Podcast producer Katie Wiles says: “The new podcast has been a fantastic means of staying connected with our members and beer lovers, particularly during the difficult period of pub closures earlier this year. What’s fantastic about beer and pubs is that it’s a topic that gives us a huge amount of scope and material to chat about – from modern brewing methods to diving into CAMRA’s rich 50-year archive. We’ve had some fantastic guests on the show to date and can’t wait to chat with more in season two!”
