Ben Richards launches Finding Beer project to explore self-sufficiency in brewing

Following on from his first series, Growing Beer, Ben has spent 2020 discovering what it takes to brew without the benefit of global supply chains, commercial equipment or modern techniques. Going back in time to understand how our ancestors brewed as well as discovering what ingredients can be found in the natural environment around us, Ben’s going back to basics to ask what it takes to really do it yourself.

You can follow the ups, downs, success and failures through the podcast as all 5 new episodes are released between now and December, each one interviewing an expert in their field to help understand and tackle the challenges ahead. These and the previous series are on Apple podcastsSpotify and, whilst if you want to find out more about the project or speak to Ben feel free to email him at
