Fermentation in Isolation – A Coronavirus Podcast for the Beer & Pub Industry Launches

A new weekly podcast featuring topical updates from trade bodies, consumer organisations, brewers, and more launches this Thursday (2nd April).

Fermentation in Isolation is a spin-off from the multi award-winning Fermentation Beer & Brewing Radio podcast and will feature regular coronavirus updates from representatives of SIBA, CAMRA, BII & BBPA, plus other useful content for both trade and consumer alike.

Fermentation in Isolation is produced and presented by former British Beer Writer of the Year, Emma Inch. She says,

‘I’ve been working on ways in which I can use the resources available to me in a way that both informs and supports the industry I love at this incredibly difficult time. By providing a platform for industry bodies and organisations to share vital information, I hope to play a small part in getting those important messages out there.’

In addition to these important updates, Fermentation in Isolation will also feature information on how breweries and pubs are coping with lockdown, and where consumers can get hold of beer. There’ll also be chats with Fermentation Beer & Brewing Radio regulardrinks writer Jane Peyton, and features on some of the small moments of hope arising from the current crisis.

‘This is a terrible time for both brewers and pubs alike,’ Emma says, ‘but amidst the sadness and worry, there are occasional glimmers of positivity. For example, pubs reaching out to vulnerable people, and brewers supporting – and being supported by – their local communities. I want to showcase stories like that to try to keep us all afloat until this is over.’

Fermentation in Isolation launches on Thursday 2nd April. A new episode will be available every Thursday via the usual Fermentation Beer & Brewing Radio channel on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, other podcast providers, or via the website
