The Campaign for Real Ale’s (CAMRA) podcast Pubs. Pints. People returns for a new episode dedicated to low- and no-alcohol beers and ciders. 

The popular Pubs. Pints. People. podcast shines a light over the world of beer, cider, pubs and clubs, as well as highlighting CAMRA’s campaigning efforts.  

In the wake of Dry January, the second episode of the CAMRA podcast’s seventh series kicks off with a deep dive into the wonderful world of low- and no-alcohol beers. As the low- and no-alcohol market continues to grow, the podcast team hear from a selection of guests with insight and expertise on the subject. 

The hosts enjoy a variety of low- and no-alcohol beers and ciders, including samples from Wiper and True, Bristol Beer Factory, Hogan’s and Crafty Nectar. A full list of the drinks they tried can be found in the podcast’s show notes on Acast 

Hear from Harvey’s Head Brewer Miles Jenner on the methods they use to create their low-alcohol beer, which has been brewed since 1988. The hosts also speak to Jordan, the Head Brewer at Mash Gang who create innovative low-alcohol beers and were featured at CAMRA’s Discovery Bar at the Great British Beer Festival 2023.  

The hosts have a chat with Sonja Mitchell of Jumpship Brewery, who offer a selection of award-winning low-alcohol beers brewed in Scotland. The podcast team also catch up with Stuart Elkington, the founder of Dry Drinker, an online platform which supplies low- and no-alcohol options across the UK, as well as advice and education about the reasons for trying dry drinks.  

The new instalment also features an exploration into low- and no-alcohol cider as well as beer, including talks with cider maker Tom Tibbits and cider historian Elizabeth Pimblett about ciderkin, and a tasting session of some low/no cider with Sam Wright from the London Cider Circle.    

 The latest episode is crammed full of other exciting features and is now available on Acast, Spotify and Apple Podcast, and wherever you get your podcasts from. You can listen now by visiting https://camra.org.uk/podcast/
