Press Release


Crack into some celebratory brews this long weekend with Pubs. Pints. People.


The latest episode of the popular CAMRA podcast Pubs. Pints. People. features ‘celebratory brews’ in recognition of the forthcoming Platinum Jubilee Weekend. 

As beer drinkers flood to the pubs to raise a glass to Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the Pubs. Pints. People. hosts will look at some of the celebratory events taking place over the weekend and speak to some of the brewers making exciting ‘big brews’ to raise a glass with. 

First on the show will be Fergus Fitzgerald, head brewer of Adnams and creator of the ‘Thank Brew’ recipe, a 3.5% ABV easy drinking pale ale that is being brewed and sold by brewers and publicans to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee. All proceeds from the brew are going to charitable causes, and beer-lovers and seek out Thank Brew using CAMRA’s interactive Summer of Pub map, which aims to encourage pub-going over the summer month. 

Hosts will also sit down with Adam Green from Old Street Brewery and Oliver Meckler from Symbiose in the Netherlands, to talk about their big celebratory brews, from bourbon-barrelled stouts to champagne-styled beers brewed with grapes. 

Podcast producer Katie Wiles says: “We’re all looking forward to raising a glass to the Queen – and to each other – after a difficult few years of the pandemic. I hope listeners will tune in to learn more about some great events taking place and some fantastic brews to sample over the weekend.” 

As part of the podcast tour, hosts will also have a special spotlight on the city of Glasgow ahead of the Glasgow Real Ale Festival on 16-18 June.  

In recognition of the varied roles undertaken by volunteers who help make CAMRA’s portfolio of 180+ local festivals around the country, hosts will sit down with Walter Ross to learn a bit about the role of a festival steward, a real unsung hero of the festival. 

Wiles adds: “Beer festivals are a fantastic way to sample some real celebratory ‘big’ brews, one-of-a-kind beer experiences. We hope Glasgow locals make their way to this fantastic festival and those further afield pencil in the return of CAMRA’s flagship, the Great British Beer Festival, this August in London!”
