In this episode we'll be trying to answer the question, "Is beer posh?"

Prompted by the rise of more expensive and exclusive beers we discuss the relevance of posh beers and taste some beers we think fall into this category.

We have an interview with Roger Ryman from St Austell Brewery who really get's to the crux of the question.

A note about the audio... we had a few technical issues with sound quality in the last 10 minutes of the programme. Apologies for this. It is an issue that we will iron out before the next podcast.


We taste Chapel Down's Curious Brew - a lager made with champagne yeast.


We also taste Sharp's Connoisseurs Choice Quadrupel
