When you’re not drinking beer then try the next best thing – talking about it!

Whether you’re stuck in traffic, on the train or walking the dog, stick on a beer podcast. They’ll provide you with hours of entertainment and let you brush up on your beer knowledge.

We take a look at some of our favourite beer podcasts. And we don’t just serve you the usual suspects from the US, we look at a batch of good old British broadcasts. Great little shows with chat from professional brewmasters, home brew enthusiasts and beer fans. They share their thoughts, stories, the latest industry trends and their musings about beer. So whatever you’re doing you can sit back, relax and soak it all up…

The Beer o’clock Show

You’ll find that a lot of beer podcasts are US-based. As interesting as they are, if you want to know about the UK brewing industry, you’ll need to stay closer to home. The Beer O’Clock Show is a weekly podcast posted at Beer O’clock (6pm) every Friday and features beer reviews, musings and banter from across the industry.

We made a beer

Another UK podcast, created by two beer novices learning about beer by brewing it, drinking it and chatting to the experts. It digs a little deeper than most beer podcasts and delves into beer culture, beer gastronomy and takes a sneaky peak at beer’s place in society!
