Fermentation Beer & Brewing Radio is an award-winning audio magazine show exploring the very best of the contemporary beer and brewing scene in the UK and beyond. The show is produced and presented by the current British Beer Writer of the Year – beer writer and creative audio producer, Emma Inch.
“Wow what a podcast, so glad I found this. The best UK focused beer / brewing podcast. Exceptionally high quality content and production. Up there with the Craft Beer Channel on YouTube.”
(B on Apple Podcasts, May 2018)
“I’ve listened to a lot of beer / Brewing podcasts over the years and learnt a massive amount about the American Craft beer scene as a result. The lack of UK centric beer radio has finally been resolved by this excellent show. Great interviews, quality information and genuinely entertaining. I particularly enjoy the interviews with head brewers. Cheers”

Fermentation Beer & Brewing Radio started life in January 2016 as a monthly radio show on community station, Radio Reverb. It was the first (and still only) regular beer and brewing show on FM radio in the UK.
After three years in which the show included interviews with more than 70 breweries from across the world, plus features about homebrewing, beer culture and food matching, the show moved to a podcast-only format. A new episode is released every two weeks and can be downloaded and listened to at your leisure.
“Our Gold award goes to someone whose online presence includes a magazine format radio show and a website that ties the shows together. The shows have a real energy, and people at their heart.”

In October 2019 Fermentation Beer & Brewing Radio was named as runner-up in the Best Beer Podcast/Broadcast in the prestigious North American Guild of Beer Writers Awards. It has also been significant in other awards awarded to producer and host, Emma Inch.
