In this world of unparalled choice, where kegs, bottles and cans of all styles constantly cry out for our attention, what’s the value of cask ale?

Beer: it’s powerful stuff. In fact, all evidence points to it being one of the main reasons behind civilisation as we know it.
So why shouldn’t it change the world?
In this bitesize edition of Fermentation Beer & Brewing Radio, Emma speaks to artist, beer writer, queer activist and founder of the Queer Brewing Project, a collaborative beer project aiming to raise the profile of LGBTQ people in the brewing & hospitality industries.

From your local brewery tap room to a UK beer city, from closer to home to further afield, more people are planning their holiday based on the beer and beer experiences on offer. And, on this episode, Emma investigates beer tourism.

The project is called ‘Citizens of Everywhere’ and the person behind it is Justin Hawke, founder and head brewer at Moor Beer.
The full list of breweries involved in the project, and the European Union achievement they will be following is:
