It’s strange really. What started as a personal challenge has rapidly grown into something that has taken me across the country, over to Europe and into the national media.
The last 9 months have been exciting, entertaining and tiring, but so far I’m still just about on track to make that beer only from ingredients grown or gathered on the allotment. The interest in the project has been great, with features in various magazines, local press and The Guardian, national and Devon-wide radio coverage.
Growing Beer has also been featured on regional television, whilst this week will see me showcase the project on Gardeners World – 9pm, BBC2 on Friday (27th September). I’ve also been speaking about the adventure at various public and private events, including River Cottage and Powderham festivals.
And last but not least, the Growing Beer podcast is now live. Running for 10 weeks you can join me on the journey from the very beginning right up to the final tasting, assuming everything goes to plan. It’s free, and you can listen or find out more from the growingbeer.co.uk website.
