In our 33rd podcast, we bring you part 2 of our weekend spent drinking at The Pilcrow Pub’s Summer Beer Thing beer festival from the last few days of Manchester Beer Week.
The Pilcrow were kind enough to give us a corner to sit in and talk to brewers, bloggers, boozers and everything inbetween.
This episode covers Sat June 2nd & Sun June 3rd, Day 2 and 3 of the festival.
You can find Part 1 here:
In this podcast we talk to:
Becky from The Pilcrow
She helped to organise the festival so she sits down with us to discuss the planning, the beer, the stress and the headsets.
We get her reaction on the last day of how the weekend went too.

Ian was involved in our MCR Beer Week V Beernomicon pub crawl event representing Hawkshead and talking about their collab beer with Blackjack Beers, so we talk to Ian about the evening and the rest of his MCR Beer Weeks experiences. He tells us about his busy schedule during the week, his experience of beer festivals as a brewer and tells us a little about the Hawkshead tasting at Summer Beer Thing.
