Craft Beer Rising 2016

Will the public’s thirst for craft beer ever falter? I reckon nah. We, the British public just cannot get enough of the stuff with more independent breweries and micro-breweries around than ever.

So last week when the lovely lot over at genius food app Zomato invited me to a beer tasting evening at Bierschenke I said YES PLEASE very loudly.
