About this Volume

Outside, the cool winter air has become more temperate and the leaves are returning to the trees - spring has arrived and with it comes the promise of rejuvenation.  Embracing the season, Volume 04 seeks to build upon one simple principle; to provide original and engaging content from the world of beer and brewing. 

In his extended essay, Alec Latham ponders the difficulties of describing taste as we become acclimatised to the familiar and develop ever more weird and wonderful palates.  Travelling the length and breadth of the country, we battle the inclement conditions to witness an almost unprecedented collaboration in Cornwall.  Heading north, we explore West Yorkshire and ask if the city of Leeds might well be the region’s capital of beer.

As we naturally gravitate towards the nation’s capital, we head to a rainy Borough Market for a few pints and a no-nonsense chat with Melissa Cole.  Back in the comfort of our own home, cooking and brewing have taken a fresh turn, as we’re joined by Ross Featherstone and Grant Walker to serve up some crisp and comforting spring sustenance.
