In our first ever episode, we start by exploring the ingredients behind the UK's favourite alcohol, beer! Wine educator Lucy Stevenson meets Ben Richards, a journalist who spent 2017 growing all the ingredients needed to brew his own beer. Most brewers buy in their ingredients from wholesalers or specialist retailers, but not Ben! He tells the story of "the least commercially viable beer ever made" and along the way explains how beer is made, what it's made from, and exactly how much hard work goes into achieving a great glass of beer.
