A day before the pubs closed AL was lucky enough to visit The Wood Brewery, home to the famous Shropshire Lad bitter. This episode had been in the planning for a long time. Wrought with the constant bombardment of crisis in Shropshire, we are so happy to finally bring this episode to you.
The episode begins with AL following Rory around the brewery while he expertly explains the process in how Wood’s make their delicious beer.
After the tour AL and Rory meet up with Wood’s owner Stephen O’Neill in a cosy corner of the Plough Inn (home of the Wood Brewery) and they record a nice calm podcast. Stephen and Rory teach AL about the history of Wood’s Brewery, about the upcoming events that are coming up and about how they make their beer taste the way it does.
Then the guys get down to tasting some beer, (yes AL breaks his Keto vows!) they taste 5 products, one of which Wood’s is very proud of. Find out why further on in the episode.
It was such an honour to be welcomed into Wood’s Brewery and AL was astounded by the hospitality shown to him and would like to say a huge thank you to Rory and Stephen for being so kind.
