Hilary and Lisa talk to Grainne from Metalman.
Grainne Walsh is one of two founders at Metalman together with her partner Tim. She is also the Head Brewer. She is not primarily in marketing, except for today on this show. We get right into the early days of home-brewing and making the transition from tech work to beer as a career, sexism, changing palettes, recipe formulation, and then on to Brexit, pandemic experiences, health, hops, and Turkish Delight. Many thanks to Metalman and Grainne for coming on the show, and for some great amber ales. And if you like spice, the refreshing Razzbeer is likely to last as long as a movie character played by Sean Bean.
