Pubs. Pints. People.

The Campaign for Real Ale's new podcast Pubs. Pints. People. brings you interesting stories every other week about the world of beer, cider and pubs. Tune in every Tuesday with hosts Clare Phillips, Ant Fiorillo and Matt Bundy as they chat to special guests and learn about beer writing, brewing jobs, cider making and more.

CAMRA is a not-for-profit consumer organisation that campaigns for great beer in great pubs. It is made up of nearly 200,000 beer-lovers around the UK - to join, visit join.camra.org.uk

Clare Phillips

Clare was first introduced to real ale and CAMRA when she moved to a new job in Suffolk and was invited to the local beer festival by her journalist colleagues. She initially joined the West Suffolk branch and was actively involved with local beer festivals as a volunteer and for a couple of years helped organise a festival in Bury St Edmunds. Living in a rural county, Clare recognises the value of village pubs to their communities and with Suffolk and Norfolk being large barley growing areas, there’s also no shortage of breweries offering a wide selection of ales in her area.

Matt Bundy

Matt is a proud member of the Mid-Chilterns branch who discovered CAMRA at his local pub, The Rising Sun in Berkhamsted, where he enjoys nothing more than a good pub quiz over a few local ales. He is originally from Cumbria and takes regular pilgrimages to stock up on ales from his home county. He is the podcast’s cider aficionado and is currently trying his hand at making his own home-grown cider, with mixed results. When not down the pub he works in comedy television and has turned his hand to stand-up comedy, also with mixed results.

Ant Fiorillo

A Northerner at heart, Ant moved to Bedford after his job bought him down to the South East. While he’s far from a seasoned ale drinker, joining CAMRA has allowed him to indulge his passion for socialising, enjoying a decent pint and now even bring back some of that entertainer he left overseas to our very own podcast. You’ll often hear Ant before you see him, but he’s always ready to share something delicious with anyone he meets.
