What is Small Brewers Relief?

Season 3, Ep. 6

This week, Clare, Ant and Matt are discussing Small Brewers Relief (SBR) and the fact that the government has proposed changes that could hurt small brewers just when some are working out if they can survive at all. Our first interview is with Jack Hobday of Anspach and Hobday, a small independent brewery based in Croydon, south London, he's chatting to Chris Portsmore. Then, Owen Ralph is asking the questions for our second interviewee, Neil Walker, head of communications and marketing at SIBA, the Society of Independent Brewers.
