Buster Grant in What's Brewing

Thinking about beer reminded me of an article in May's What's Brewing, the newspaper of CAMRA. On the back page, the featured brewer is our very own Buster Grant, pictured looking thoughtfully at a glass of beer. The article was written by Buster, who had just become the new chairman of SIBA, the Society of Independent Brewers.
Over the years, he's been a bar manager at the GBBF (stepping down finally in 2015), and this influenced his decision to do an MSc in brewing and distilling. He goes on to talk about the importance of beer quality at the point of serving, something that the brewers have no power over, as it is done by the staff of the pub where the beer is being sold, and he goes on to discuss fair pricing for cask beer, and he looks forward to seeing a thriving, imaginative and sustainable brewing industry, with close collaboration between SIBA and CAMRA.
