On the Hop Forward Podcast this week, we mix skateboards with brewing as we talk to Beer Riff’s Rhys Pillai all about the Swansea based brewery and tap room.

We discuss everything from building a brand and a business in a coastal city far from the UK’s brewing and beer hubs such as Manchester, Newcastle and London; through to recent the crowdfunding woes consumers have faced when their favourite breweries have failed to deliver.

Nick also shares some musings from his recent race around Sheffield over the weekend and applies it to running a beer business.
