On this week’s episode of the Hop Forward Podcast, Nick travels to Brewery Market on the historic Church Street in Twickenham, the Drinks Retailing Awards ‘Independent Beer Retailer of the Year 2021’.
Linda, Denis, Steph and a few of their locals appear on an impromptu episode called A Late Night Chat in an Indie Bottle Shop. We discuss everything from beers, lambics, starting and running a small business, right through to the impacts of social media on businesses and how one person even travelled from Leeds just to visit the shop due to its reputation.
The conversation is casual – the sort of thing you’d expect over a few beers late into the night.
Please note: there is a bit of excessive background noise to start with, which dies down after around 10 minutes or so – the rest of the audio from thereon is much more palatable.
