Mental Health in the Beer Industry

with Paul Jones from Cloudwater

Season 1


Episode 30

In this week’s episode, Nick ventures over the Pennines to one of the leading breweries in contemporary beer: Cloudwater Brew Co.

However, if you’re expecting an episode about how Cloudwater rose to success and fortune, or how they obtain bold, punchy flavours in their beers, then think again!

We caught up with founder and director, Paul Jones, in Cloudwater’s Unit 9 Tap Room to chat about mental health and the impact of negative social media – a.k.a Beer Twitter – on brewers in today’s industry.

Paul shares his first-hand experience the triumphs and the criticisms Cloudwater have faced over their relatively short history, and how he and the team have managed to keep their head in the game.
