Roger Protz is one of the world’s leading beer writers, historians, lecturers and tasters With over 20 books under his belt on the subject, he has also edited more than 20 editions of the annual CAMRA Good Beer Guide, given many public tutored beer tastings, including the annual Great British Beer Festival among many others, and campaigned tirelessly for CAMRA in the fight for cask conditioned real ale.

In this episode, we talk to the man himself at the recent Sheffield’s Steel City Beer & Cider festival about how he has seen the beer industry and culture change, and his opinions on everything from what makes a good beer to whether hardcore CAMRA members should be concerned with their CO2.
