Media Library

Archive of our BBC RADIO DERBY sessions

This library is dedicated to storing all of our BBC Radio Derby appearances, where we talk about beer and make recommendations to listeners. This is a great resource for anyone who wants to learn more about beer and hear about some of the latest and greatest brews out there.

Our appearances on BBC Radio Derby are a great way to stay up-to-date with the latest beer trends and recommendations. We cover a wide range of topics, from pairing beer with the right glassware to understanding different beer styles. We also make recommendations on the best beers to try and where to find them.

We invite you to visit our Archive Library, and listen to our past shows, and also tune in to our future appearances on BBC Radio Derby. (We will announce over social media when we are on). If you’re a beer lover, this is definitely a resource you don’t want to miss. Cheers!
