Questions For A Real-Ale Expert On My Radio Show
At a pending radio show I have a guest, Steve Davies (not the snooker player) coming in to talk about real ales as there is a major beer festival looming in Manchester.
Steve is my first returning guest as he came in just before last year’s event too.
I like to prepare questions for my guests in advance, even letting them see the lists. Having covered many obvious ones on Steve’s previous visit, I am trying to come up with new angles now. These are the questions I have in mind, so if you can think of more, do let me know here. Thanks.
The first question is a repeat just for new listeners and a handy recap.
1/. What is real ale?
2/. Has there been much change on the real ale and pub scene since your last visit?
3/. You recently presented the Neil Richardson Award to the best traditional pub, The Lamb Inn, in Eccles. Can you tell us more about that?
4/. The Beer Festival is on again from Thursday – is it bigger than last year’s?
