Trouble Brewing in the Loire
Three years after establishing his British microbrewery in the heart of French wine country, Tommy Barnes is planning to expand and modernise, with calamitous results…
Burt, the devil dog, has risen from the dead. Gadget, the miniature horse, has moved into the kitchen and Tommy is thinking about diversifying. What can possibly go wrong? With Brexit looming, a second baby on the way, and sales of IPA beer plummeting, the future looks gloomy. But just as Tommy reaches rock bottom, inspiration arrives.
With delicious beer-infused recipes, and the wit and warmth that suffused A Beer in the Loire, this is a feast of humour and heart celebrating France, family and friendship.
‘An anti-hero to the home brewer, Barnes’ writing froths and unexpectedly eddies - his second work is certainly no stuck fermentation…’
