Listen to episode thirteen of Scran, the podcast that is passionate about Scottish food and drink.

If you’re a woman who loves beer then Beer Without Beards – a group for women who like beer and would like to get together to enjoy it in good company – is worth checking out.

To celebrate International Women’s Day on this week’s Scran, we sit down and talk craft beer with the group’s founder, Amélie Tassin.

Amélie discusses how and why she set up Beers Without Beards, what new members can expect from meet ups, craft beer collaborations and their plans for International Women’s Day.

Scotsman food and drink editor, Sean Murphy is also in the studio to chat about brewing and his desert island drinks.
