A Beer in the Loire


One family’s quest to brew British beer in the heart of French wine country – funny, endearing and sometimes just plain surreal.

Tommy Barnes was at breaking point, frustrated by a dead-end job, fed up with renting in London and, to cap it all, failing to make it as a stand-up comedian. But he didn’t break – instead he made himself redundant and took off to France with girlfriend Rose to pursue his dream of brewing beer.

Settled in a dilapidated house in the Loire they are plagued by calamities (mainly of Tommy’s making), boisterous neighbours and an unexpected pregnancy. Not to mention, Burt the Satanic dog who truly has it in for his master.

Featuring colourful characters, a stunning location, and an inspiring collection of beer recipes, this is an irresistible feast of humour and heart.
