Cheers for Queer Beer!

Episode: 10

When Bhavini Patadia met their now-girlfriend Saskia Ullman, they didn’t even really drink beer- they just drank it to impress her. On today’s episode, both Bhavini and Saskia tell the story of how that initial attempts to woo a girl led to the founding of Queer Beer: a full-fledged brewery driven by the goal of creating space for and giving back to London’s LGBTQ+ community.
