When you go on holiday to the south coast, you might travel to Devon. Perhaps to the rather twee and delightful fishing village of Beer. You’ll find a pleasant pebble beach, welcoming tea-houses and cafes, some very high-end art galleries and cosy pubs. You might wander into one of those pubs seeking a pint of local beer … you are in Beer after all. However, you might be in for a surprise because not only is there no beer from Beer, you won’t find any from the nearest brewery of Branscombe Vale. This struck us as odd, so we sent my producer, Johnny Mindlin, to investigate.
