Heard a fun story early this morning on BBC World Service, program "From Our Own Correspondent" about the decline of the traditional English pub, the rise of "real ale" and of women's interest in beer & brewing. I'm in Chicago, have never been to the UK, and found this an interesting window on craft beer across the pond. Link It's from the current episode dated 2/16/13. You have to click on the picture a couple of times to start the audio. The story runs from 14:30 to 19:02.
