Frustrated by a dead end job, fed up with renting and the loathsome daily commute, and to cap it all, failing to make it as a stand-up comedian – Tommy Barnes was at breaking point.
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 were beset by calamities, mad neighbours and an unexpected pregnancy.
Featuring colourful characters, a stunning location and a satanic dog, A Beer in the Loire is an irresistible feast of humour and heart. Chaired by Martin Greig.
