Republic of Beer
Being one of the oldest alcoholic drinks, beer takes important role in our society. No matter whether you are in a small town or a large metropolitan area you can find a pub or more importantly a beer festival. Mostly organised by Campaign for Real Ale, beer festivals are present in every part of the country, every single week. Republic of Beer is my approach to answer a simple but annoying question - Why is beer such an effective social glue? Driven by my compelling interest in beer and love for travelling, this work is the result of 12 months of exploration and over five thousand miles done around United Kingdom all the way from Belfast to Cardiff.
