Perry and Potatoes
There are many surprises in store for James when Oz takes him to Wales. First they find a 'beverage plant' that makes famous 'foreign beers' from all over the world, and then they visit a farmer who makes 'designer vodka' from potato wine.
Next they meet one of Oz's mates on a farm in Herefordshire and try an ancient British drink known as perry, which is made from pears. They discover that perry had quite a reputation back in the 1970s when it was sold in small bottles and was well known under another name, Babycham.
After weeks of preparation, or hours in Oz's case, it is time for James and Oz's caravan-brewed beers to be judged at the Worcester Beer Festival by a hand-picked panel of 'beer experts'. It is a tense moment. Will the best man, or beer, win?
Following the surprising outcome of the great beer competition, and after so much beer, Oz decides that it is time to visit a vineyard, and where better than Three Choirs in Gloucestershire? What will James's nose make of proper English wine?
