Life as we know it began with a little bang. Well, a big bang, but it was quite little, apparently. Little Bang Brewing Company began as a small operation and just like the acceleration of mass at the beginning of time, it got larger really quickly. The prime movers behind this operation are Fil Kemp and Ryan Davidson, and they run a brewery and cellar door in Stepney each Friday, Saturday and Sunday but tonight, they’ve opened their doors to talk about beermaking, winemaking and video games midweek. Gentlemen, game on!

We discuss

  • How important it is to be a nerd when making computer games or craft beer
  • How video games are addictive – it is all about positive feedback with repetitive actions and extra risk leading to extra rewards
  • Whether virtual reality might create a link between violence in video games and violent action
  • What equipment makes the most difference – heat transfer mechanism
  • Whether craft beer businesses are relaxing or hard work
  • What makes a good combination for brewing teams
