I Know What I Like

1973

Documentary, featuring Bernard Cribbins, which explores the process of brewing beer.

Presented by The Brewers' Society and featuring Bernard Cribbins in multiple roles, the documentary explains the process of brewing beer, from the pasture to the pint. After ordering a pint at his local and taking a sip, the actor Bernard Cribbins sets out to explain the brewing process, with a little help from some of his 'relatives' in the industry, all played by Cribbins himself. One 'cousin' explains the malting process, where barley is germinated and malted, whilst another talks about hops, which contribute to the flavour of beer. His 'uncle', who works in a traditional brewery, explains the process, from the spurging of barley in mush tuns to the addition of hops, followed by yeast to aid fermentation, before the beer is conditioned and siphoned into casks. Brewing on an industrial scale is also explained by Cribbins, with the help of one 'relative' who grows large amounts of barley, and a 'distant relative' who works as a technician at a large brewer. The film concludes with a glimpse at pub life, with a variety of environments catering for a range of tastes, but linked together by one thing: beer. With the process explained, Cribbins heads back to the bar for another pint, which is pulled by the governor, his 'father'.
