Podcast with Miranda Hudson | Brewers Journal
Last month, Miranda joined the Brewers Lectures organised by Brewers Journal at Springwell, the home of North Brewing to deliver an honest and open talk on the story of Duration so far.
But also, she shared some sincere insights on her own personal journey, and how she has navigated certain hurdles along the way.

Tim Sheahan editor of Brewers Journal behind the Brewers Lectures has this to say of Miranda’s lecture:
Miranda is co-founder at Duration Brewing, a progressive farmhouse brewery that makes beers that belong in Norfolk.
Starting out as a nomadic brewery in 2017, the business she founded with her husband Bates, has become one of the most respected breweries in the UK.
Based in a beautifully renovated Norfolk barn, they continue to expand and a successful Crowdfunder was one of their biggest successes in 2022, with more than 600 supporters, which is really enabling them to truly push on the future of their brewery will set a tap room and much more besides.

Tim Sheahan – 4 June 2020
“Every time the idea came up, of us doing something ourselves, I found myself overwhelmed with the gravity of everything and what I’d need to learn. Until I step back and think I just need to allow for those interaction to happen and create an audience for the beer Bates wants to present – that’s all I need to get right…The biggest challenge in all this was lifting the lid on Bates’ brain to ensure I delivered his pretty complex mind map. It’s pretty weird having your husband as your client.”
“Perhaps the most fascinating thing I admire about Foeder Crafters is the machine engineered dual-locking grooved staves. These precision cut staves interlink in a way that allow the vessels to ‘breath’ without ever leaking, or allowing additional Co2 ingress.
“Each foeder has been seasoned with steam or by being toasted on the inside to enhance flavour profiles. The first of this foeders features no toast, heavy steam, which promote nuanced and low oak tannin/characteristics.
“The second, light toast, heavy steam, offers the same but the “added bass note” of light toast. The final foeder is specified as heavy toast, light steam, which “is essentially a big old bourbon barrel at this point”
“We’re only a few years into our story though it feels much longer. We’ve learned a lot and will continue to do so. But what I do know is this; staying at a certain size allows you to be at your most creative and really that’s why we are in this, to create in beer. And I can’t wait to discover and share that creativity with everyone.”
