May 23, 2018

Are Craft Beer sites like Untappd, RateBeer and Beer Advocate helping or hindering the industry?I was sitting at a table of people from the beer industry the other night…brewers, owners, sales guys etc. One of the guys at the table (thanks “anonymous”) told me he had an idea for me to do an article on…what […]

Picking a mixed six pack is stressful! Have you ever given another craft beer loving friend a mixed six pack of stuff they have never tried? I have this week, and oh boy am I feeling the pressure?   It seems like a pretty easy task from the outset…   “Hey mate, why don’t we […]

Check out any of your favourite beer bloggers websites, or social media feeds, and you will most likely find them talking about the latest, hard to find, limited release beer from “ABC Brewery”.

Beer Chauffeurs Popping Craft Beer Cherries

February 28, 2017

Pop Goes The Craft Beer Cherry!So recently I grabbed my mate Ben and took him down to a local beer festival.

Today I got called a Beer Snob!

January 25, 2017

WTF? I am no Beer Snob…or am I? So, the other day I was having a beer with a few mates and was offered a beer…nothing special, just your average Mainstream Lager that any beer consumer would have drunk at some stage in their life. Anyway, I politely declined, preferring to reach into my own […]

Is Bali Ready For The Craft Beer Revolution?

October 16, 2016

Craft Beer In Bali…do they want it? So we have just returned from a family holiday in Bali…and I am cold! It was 32 – 35 degrees celsius there every day, now I am sitting at home in tracksuit pants and a hoodie as I shiver through the second day in Hobart under 15 degrees! […]

Do We Have Double Standards With Craft Beer Brands?

August 29, 2016

Are there double standards with the way we think of brands in the craft beer industry, compared to other industries? I don’t have the answer, but it has made me think.
