I really started to miss malty beers after a long QLD summer. Hazies and kettle sours are cool and all but I do enjoy the darker maltier creamier beers on cool winter nights.

There’s been a heap of great releases, some new trends I’ve enjoyed and a lot of breweries embracing wintertime with special events and beers to match the season. Nitro beer boom I’ve long been a big fan of nitro beers. When Mornington Peninsula annouced the first Australian brewed nitro beer in cans, I wondered aloud whet ..read more

It was only a few short years back that you couldn’t find good beer for love nor money in an airport, sports stadium or shopping centre.
