The Crafty Planner: September 17 to 23
Crafty Pint / 17.09.12
It was a quiet week in terms of craft beer events last week – at least according to the Craft Pint Events Diary – so we let the Planner take a week off to recharge the batteries. It looks like it was time well spent as there’s a jam-packed lineup for the coming seven days, with meet the brewer sessions, dinners, beer education sessions and more from coast to coast.
So, if anything below takes your fancy, head to the Events Diary for full details of how to get involved. And if you’ve got anything crafty and beery taking place somewhere in Australia, send the details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
