Mitch Wilkins is a multidisciplinary writer and aspiring stay at home dog dad, based in Brisbane. When not behind the keyboard, he can be found slinging beers at Fortitude Valley's Netherworld or often on the other side of the bar playing pinball or boards games while downing something big and malty.
The beer(s) or moment(s) that turned you on to good beer:
Cooper's Best Extra Stout - I originally got onto this when I realised that no one would steal it at house parties, but soon found it to be a bloody good drop!
You've got three beers to turn someone else onto good beer; what are they and why?
The last beer you enjoyed:
Ballistic Brewing Ex-IPA. I had a thorough go at three or four pints of this to make sure it was good after work on the weekend (it was).
Three things that represent you:
Kveik might be hogging the headlines for many but one Brisbane brewing team has taken inspiration from another Northern European beer style – one that involves baking the mash first: Lithuanian keptinis.

The Crafty Pint is an independent online magazine and resource for anyone interested in craft beer in Australia. We bring an honest, old-fashioned journalistic approach to beer's brave new world, telling stories because they're worth telling not because someone is paying us to write them.
Like many of the people who have changed the face of beer in Australia, we believe in authenticity, integrity, enjoyment and love. We hope to play a role in helping good beer, brewed by good people, find its way into the hands of more drinkers.
