For most people, the idea that beer writers even exist is a hard one to conceive. Yet there's an evolving media landscape dedicated in one way or another to the beer world. Here we look at how it's changed over the years.
Sydney Beer is, we'd suggest, rather more than a blog. Tim Hodge has created a place where he gathers news, events, opinion and more, all united by one thing: they take place in or are about the burgeoning Sydney craft beer scene.
The title of this article may be a little misleading as the latest person to appear in our featured beer blogs series isn't an Aussie. Hannah Louise Grugel is a Brit who started writing about beer in the UK and has continued since landing in Sydney last year.
With Brewsvegas set to launch this week, for our latest focus on one of the many beer-focused blogs in Australia, we turn to Brisbane. There we find Schoonerversity, created by Mick Wust because, well, because he loves sharing good beer.
Journalist Glen Humphries was already writing a beer book when he scooped the 2016 AIBA Media Award. That win changed his view on his writing and inspired him to turn it into a very different beer book, The Slab.
Readers of The Crafty Pint will be familiar with Matt King as he's responsible for most of our coverage of the SA beer scene. Now he's launched his own site that looks to cover the state in even greater depth.
He loves beer, he loves travel, and he loves to hunt down new beers when he travels. So Matt Johnson decided to start capturing his passions via another one: photography, creating offthetap and attracting Instagram followers in the thousands.
It was only supposed to be a means of sharing recipes, but a beer filled trip to Wellington saw one Brisbane beer geek's blog become morph into something else. A year on from its launch, we ask Jamie to tell us all about Food Grog Blog.
Our latest featured beer blog is The Year of Beer, one fairly recent convert to craft beer on a mission to document his adventures in beer – and convert his mates and missus to the good stuff too.
It's time to showcase another Aussie beer blog. New South Ales is one of the best-looking we've seen, run by a writer / photographer couple who focus on the people and stories making the NSW beer scene what it is.
