Brisbane's beer community gathered at the Showgrounds last night for the third annual Beeries. The celebration of the local beer scene was just that: a celebration.
At this year's Beeries, the Gold Beery for Best Community Contributor went to Chicks With Ales, a group for beer loving women. We caught up with brewer, microbiologist and former pro basketballer Kerry Claydon to find out more.
The wider Brisbane beer community came together last night for the annual celebration going by the name The Beeries. There were popular wins aplenty on a night Cameron Dick MP was christened the "Minister for Craft Beer".
Queensland's craft beer community came together en masse last night to celebrate The Beeries, an awards with a difference. Instead of judging beers and breweries, it handed out awards to the people that make up the state's industry.
If two awards nights in 24 hours wasn't enough to sate you, don't worry: The Beeries is coming. It's a beer awards with a difference, one that focuses on the broader beer community and the people within and comes to Brisbane in September.
