What was the first beer that made you think about beer? Was it the first time you saw a magnificent Guinness pour?

You may have heard of this mysterious Norwegian brewing ingredient already. If you haven’t, you likely will soon. But just what is “super-yeast” kveik? Is it true it can fully ferment a beer in 36 hours? Is it somehow related to kriek, the cherry lambics originating in Belgium? Can it really…

The Incubators: Batch Brewing News

This is a story of stories. Of influence and invisible threads. Mostly, though, it's about two people and their brewery.  Chris Sidwa and Andrew Fineran are not from around here but five years ago, in December 2013, they opened a brewery here, in Marrickville. Back then they had this idea that…

Beer Travel: Another Belgium News

I realised this year that I had been to most countries in Europe, but never to Belgium. For someone who writes beer travel stories it had become a bit of a joke. Spontaneously, I decided it was time to fill the gap on the map. I was curious about the stories of newer Belgian brewers; plenty has…
