It's that time of year again! The 4th annual Brewsvegas festival is kicking off next week and I for one am pumped that it's back. With such a large program, it can sometimes be a bit difficult to select your itinerary and if you're a bit of a spend-thrift like I, you tend to … Continue reading Best Valued Brewsvegas Events!

Being a blogger, I generally don't have to worry about my appearance. I can sit and type out a post in nothing but my underwear and 3 day uncombed hair. As a matter of fact, that's what I'm currently sporting. ~pause to allow that image to creep into your sub-conscience~ When I go out, I … Continue reading T-Shirt Anxiety
When asked about what the best part of Brisbane’s beer scene, I can unequivocally say it’s the people we have. Our bar staff, beer reps, brewers, and punters are, dare I say it, the best in the world. Hop into any one of our venues, get to chatting with a local, and you’ll be forced … Continue reading Brewing Up Some Altruism
When I was asked if I wanted to help brew a beer with my fellow blog cohorts for Bacchus' upcoming 'Brumalia Festival', I thought 'hells ya!'. The last time I was involved with a Bacchus beer, it was for the Beer Bloggers series back at the end of 2013, and I was sadly (not really … Continue reading Brumalia! Beer naming, goat sacrifice, and Roman sex parties.

The premise was pretty simple: create a limerick based on beer, bars, or Brewsvegas and have a chance to win beery prizes donated by the great folks of the Brisbane good beer scene. … Continue reading Bards of Brewsvegas Winners Announcement!
It would appear that fortune is smiling on this blogger. I managed to track down and get a few minutes to talk to the ever-elusive brewer from Newstead Brewing. Finding the man behind the much vaunted "Hammerhead", is about as rare as finding unicorn poo or a decent bottle of Hammerhead. To achieve this, I … Continue reading Insight into Legend
As the end of the year rapidly approaches, I sit here in the humid, Townsville heat and think back to the year that was. When I did my first Brew Years round up last year, I had really only been in operation for about 5 months, with all but a mere 2 weeks being in … Continue reading Happy Brew Year! 2015
Home before 12. That has to be some sort of record... Good night out tonight and met a lot of great new people. Cheers!
When asked to come up with characteristics of a typical "beer person", a few traits spring to mind. Some may attribute them as being snobby or maybe enthusiastic. Some may view them as bearded hipsters, while others may see them as discerning people looking for the best taste. But normally, the terms "hero" and "philanthropist" … Continue reading Worlds Greatest Shave @ Newstead Brewing Co
Some of you may have noticed a lack of information about "Craft Beer Rising" in my previous postings. I will admit, it's due to a slight twinge of bitterness and resentment. This doesn't come from anything that the CBR14 crew did or any lack of interest in the events; quite the contrary. It stems from … Continue reading (Unofficial) Craft Beer Rising in Townsville
