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.
I don't get many opportunities to go out and enjoy a good beer or a brew related event as much as I used to. My days of being a free-loading, stay-at-home husband with all the time in the world have come to a halt and now my days are filled with assignments, studying, and the … Continue reading Bacchus Brew Bar
April has bitten the dust, and another recap is coming your way. It's been a quiet month with my decision to not attend any beer events in the month of April, giving myself some much needed recovery from Brewsvegas. I did, however, manage to go out a few times with the wife for a couple beverages … Continue reading Top 5 of April 2014 – A Month in Review
Another month has come and gone, and it's time for my second ever recap of the month that was. March was a BIG month for a lot of people here in Brisbane, with events such as Brewsvegas and the Noisy Minor Shout keeping a lot of us thoroughly hydrated (and dehydrated the next day). My … Continue reading Top 5 of March 2014 – A Month in Review
In a bid for more regular content, I've decided that I am going to start giving my top 5 favourite beers of the previous month. This is mainly because I love lists of any description. Who doesn't really? Yes, it may be lazy blogging, but I'll try and spice it up with some info on … Continue reading Top 5 of February 2014 – A Month in Review
I, along with countless others, sat today with bated breath awaiting the release of the Brewsvegas calendar. After some "We're a bit delayed this morning" tweets, the line-up was released and the flood gates of excitement were opened. 71 events spanning 8 days are what's in store for us on the inaugural event, which many … Continue reading What Happens in Brewsvegas, Stays in Brewsvegas
Another Australia Day has come and gone, and the wonderful folks at the Crafty Pint and Local TapHouse have assembled the nations votes on the top brews of 2013. Most of the good beer swilling patrons flocked to various pubs to watch the countdown. I could do a blow-by-blow of the events, but there are … Continue reading Australia Day 2014
Yesterday afternoon saw me catching up with a mate of mine whom I hadn't seen in almost 5 months. Since we were both currently not working (him because he was on annual leave and I because, well, I'm unemployed), we decided to go and grab a few beers and regale each other on tales of … Continue reading An Itch to Scratch
First post of the new year and I've decided to come out swinging. Now that I'm back in Brisbane, I've got a lot of extra time and can now devote a good deal of attention to the blog. My apologies to all who have been reading it wondering "when the heck is he going to … Continue reading Lonely Pint: A Brisbane Beer Travel Guide – Tippler’s Tap
Another year closes and I'm inclined on having a look back. I am a bit of a nostalgic individual that way. I've had some great beer this year (along with a few I would rather forget), as well as being involved with/attended some great events. Now, I've considered putting up a top beer list for … Continue reading Happy Brew Year!
