Beer and Brewer Feature

Readers may be aware that I am a founding committee member of Melbourne’s largest brewing club. Our members have fostered the club’s growth in surprising and encouraging directions since we incorporated more than a year ago, and recently we were featured in the latest issue of the quarterly Beer and Brewer.

The write-up for the magazine by committee member Timothy Train focuses on our first year and inaugural competition, the 2015 Specialty IPA comp.

The spread also includes the recipe of the beer that won Beer of Show in our 2015 competition, a profile of two of our best brewers and a few photographs, including one of yours truly pontificating over a glass of goji berry pale ale.

Merri Mashers Brewing Demonstration

This video is promoting a recent brewing demonstration my club did at the Catfish, a relaxed bar with great beer, as part of Good Beer Week 2015 in Melbourne, Australia.

It was a fun day and good times were had by all. An earlier brew of the Red IPA recipe we were demonstrating was being served on tap inside and it took less than two hours to blow the fifty-litre keg.
