S07E04: The Great Australian Beer Festival (Geelong) Trek

PODCAST | In this loud and unintentionally music-filled episode, Chris, Paul and guest-host Ben tour the Great Australian Beer Festival in Geelong, Victoria and along the way banter with Barrow Boys Brewing about festival beers; hold a forum with 4 Pines Beer about amazing one-offs; observe with Odyssey Craft Brewing Company the glory of the craft beer culture; powwow with Pirate Life Brewing about their future (and unexpectedly cool) beers; and hustle with Hawkers Beer about their staggering growth.

We also drink beer and find ourselves with an unexpectedly large amount of background music (sorry about that).

Featured brewers: Barrow Boys Brewing, 4 Pines Beer, Odyssey Craft Brewing Company, Pirate Life Brewing, and Hawkers Beer.

Unintentional, but excellent background music: the strings and voice of Rach Brennan, the echoes of Joe Mungovan, and perhaps a slight trace of Pat Tierney.

Chris is an editor, writer, and occasional novelist who in a former life published online magazines for a living while working out of obscure coffee shops. He has travelled extensively and has eaten and enjoyed exotic delights ranging from instant ‘just add water’ potatoes while on a Russian train to snails and Brie from a tiny Montreal kitchen. Chris is a great lover of the experiences around and associated with food and believes the culture of a venue, as quirky or strange as it might be, is just as important as the food it sells. He is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast dedicated to the lighter side of craft beer.
