We’re back! Well, virtually at least.

In this explosive episode, Chris, Jeff, Kyle, and Paul, are joined by the woman behind marketing many of your favourite beer events, marketing and events expert Mariella Mejia. In this brutally-frank conversation, we talk about Mariella being involved in the budding craft beer scene in Melbourne, Good Beer Week, the state of the independent brewery scene, and we deep dive into the world of beer influencing and what to look out for the next time you’re doomscrolling through craft beer social media.

We also celebrate Oktoberfest with an old and a new take on the traditional German Helles Lager.

Finally, we also mention our interview with Lagunitas founder, Tony McGee. You can find it on S12E01: The Lagunitas Episode.

Featured beers: Weihenstephaner Original by Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan and Lager Life by Mr Banks Brewing Co.

Note: This episode was made virtually, you know, via computers and things and, due to some software teething issues, you might notice a slight echo occasionally. We’ve done our best to silence it, but just don’t be alarmed if there are moments where it sounds a little like a small concert hall.

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.
