NEW INITIATIVES

Beer O'Clock Australia has reached 200 posts and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who their continued reading and feedback. After taking some of this feedback on board there will be a couple of small changes to the site in the coming weeks. Much of these changes will be in the form of new segments, some of which have been in the pipeline for a while, and also trying to right some wrongs.

Firstly Et Ceterbeer will remain, but will be reduced somewhat with people wanting a distinction between darker beers and lighter beers. Thats fine by me and so our new section "The Dark Side" has been launched. It will include all dark beer with the exception of Black IPA's (a.k.a. American Black Ale's) as they're a bit different.


The Dark Side - This segment is simply to help people find what they are looking for. Don't despair Et Ceterbeer fans, it will remain just minus the stouts, porters and other dark coloured beers.
Roadies - In honour of the road beer, this is basically going to be about microbrewery visits, beer events and travels. The segment will probably start this afternoon, with a visit I made this week. 
Mystery Segment - The concept for this segment was born a couple of months ago when Richo and I sampled a pretty amazing beer. Since then we have spent a heap of money and will be bringing this segment to you in the near future.

The other part of the next lot of posts will be righting some wrongs that loyal readers feel have been done. Aleksander and Nils of Sweden both think that I've been overly harsh on Swedish beer. Boys as I said at the time I wish there was better Swedish beer in Australia so I didn't have to drink Pistonhead. In positive news now there is! I haven't tried it yet but I've been assured it's better, so thats something to keep an eye out for.

There will also be a number of new, even weirder styles on the blog in the next few weeks. These include Braggot's and an Ancient Herbed Ale, exciting times ahead. So once again thank you all for your continued support and stay tuned for all these new segments and beers in the coming days. Keep the emails coming and....

Remember it's always Beer O'Clock somewhere in the world!
