Episode 2 - Show Notes 

Here at Beer O'Clock Australia we're not known for doing things in a particularly timely fashion. This time we were looking good, having recorded almost a month to the day after our first episode of the podcast. Life then got in the way and we ended up the best part of two weeks behind, as usual! Sorry if anyone has been hanging out for the second installment of this look at the, slightly dated, goings on in the Australian beer scene.

We're going to rotate some segments in and out, especially early on while we get into the swing of things - so if there is anything you love or hate, please let us know! The idea at the moment is that the podcast will be (roughly) monthly, and we'll try and keep that pretty regular - at least more so than I've kept the blog up to date recently... Basically every month we'll discuss some of the latest news from the beer world, we'll talk about some beers that we've been enjoying over the last month & we'll crack something interesting from my cellar.

This month we recorded on a brew day, so included the new segment "What Are We Brewing?". Let us know your thoughts if this is something you'd like to hear more of. We had a lot of news that we wanted to get through this month so kept it to just the core segments outside of the home brew that we kept mentioning as we ducked off to check it at various points throughout the day.
