Episode 3 - Show Notes 

For the second month in a row we are almost releasing the podcast episode on time! This is almost unheard of on Beer O'Clock Australia, as regular readers would be aware.

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're debuting two new segments - Scouting Report & a special tribute to one of the most important beers in the history of Australian craft beer. These segments are joined by our four "core" segments; News Items, What We're Drinking, Desert Island 6-Pack & Noz's Cellar. Please keep the feedback coming on what you like about the podcast, we're thoroughly enjoying doing it and tailoring it to what you guys like!
