Episode 4 - Show Notes 

In an almost unbelievable turn of events, Dylan & I have got the podcast up on time again! As regular readers would be aware punctuality and deadlines aren't exactly a strong suit at Beer O'Clock Australia.

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.

We recorded this episode not that long after the last one, so the news segment was a little shorter than in some previous episodes. Despite that we ran well over time - as we got sidetracked a couple of times. There were no new segments this month but we did manage to fit a lot into the episode. Hope you enjoy it guys!
