BEER O'CLOCK PODCAST - EPISODE 5

Episode 5 - Show Notes 

It had to happen eventually... I'm actually quite surprised that it took the Christmas period for the inevitable to happen. Dylan & I did fall a little behind due to various engagements throughout December, so I do apologize if anyone was hanging out for their Beer O'Clock Australia Podcast fix! It's a good thing we always preface the new segment with "out-dated"! There's a lot of really good stuff in this podcast, that we hope you'll all enjoy!

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 show was recorded way back at the end of November, so some of the news is a little more out-dated than usual. Also in this episode; I checked out Beer 360, we discuss another great Beer Deluxe event & talk about some home brewing techniques. We discuss a range of under appreciated styles in the Desert Island 6-Pack & get our first look inside Dylan's cellar. It's a big episode so buckle in!
