BEER O'CLOCK PODCAST - EPISODE 11

Episode 11 - Show Notes 

It was inevitable, but we finally fell off the wagon and missed a month. So naturally we missed two & a half... In any case we're back with a big show for you! A few changes to note - we now have a Facebook page where you can interact with us & get timelier answers than via email. We also, at the behest of Apple Podcasts, are now having to give our episodes names; so if you have any ideas on how we should name them we'd love to hear the feedback.

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 discuss we discuss beer news both recent & quite a bit older, due to our longer than usual break. We attempt to slot beers from the Philippines, Argentina & Jamaica into our Ranking of Lagers, before talking about some of the reasons why there was such a long break between podcast episodes including my trip to Hawaii & our respective trips to the Victorian High Country. As usual we hope you enjoy the show!

There we have it for another episode of the Beer O'Clock Australia Podcast. As usual you can hit me up at gus.norris7@gmail.com or at our new Facebook page, if you have any questions or feedback.

Until next time...

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