The Great Australian Beer Guide by James Smith [©Hardie-Grant]


Always wondered what the attraction is with craft beer? It seems each week there are more on the bottleshop shelf and more people around the country trying, and enjoying, the taste of craft beers. If you're new to the (not always) amber fluid and need some help getting started, James Smith is your man - he's written The Great Australian Beer Guide.

We have two copies of this excellent beer guide to be won.

James Smith has immersed himself (not literally) in the Australian craft beer industry since 2008 and over that period has seen the sector expand enormously. It's estimated that there were at least 51 new breweries opened in 2016 taking the total to over 300 currently operating. Add to that the ever changing range of beers being brewed and you can be faced with a conundrum when looking through the fridges at your local.

With this guide in hand you can start your craft beer tasting adventure whichever way you like. Pick beers by their style, ingredients, location, their label or quirky name – it doesn't matter as long as you enter your journey with an open mind. And an open copy of The Great Australian Beer Guide on hand too of course!

Discover the difference between a pale and a porter, a saison and a stout and why 'tripel' and 'dubbel' aren't typos! Along with interesting sections on Australian brewing history, how beer is made, food and beer matching and more, there are tasting notes for 150 of the best craft beers in Australia.

It's perfect for starting or expanding your craft beer repertoire so enter now for your chance to win one of two copies
