The Beer Lovers Guide to Australia


Released August 16 2010, just in time for Fathers Day. Finally Dads get what they’ve always wanted for Fathers Day. No more socks and jocks, it’s a book about beer.

Australia has a rich and vibrant beer culture which goes mainly unrecognized. Most Australians would be surprised to learn that we have over 150 different Australian beer brands with an average of around 3 beers each. The Beer Lovers Guide to Australia is a snapshot of the Australian beer industry, showcasing those beers plus breweries and bars.

Australia’s relationship with beer started when the first fleet dropped anchor in Botany Bay in 1788: they drank mugs of Porter to celebrate the discovery of this great land. Since then it has been a colourful journey that is now poised for a renaissance of beer appreciation in the mainstream Australian culture. The Beer Lovers Guide to Australia is a guide for anyone looking to explore the world of Australian Beer.

A range of well respected Australian writers and beer connoisuers will guide you through the world of beer: Dr Peter Aldred - What is Beer; Andrew Perry - The History of Beer; Matt Kirkegaard - The Australian Craft Beer Revolution; Ian Watson - Tasting Beer; Paul Mercurio - Beer and Food and Laurie Strachan - A Menu of Beer Styles.

The Location Guide lists Australia’s most passionate beer venues state by state, making it the perfect way to plan your next beer adventure.

There’s never been a better time to drink Australian beer and there’s never been a more comprehensive guide to Australian beers, the people who make them and the best places to drink them.
