Perth

2018

It has been over 30 years since I last visited Perth, far too long between drinks I now realise. Needless to say the skyline of the city has changed in that time quite considerably and the resources boom is quite evident with many of the mining companies having the tallest buildings in the city.

Brewfest Out West 2016 (By Jules Gerrard)

2016/03/07

The inaugural Brew Fest in Auckland started in 2014 and with much sadness we said goodbye to this much loved festival as the grounds have just been sold. This small intimate brew fest is perfect for getting together with other like-minded craft beer drinkers. Big enough to have some great variety yet small enough not to have the masses there getting drunk.

Granville Island Brewery Review, Canada (Reviewed by Kyle Cameron)

2016/01/13

Over the false river from downtown Vancouver, Granville Island brewery is a tasting room come eatery with a store attached to the side of it. It has a cool local market atmosphere and I would recommend anyone staying in Van to go check out Granville Island in general, it really is a cool little place full of markets, little restaurants, liquor store, several shops to wander around and all in a tight little area. All just 5 mins bus from downtown.

Located in an industrial area in Anaheim is a little gem. This brewery makes a range of good beers. 12 on tap and a variety that will mean every taste is catered for. To say they experiment is an understatement, these guys are The Garage Project of Anaheim.
