We can’t believe it was a year ago that Pale Lager slipped into The Weekend Australian’s Top 20 Beers, and now our Draught Ale has made the cut in this years list. Each year long time suds scribe Peter Lalor pulls together a list of his Top 20 beers to sit alongside James Halliday’s Top 100 wines. We are stoked that both of our beers have been in such great company over last two years since we started brewing in Byron Bay in November 2008.
There were beers from seventeen different breweries in this year’s list which is up from last year when brews from just eleven breweries featured. Based on those numbers it looks like there is a growing number of brewers out there brewing a wider range of good craft beers.
Whilst it’s great that there are more and more good beers being brewed by more and more breweries, we really have to thank the growing number of pub / bar operators and retailers (both big and small) out there who are really making it all worth while by supporting the craft brewers and showcasing good beer to the ever-swelling number of beer drinkers who have a thirst for and appreciation of good beer.
As we said last year … we’ll keep focussing on brewing good beer as long as you keep drinking it …deal?
