Number 1: This tweet from Twatty Beer Doodles.
Number 2: Frozen Booze Radio 019 – The Price of Beer
A great listen from Frozen Summers about how much excise and retail add to the cost of a beer. I knew excise was a fair bit, but not quite this much. No way are government’s going to say “hey, lets stop charging excise on beer and give away that huge revenue stream”.
Number 3: What Are You Drinking – Pete Brown
Breweries are going the crowdfunding route to get stuff done, so why not beer writers? Pete Brown is giving it a crack. As a (much less well-known) beer writer, I’ve already pledged some bucks.
Number 4: CityLab – For Cleaner Water, Just Add Beer
Using wort to make dirty water clean? My Lord, is there anything beer can’t do? (yes, I know there are lots of things beer can’t do. It’s just an expression, sheesh).
Number 5: Beer Is Your Friend – Beer Olympics: Day One
In which I wrote about a beer from a different country for each day of the 2012 Olympics. And I started with one of my own homebrews to represent Australia.
Number 6: ….and it’s not beer but you’ll like it
