    Brewing great beer takes time and is considered artistry by brewers. Polishing the art and expanding for the future is made easier with fluidic controls and automation of your processes, enabling more time for craft brewing density and flavours, instead of stirring the mix. This is where Bürkert can assist. Burkert supports their Australian customers with single cable technology, for future-proofing their tomorrow. Now that's Smart.

    We thank Rallings Labels and Stickers for sponsoring this podcast. Brewers, if you are still applying self-adhesive labels to your bottles and cans, and believe that this is a sustainable solution for your packaging needs, you may want to call Rallings Labels, Stickers and Packaging and discuss your options with them. The team at Rallings will walk you through the various options available to you, that are more sustainable than applying self-adhesive labels which don't help the environment at all. Whilst they do produce self-adhesive labels for many breweries, there is a much better way to ensure that your carbon footprint is lower than what you are currently doing by utilising pre-sleeved cans.

    Paul Bowker - Brick Lane

    Paul Bowker - Brick Lane

    This week on Beer is a Conversation we talk the business of making beer as we catch up with Brick Lane's Paul Bowker.

    We last spoke with Paul, together with his head brewer Jon Seltin, back in November 2018, not long after the celebrity-backed brewery launched. Over the past three years it has grown drastically, both with its partner brands that it brews under contract, and its own Brick Lane brands.

    Recently the business announced a $50 million capital raise to fund further expansion, putting it in the same realm as Stone & Wood and Mighty Craft.

    For all of its growth and undeniable beer quality, Brick Lane's corporate feel has always left some engaged craft beer consumers feeling a little unengaged in the brand, and in this conversation I speak with Paul about growth, brand, engagement and the role and meaning of independence.

    Addressing Sexism - The Women's Panel

    Addressing Sexism - The Women's Panel

    The brewing industry internationally was faced with a crisis last month after stories about sexism, harassment and assault from women in the US industry went viral.

    Notch Brewing Co. production manager Brienne Allan shared stories from women all over the US, and it quickly spread here, prompting wider discussions in the Australian and New Zealand industries about diversity, inclusion and creating safe workplaces.

    Australian Brews News senior journalist Clare Burnett spoke to some prominent women in the Australian and New Zealand brewing industries, including Kylie Lethbridge, general manager of the IBA, Sabrina Kunz, executive director of the Brewers Guild of New Zealand, and Tiff Waldron, president of Pink Boots Society Australia, about the issue in the AU/NZ context, and what we as an industry can do about it.

    •Podcast with Brienne Allen of Notch Brewing in the US
    •Check out the Crack the Ceiling podcast with Tiff Waldron
    •IBA members can find resources in the Health and Wellbeing section of its website
    •Women in the industry can find out more about Pink Boots Australia, which aims to support and facilitate the education of women in the brewing industry, here.
    •The Brewers Guild of New Zealand has launched a resource page.

    Fiona and Ed Nolle - Dollar Bill Brewing

    Fiona and Ed Nolle - Dollar Bill Brewing

    This week is Dollar Bill Brewing as we're joined by Fiona and Ed Nolle who are just getting over taking out the Champion Beer trophy at the 2021 Australian International Beer Awards.

    As you'll hear, Dollar Bill is an ironic name for a businesses producing less than 15,000 litres a year, and taking up to two years to produce it. But you'll hear a fascinating chat with two people pursuing their passion despite the challenges of being small, maintaining jobs and a family alongside their small business and a fair few planning and development challenges thrown in as well. But you'll also hear two people who make you feel excited about the industry as they digest winning one of the highest industry accolades with humour and humility.

Boom is back, had to review.

Great podcast. From beer is a conversation to brews news week, the team will keep you up to date with all that’s happening in the industry of aussie craft beer.

Best bits are the below the fold long form excitable conversations and what’s happening with Broo

Damien 4051 ,

Entertaining and informative beer news every Friday!

Drinking good beer can only be improved by knowing what’s happening behind the scenes. I don’t work in the industry but find this podcast a really enjoyable way to hear the stories behind the beer. The presenters are down to earth, moderately opinionated, and only biased toward making the Australian beer industry the best it can be.

Boom.

CapitalBenji ,

Solid content
