After their unplanned hiatus, Pete and Matt are back, this week chatting with the guys behind beer-powered fundraiser Brewmanity and also the team at Sydney’s Batch Brewing.

Retired footballer David Neitz and teamed up with Melbourne beer identity Barney Matthews to create Brewmanity and see what would happen if you imagined that a portion of every beer we ever drank contributed to doing some good in the world…

We also speak with Andrew Fineran and Chris Sidwa, the boys behind Sydney’s Batch Brewing. We talk about their philosphy, the local market and why sometimes drinking beers from jam jars is a necessary evil…but good glass is always better.

Don’t forget to send us your feedback, or leave a voice mail by calling (07) 3040 1508, that we’ll play on our next show.

Radio Brews News is hosted by Matt Kirkegaard and Pete Mitcham and is produced by Lachie Mackintosh.

    Hi Guys, Glad to hear a new ep. Glass is something I’ve been raging about for a while now. It seems everyone is either oblivious to the law or just ignoring it. ALL tap beer MUST be poured into a stamped measured glass. A bar can cop some hefty fines from weight and measures if you are pouring into non approved glassware. This includes jam jars- fancy “IPA” glasses, or almost every stemmed glass available through any wholesaler in aus. Its all well and good to say that good beer should be served in a good glass, I totally agree with that. I know however the reason I have stuck with the traditional schooner & Pint glass in my bar is because in over a year of looking I am yet to find a company that makes a better glass that is stamped. And don’t even get me started on the illegalities of growler fills. FYI here is a fact sheet that specifical mentions mason jars…. http://www.measurement.gov.au/TradeMeasurement/Business/Documents/SaleBeer.pdf

    P.S. If anyone can show me where to buy a better glass-feel free!

      Thanks for the feedback Simon! I believe SAHM are now in Australia with great pub friendly glasses that can be officially stamped. I will put them n touch if you like?
