Media Release

Media Release Media is dominated by media release these days, media releases that are generally marginally re-written to look like a real news story, given a writers's byline and published to look like independent news. Australian Brews News tries to independently report on news, though our resources do not allow this and we regularly publish releases supplied to us. We publish the media release in its entirety and hopefully this will let our readers be aware when what they are reading elsewhere is unedited spin. We often put our comment on these stories to give them some context in the current beer market, point out contradictory or meaningless content or just discuss the story but publish the media release whole. (Note to PRs, if your beer uses tap water, please don't describe it as coming from the 'purest sources' and if you claim it is set apart by "using only the finest water, barley, hops and yeast its country has to offer" please advise us which of the beers from the brewer's stable do not use the highest quality ingredients, just so we can provide this information to our readers by way of comparison.) Finally, we do not take money for publishing releases. Our pages are open to our few financial supporters, as well as anyone else with a beer-related product of interest to our readers.
