Pete Mitcham

Pete Mitcham Pete Mitcham, aka Prof Pilsner, is well known to anyone involved in the craft beer scene in Australia as the Editor In Chief of The Critics’ Choice – Australia’s Best Beers and as a contributor to The Beer Lovers Guide to Australia. He is also the host of beer dinners and tastings through his company, Beer Blokes. He is co-editor of Australian Brews News and, with Editor Matt Kirkegaard hosts Radio Brews News, Australia’s leading beer Podcast series and available through iTunes. To the rest of us, Pete is just a great bloke with a passion for good beer. His writing leans towards the social and cultural aspects of beer and drinking in Australia rather than straight reviews because, as he says, beer is such a subjective thing and taste and perception of flavour is a very personal thing. All the same, he is an unashamed advocate of the Australian craft beer scene who gets great joy from seeing someone genuinely surprised at how much they enjoy a beer that he has suggested. Never one to take himself or his beer too seriously Pete likes nothing more to share with anyone who’ll listen the stories and traditions and myths behind Australia’s favourite beverage.
