This week we catch up with Vincent Ruiu, General Manager, Global and Craft Brands, from Carlton and United Breweries to break the news that Crown Lager will be available on tap from 3 September.
Of course, we couldn’t let the chance to speak with Vincent pass without getting an update on the history of Crown Lager and Matt continues to flog the horse that is the fifth ingredient. [Update: When Vincent says he will never tell Matt how long Crown Lager is lagered for, maybe that’s just something else that the new SABMiller masters will change. They don’t seem to have any problems discussing lagering times, at least when there’s something to actually brag about. Of course, making exaggerated claims about your ‘lagering’ times and refusing to provide details about it is nothing new in the world of arriviste beer.]
We also get a little insight into the future of CUB’s Matilda Bay and Cascade brands…
