This week we catch up with Matt Hogan from Hope Brewhouse in the Hunter Valley.
Matt surprised the entire brewing community, and himself, when his brewery was named Champion Small Brewery at the recent Australian Craft Beer Awards.
Then Pete catches up with Brendan Parnell and Scott Overdorf from Hobart Brewing Company. Hobart Brewing Company opened earlier this year and is adding to the Tasmania capital’s vibrat beer culture.
During the pre-ramble we mention Dr Brett Stubbs’ new book Bygone Breweries of New South Wales: The Hunter River District published by Tankard books and available here.
