June 6, 2012 by 250 Beers
Well, here it is. The first of my blog posts. Wednesday 6th June 2012. The first of many I hope!
This blog is dedicated to beer and those that love it. I hope you enjoy the read and I hope it broadens your horizons on the world of beer.
I’m in my mid-30’s now and I, like many beer drinkers, started out in the pub (at 16/17 years old) drinking lager. During the course of my 20’s I drank silly amounts of pathetic beer served at all sorts of establishments throughout London and Kent…and a dodgy stag weekend in Nottingham…oh, and a driving tour of Ireland and Scotland….hic!
As I started to ‘mature’, I realised that there is a HUGE world of beer out there to be explored. At the age of 32, I emigrated to Brisbane, Australia. I spent a year or so drifting from a carton of this to a carton of that trying to find a favourite and then it hit me. The craft beer explosion.
I jumped onto the bandwagon with open arms.
There are scores and scores of Australian ’boutique’ breweries that are doing something amazing. Daring to be different in a world of boring lager drinkers.
My arms are still flung wide open to this day and I’m firmly riding the bandwagon with no intention of getting off.
