Hipster Granny


June 20, 2013 by 250 Beers

I’m blessed with knowing a few decent photographers. I’m not one of them. However, I take a photo of almost every unique beer that I drink. Most, if not all, make their way onto Instagram and Facebook.

I’m also blessed with a lovely wife. She often (tries to) put me in my place. One of her best traits (aside from her amazing taste in men) is her honesty.

We rarely travel in to Brisbane to work at the same time due to two things; our two kids. Today was different. She went in a bit later than usual and we did the hour-long train journey together.

As we approached the escalator on the platform at Brisbane’s Central train station, I saw an elderly lady walking towards us from the opposite direction. Sensing that we were going to get to the foot of the escalator at the same time, I slowed and let the lady step on first.

A true gent is what you’re thinking right? Kind of.

I turned to my wife and said “Shit! The old girl is wearing a can of Evil Twin Brewing’s Hipster Ale!”

My wife’s honesty prevailed and she responded with “All you think about is beer!”


We kissed goodbye and I followed the lady for the chance of a photograph. She stopped by an elevator while I took the steps. I feel so guilty saying this…I got to the top first and I waited for her. I also waited for her to pass me and so I pretended to take a call on my mobile phone in case she recognised me from the escalator three minutes prior.

I then got my reward and snapped this photo:

Like I said above, most of my beer related photography is exposed on Instagram and Facebook. Rarely do they appear as a blog post subject but this one is priceless enough to share!
