The Australian Beer Industry (ABI) has announced a series of updates to its beer guide, and the key takeaway is that Australians can now take a better look at Australian craft beer.
Here’s what you need to know.
Read moreThe Australian Beer Branding Council (ABBC) has also updated its guide, which was launched in December last year, with new information on the history and origins of Australian craft beers.
“Craft beer is part of the Australian food chain, a cornerstone of the national economy and a cornerstone for our economy,” ABBC chief executive officer Brian Tannock said in a statement.
“We look forward to continuing to improve our guide to help Australians understand our diverse range of beers.”
A good beer guide for the novice?
A beer guide is an important guide for anyone who wants to know more about beer.
“The best way to make a good beer is to drink as much of it as you can, then ask yourself: ‘What can I get out of this?'”
ABBC’s Tannocks said.
“You don’t need to be a brewer or even a beer connoisseur.
This is the best way for anyone to understand what’s good and what’s not.
You don’t have to be an expert in the field to be able to tell a good story about a good brew.”ABB’s guide is based on the research from the Australian Institute of Food and Drink researchers, who published the research on the Australian craft brewing landscape in the Journal of Beer Research in April.ABBC’s craft beer guide includes: a history of Australian beer, including how Australian breweries got their start and the beer that made them famous, as well as a look at the origins of beer, and how it evolved to today’s craft beers, as a guide to the history of craft beer in Australia and the wider world.
There’s also a chapter on Australian craft brewers, who include local, regional and international brewers from around Australia.ABB says the craft beer section of the guide will be updated to reflect the new research, and will also include a chapter for Australian craft cider makers, who use local and regional ingredients to produce cider.
“As we develop our guide, we’re looking at ways to include more of the local and local-based beers we all know and love, and we want to be sure that our guide reflects that,” Tannocker said.
The craft beer part of ABBC is a little tricky.
“If we’re doing it for the first time in our guide that’s a really important thing,” Tamp said.
“We don’t want people to be left out.
We want to make sure that people understand what we’re trying to do and that we’re getting to the heart of the beer.
It’s a pretty simple thing.”ABBC has been working with the Australian Wine and Spirit Council and other stakeholders to make the guide more accessible, including an interactive interactive map that highlights the beer and cider categories and their associated breweries.”
It’s a very useful resource, particularly when you’re new to the beer world, and when you know how to pick up a beer, but you don’t know where to start,” Tamm said.
You might be wondering what you should do if you’re interested in beer but don’t think you know much about the craft brewing industry.
“There’s an excellent beer and wine guide for new beer drinkers, but there’s a good guide for beer drinkers who have no knowledge of the craft, so it’s really important to learn about what is out there,” Tamin said.ABT’s beer guide has been updated to better reflect what it has learnt from research.
“It’s not a complete guide, but it is a good start,” ABT’s Tamp told ABC Radio Melbourne.”ABT is keen to make it easier for new Australians to get the knowledge they need to make informed choices about what they’re drinking.”
The Australian Craft Brewers Association (ACBA) says the ABB craft beer information is helpful and useful, but they do have an issue with the ABBC craft beer link.
“In the United States, it’s the largest brewer in the US, and they’re doing well, so what they need is the information that they’re getting,” ACBA president and chief executive director Greg Brown said.
While the ABC craft beer links are great for craft beer drinkers in Australia, ACBA’s Brown said that the ACBA is concerned that the ABQ craft beer pages may be missing important information about craft beer and the industry.
“This is something that we would expect to be addressed by the craft brewers themselves,” Brown said of the ACBC craft links.ABBA’s Tamm says that he is hopeful that the craft information can be addressed in the ABMB’s beer guides.
“There’s some really good research, a good research team and they’ve got some really important information in there,” he said.
