This week we visit a relatively new brewpub in Richmond called Burnley Brewing. They've got years of hospo experience and a German-trained brewer. It's also the first outing of some new gear courtesy of our Patreon supporters, and some new audio editing software. We'd love to know if it's better or worse than usual.

This week we are joined by Chris from Mr Banks Brewing. We talk about lots of great beer stuff, and get the skinny on his new Brut IPA and his overall thoughts on the style. Also, we learn about his past as a bass player in a hardcore band, and talk a little bit about Lionel Richie. What a show!

Slight changeup with a special episode recorded from Good Beer Week Cryer Malt Trade Hub. Luke is joined by Zoe Ottaway, Simon Bent and Damian Kelly and they talk all things labels and marketing. It's a good chat, perfect for anyone wanting to learn more about the ins and outs of beer design.

We welcome celebrated journalist, author, and beer judge, Melissa Cole - all the way from ol' Blighty. Thanks to Catfish, we had the chance to sit down and talk with her in front of a wonderfully live audience (they were all so live) and get into some pretty... interesting... topics. Come for her unique insight into the world of beer, stay for the anecdote at the end. Trust me.

After some of our usual, sparkling, banter, we chat to Grant Wearin - from Modus Operandi. His brewery is making a bit of a push into Melbourne and we hear all about its plans, the future and get Grant's take on the current state of beer.

Welcome back to GABS for 2018, where the beers are full of lactose and vanilla, and the stages aren't on top of the containers anymore. We don't actually discuss either of those things, but we do have a host of rad guests so it more than makes up for it.

This week, a little late due to eyesight issues, we talk all about Stone & Wood and then a little about branding. It's full of hot takes.

We are really excited to share our chat with Artisan Brewing out of WA. It's a good one, and I'm not saying that just because Dave wasn't there haha or am I?

This week, a shorter episode, but no less great than usual. We pay a visit to Inner North Brewing in Brunswick, Melbourne. It's a new spot, with a small footprint, down and alleyway. Melbourne aye ef.

This week we sit with a Guinness ambassador and ask him all about two part pours, marketing, extract, and more. Do we get all the answers we need? Not quite... but mostly yeah. It's a great chat and we walk away with a new appreciation for the ol' black.
