Good Brews Week Episode 170

This week on Good Brews Week Pete and Matt are joined by Marie Claire Jarratt to dissect a very big week of beer news.

In a week that has seen excise concessions to brewers in the budget, medals won at the World Beer Cup and the launch of the Independent Brewers Association’s Independence Seal we look at the news, the reaction and discuss what it all means.

Marie Claire, or MC as she is better known, is a full-time craft beer enthusiast whose side hobbies include writing about beer, including her blog New South Ales and The Crafty Pint and completing her PhD in experimental quantum physics. For her writing MC won the very first Champion NSW Beer Writer Award in 2016.
