Good Brews Week Episode 177

This week’s episode was recorded at BrewCon 2018 and we were lucky to catch up in person with, now regular guest, Zoe Ottaway.

  • We chat about the evolution of BrewCon from its early days at the Melbourne Lithuanian Club to the expansive event in Sydney this year.
  • We discuss Brut IPAs and Matt’s suggestion that it represents a blurring of ideas of ‘craft’ and ‘industrial’
  • Consumer feedback and perception post brewery buyout
  • The perceptions of beer in cans versus bottles and whether can can have a negative effect in some circumstances
  • Kim Jordan’s keynote at BrewCon

You can find Zoe at Totem Marketing.
