So here we are for round 2 of our blog series about the best beers produced in Australia in 2016. As a quick recap for those who didn't see the 1st edition, the idea behind this blog series is to contact all the amazing little craft breweries around Australia and ask them what beer they were most proud of producing in 2016.
Everyone has seen the yearly round-ups down by a public opinion poll but as we've said before for a beer to feature in them it already needs to have a wide distribution and be well known or it simply can't get the votes.
But what about all those amazing limited edition beers? What about the tiny breweries who are producing great brews but just don't have distribution away from their local area?
That is where this series comes in, let the brewers tell you what the best beer they produced last year was and whether you can still get your hands on some!
Sounds like a apt description to me as what was going to be a single beer on the way home quickly became 4 and counting...
Brad reckons that in 2017 he is going to treat us all to "an English/American pale that's hugely tasty!" and I for one can't wait.

So by now you’ve probably seen “cold drip” or “cold brew” coffee popping up in your local cafes. And now the latest craze of “nitro coffee” So what are they and why should you care?
We show you how to make your own cold brew coffee, nitro coffee and espresso martinis on TAP!
Launched in 2013 Tap King looked like being a decent option for people wanting to have beer on tap at home. After buying the plastic dispenser and a 3.2L disposable plastic bottles of a select range of beers you simply took them home, chilled them and then attached them to the dispenser to have beer on tap in the fridge.
On paper I'm sure their marketing team thought it sounded like a good idea. I don't know of a single beer drinker who wouldn't want "frosty cold, perfectly poured beer" on tap in their kitchen, bbq area or home bar.
We decided to do things a little differently with this list. We have approached breweries from around Australia and asked them what beer they were most proud of producing in 2016!
What we are hoping is to start a list of beers that the people who know best, the brewers, think we should try.
We will do this in a series of posts, each of which will have 5 breweries responses to our questions about their best beer of 2016 along with a couple of hints about what to expect from them in 2017.
So without further ado, presented in no particular order I give to you...
