For those lazy weekend mornings when you just want to stay in bed and catch up on a little reading – Weekend Reading is a weekly (ahem, usually) post with the articles I’ve enjoyed in the past seven days.
All About Beer | The Rise (and the Return) of Craft Lagers
I think there’s a pretty significant call out for more delicious craft lagers and pilsners. I know in my often hop driven world sometimes there is nothing more I would like than a damn fine pilsner.
Incidentally I also would love to see more local Saisions and have them available in 330ml bottles. I’d really dig that.
Nikkei Asian Review | Japanese Craft Beer is Finding a Warm Welcome Away from Home
Hitachino Nest was one of the first beers I can remember putting on the bottle list at Five Bar when I was doing that sort of thing. The Hitachino Nest White Ale blew my mind and now I have a pretty decent craving for it as I write this.
An interesting look at Scottish beer and hype juggernauts BrewDog, whether you love or hate them, I think this is a good read.
Other beers have customers, but BrewDog has fans
The Sip | New brewers make mark on Monk
Brewer Craig Eulenstein left the Monk Craft Brewery last year to join Melbourne brewery Fury & Son, coming soon to the city’s western suburbs. The brewery is now in safe and well skilled hands of Mal Secourable and Rhys Lopez.

Independent | The UK’s Craft Brewery Revolution Has Only Just Begun
First I have to say that the Pride & Joy can pictured at the top of the article is just beautiful.
I’m looking forward to the start of Lost and Grounded Brewers by, in part, Alex Troncoso, coming later in the year. I was working as a rep for Little Creatures when Alex was running the brewery.
