If days of the week were animals, then we all know Wednesday would be a camel. And according to a leading Australian liquor store, camels are thirsty! So it’s only fitting that on the day of the hump, Melburnians are too and throughout summer there’s a place in town that will be more than happy to quench your thirst.
Each drinker comes to the point when they realise buying warm alcohol off the shelf is a darn-sight cheaper then buying it cold. However, turning up to a party with a hot case is a rookie error and a sure-fire way of missing out on valuable drinking time. Thankfully though, geniuses from around the world have put their minds together and come with amazing ways to cool your drinks.
The great debate of craft beer vs. manufactured beer has raged on for the good part of four years or since One Fifty Lashes was released into the market in 2011. Once upon a time, pubs and bottle-os only stocked the great goodness of tins red, gold and blue and bottles with unique caps containing questions that will forever remain unanswered. Next came the lure of exotic imports and beers with a fourth ingredient.
Have you been seething with jealousy for the past few weeks as Instagram photos emerge from Munich’s Oktoberfest?

The founder of Asian Beer Online, Tim Brotherton, believes Japanese beers will make quite an impression with Aussie beer lovers, especially their latest brew Orion Premium Draft Beer. Dubbed as “the champagne of beers”, I spoke with Tim on his latest business venture.
There are many beers out there to choose from, but have you ever wanted to name one yourself? Even if it was simply just to brag about it? Well, The Australian Brewery may be able to make your dream come true.
As if celebrities don’t have enough money already, they have to find ways to keep making even more cash. They seem to have taken note from the movies and music videos they’ve been in from the blatant product placement in them (Man Of Steel‘s climatic showdown, anyone?), and figured they can use themselves to promote their own products. And what product will make them look cooler than any other? Booze, of course!
The boys at Red Island Brewing have done it again, bringing us their brand new brew, the India Pale Ale. Dubbing itself as “your new drinking wingman”, this smooth brew goes down a treat. There’s little of that pesky froth that us beer drinkers can’t stand that gets in the way of the actual beer (score!).
There are plenty of tipples to choose from when you hit the bar on a night out, but usually people have a preferred regular order set on
