As long term readers of The Crafty Pint will know, we try and keep things as light and breezy as we can. Where possible, we avoid getting too technical or nerdy (although there are those that argue the very fact it is a site about craft beer means it instantly qualifies as beer nerdy…) and look to create a site that creates excitement about the burgeoning craft beer world in a way that won’t turn off newcomers to better beer. If we sometimes get the daft nonsense to actual description ratio completely out of whack in our beer listings, so what? If it makes you chuckle and tells you a beer is out while leaving you none the wiser as to what the beer is, then we’re happy.


That said, there’s nothing wrong with a little knowledge to help drinkers understand a little more about the beers they are drinking, where they come from, why they taste like they do and so on. So today we’re kicking off a regular series of features looking at beer styles of the world. It’s an idea pitched by Crafty contributor Chris Brady (pictured above while being interviewed for this short film), a home-brewing Brit who’s been living in Australia half his life.


The series kicks off with a look at the Saison style, tying in nicely with the next Crafty Pint Blind Tasting Panel, which will be sampling various Aussie and international versions this Friday. You can find Chris’ piece here, but first we thought we’d find out a little about him and why he’s the man for the job (other than the fact he’s willing to do it for peanuts and an occasional hug…)



What is your relationship with beer?


Being English and a bit of a dork, I strongly feel that the brewing and drinking of beer is an intrinsic part of our cultural heritage. After a misspent youth of thoughtless swilling, the work of those beardy curmudgeons at CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale) eventually swayed me from the cheap and nasty lagers of my youth and I became fascinated with the wonderful world of English ale. Later on I began to discover, through esteemed beer writers such as Roger Protz, that the wider world was a beer drinker’s paradise filled with often exquisite ales and lagers.


Just by virtue of being human we all have an indelible relationship with beer as it is inextricably entwined with our prehistoric selves, when we made the leap from nomadic hunter-gatherer to sedentary farmer. Beer and brewing played a significant role in the development of early cultures from Ancient Egypt to Anglo Saxon England and beyond. Beer and brewing, despite what the fun police would have you believe, were part of what civilised us and coalesced our ancient, nomadic tribal existence into the rich cultural milieu that we are now so fortunate to have.
