Meet Crafty’s Agony Aunt

Meet Crafty’s Agony Aunt

Thorny Devil, one of Australia’s most awarded craft beers, is available online, at bottle shops or in your local pub, club or restaurant: if not, ask us and we will organise all.



One of the defining features of the Australian craft beer world – and one of its finest attributes – is its all encompassing warm embrace. As highlighted by the seemingly unstoppable run of collaborations, brewers just love to open their doors and hearts to beer drinkers so they can share in their passion for the good stuff. Bars, bottleshops, beer events and festivals offer opportunities for those who brew, sell and enjoy craft beer to come together as one. And, here at The Crafty Pint, we do our best to unite all facets of the Aussie beer world too.


As such, we’re always looking for ways to promote dialogue between punters and brewers and a few months back got chatting to Jayne Lewis, one half of Two Birds Brewing, about this very thing. The conversation led to the idea of introducing a regular spot on the site where our readers could pose questions of a beer or brewing nature to a brewer who could then respond in kind.


And now that idea has become reality, with today seeing the launch of Ask Brewer Jayne, a regular feature on the site that will see Jayne become, effectively, the Australian craft beer world’s Agony Aunt. You can send in any queries you might have about beer, brewing and the wider beer world: how does someone get into brewing, what’s it like being a woman in the beer world, contract vs owning your own brewery, queries on beer styles, the strong link between nail art and brewing, what’s the correct pronunciation of Taco, or anything else you can think of – as long as it is beer related. Jayne will then delve into the beer encyclopaedia that is her brain and respond accordingly.


We’re pretty certain she’s an ideal candidate for the role – and not just because she’s female and thus can be an aunt. As well as brewing and making cider at the likes of Little Creatures, Mountain Goat and Two Birds, she has worked in the wine industry, is a judge at many prominent beer competitions around the world, is on the board of the Craft Beer Industry Association and president of the Pink Boots Society of Australia and, perhaps most importantly, spends a huge amount of time talking beer in the company of punters at beer events and festivals from coast to coast.
