Thorny Devil wants you to live and learn all about craft beer: so we give you all the craft beer news = globally; hope the following article helps you understand more about craft beer:




There are quite a few breweries in the South West with trophy cabinets that have recently become a lot more crowded. Collectively, South West breweries took a total of 29 medals at this year’s Perth Royal Beer Show and earlier this month Colonial Brewing and Cheeky Monkey Brewery & Cidery, both located in Margaret River, were joint winners in the Boutique Brewery category at the AHA-Aon Hotel and Hospitality Awards for Excellence.


What’s more, Cowaramup, just outside of Margaret River, can now lay claim to being the home to the country’s best “beertender” after bar manager Ross Terlick picked up the title at this year’s Beer and Brewer awards. He beat more than 40 nominations for beer loving bartenders from around Australia, accepting his award at the magazine’s fifth birthday dinner at the Sail & Anchor.


It turns out that Ross’s nomination for Beertender of the Year came as something of a surprise, only discovered when stumbled across a list of nominees on Beer and Brewer’s Facebook page.


“I was talking to one of the regulars here [about the nomination],“ says Ross. “And she said, ‘Oh yeah, it was me, I’d had a few glasses of wine and went through and nominated everyone I knew!’ Didn’t I feel special…!”


He laughs about it now, but the nomination got the ball rolling and within days he had completed the requisite theory questions, progressed to a phone interview and then was told he had won.


Ross started bartending while living in the UK but then swapped aprons for overalls to become a plumber for six years. He returned to bartending when he arrived at Cowaramup two and a half years ago. “I was a good plumber but I’m a better bartender,” he happily concedes.


While he enjoyed real ales during his time in the UK, it wasn’t until he arrived at Cowaramup Brewing that he delved deeply into the world of craft beer.


“I’ve got so much more to learn and I’m actually excited about that, I enjoy it”, he says, and it’s his thirst for beer knowledge and for craft beer in general that makes it easy to see how Ross was awarded his title. His passion is infectious too, evident by the way the guys at the brewery greet and engage everyone who walks through the door. Ross strongly believes it should be the sort of place where you can have your beer questions answered by someone who is genuinely passionate about craft beer. By no means is he saying they have all the answers, however. If he doesn’t know, he’ll ask head brewer, Jeremy Good, and failing that…
