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:


They’ve already hosted home brewing legends from the States, held a series of sold out, high quality dinners, and helped set hundreds of Aussie home brewers on the path to brewing better beer. But for the people behind the Australian National Homebrewing Conference, that simply isn’t enough. Not nearly enough. So, as they return for their third run, expect more of everything: brewing legends, seminars, entertainment, new beers… So much more, in fact, that it’s little wonder this year’s conference is tagged “Tripel Strength”.


Among the big names coming to Melbourne at the end of October are Beer Here’s Christian Skovdal Andersen, who called in to Australia earlier in the year and left behind a few collaborative beers to tide beer lovers over, Stu McKinlay of Kiwi brewers The Yeastie Boys, Matt Brynildson of top US brewery Firestone Walker, and rising home brewing guru Kai Troester. Add in John Palmer, author of How To Brew, Brendan Varis, from reigning Champion Large Australian Brewery Feral, talking about his barrel-aging program, Chris Badenoch from Josie Bones talking sausages, plus the return of the System Wars home brew systems face-off, and talks ranging from the uber-technical to the lighthearted and you’ve got one heck of a busy weekend lined up. This year, the popular System Wars smack down is being tied together with popular home-brewing podcast Basic Brewing Radio and Brew Your Own magazine as a part of their ongoing series of collaborative experiments.

“The screaming success of the first two conferences gave us the confidence and resources to go for broke with ANHC 3 and the result is essentially a case of bigger, better and more,” says conference co-founder Andy Davison. “Each conference, the ANHC pays to bring in keynote presenters from the international home-brewing scene, [and] this year we’ve doubled the quota from two to four international keynotes. Past conferences have tended to look mostly to the massive home-brewing scene in the US for presenters; this year we made an effort to deliberately target presenters from other parts of the world, too.

“A shift from strictly “home-brewing” personalities has allowed us to dip into the red hot brewing scenes of Scandinavia and New Zealand with Christian Skovdal Anderson from Beer Here and Stu McKinlay of Yeastie Boys, whilst still tapping the incredible pool of US talent for the likes of Firestone Walker’s Matt Brynildson and ascendant home-brewing guru Kai Troester.

“The success of the previous conferences has also attracted an increased representation from presenters who have a commercial interest to represent. We’ll see conference favourites Chris White of Whitelabs Yeast, John Herskovits from 5 Star Chemicals and Jess Caudill of Wyeast back for another round, with return visits from past conference presenter John Palmer and a special video link up with home-brewing god and Heretic Brewing owner/brewer Jamil Zainasheff (pictured above right at the last conference).”

Of course, it’s all well and good bringing big names to town and lining up a jam-packed schedule of top class events. But a conference that is, essentially, about beer isn’t going to be much of a conference without beer at its heart. Thankfully, this is more than covered. According to the organisers, a number of their guests are bringing beer, some that isn’t available in Australia and that may never be available in Australia again, as well as exclusive beers that are being brewed especially for the conference by brewers big and small. In total, there will be 43 craft beers on tap throughout the weekend.
