“Small batch” is one of those buzzphrases you hear a lot these days. You see it around so frequently. In fact, its meaning seems to have all but disappeared behind the shadow of marketing campaigns. Additionally, by large-scale operations that seem to defy “small batch” at its heart. In a time when everything seems mass-marketed and impersonal, Thorny Devil reclaims its notion. Granted that craft beers really benefit from being handcrafted and local. And—who’d have guessed?—small.

Thorny Devil offers best-crafted beer and cider Australia. True to its name, Thorny Devil is devilishly good. Thorny Devil is available in bars, restaurants, hotels, bottleshops and also on online.


Women of Beer

Women of Beer

It takes little more than a cursory glance around the room at an industry event to realise the beer world is rather dominated by males. Perhaps a quick game of “count the beards”. But, ever so slowly, that balance is being redressed. Nowadays, you’€™ll find an increasing number of women working both in front of and behind the scenes. Getting some of your favourite local beers from brewery to bottle to bar and beyond. Whether that means doing the physical brewing or having ownership in a company. Even hitting the road as brewery representatives or hosting educational events. Either organising festivals or running beer bars. And everything else in between, there’s a notable and welcome hint of the woman’€™s touch.

Helping lead the charge in ensuring this trend continues Down Under, Australia has an all-female brewing collective known, rather aptly, as the Women of Beer. It consists of a cast of characters from across the wider beer spectrum whose raison d’etre is to get together annually, brew a collaborative beer and use the occasion as an opportunity to raise the profile of women in the beer industry.


International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day

The IWCBD is a global initiative that involved assembling teams of women from the beer industry in various countries and doing much as our own Women of Beer have been doing: brewing a beer and helping make a bit of noise about the growing role of women in the industry. The idea was that each collective would follow the same recipe guideline to produce the same beer, albeit with slight changes allowing for a few local tweaks. That brief was to brew a 4 percent pale ale using Cascade hops.

With the Women of Beer not being afraid to dabble in different and somewhat bolder styles, a lightish pale ale wasn’t necessarily the next logical choice – notwithstanding the fact that they’€™d already been plotting the new recipe prior to getting involved with the IWCBD. So, having contacted the organisers to get the OK, it was agreed that the Women of Beer wouldn’t brew a pale ale but they would still follow the general guidelines, such as using Cascade hops. It was, in effect, the same cause but a slightly different beer. Well, perhaps a little more than slightly because what they’€™ve brewed is a Salted Caramel Ale.
