Just before Christmas we held our annual awards show, recorded with a live audience, at Slowbeer in Melbourne. The awards are unlike regular awards which are boringly decided before the announcement. We think it’s more exciting to nominate our favourites, invite guests, and then debate it. Adding a live audience made it even more confusing, and a lot of fun.
You can find the winners below, but you really need to listen to find out how we got there. Shout out to the audience for playing a long, getting involved and having their say.
We also announced an addition to the Ale of a Time podcast in a separate episode launched on Christmas day. Tiff Waldron and Lindsy Greig join the team and will be hosting their own podcasts on the AoaT feed. Both have worked in the industry as sales, marketing (Tiff) and brewing (Lindsy) and both are certified Cicerones. Finally, some qualifications on aleofatime dot com. Content from them is coming soon.
Check out both episodes – and scroll down for our 2019 winners.
