Ale of a Time

Beer and beer related things

About

Beer. That’s what this is about. It’s a wonderful thing and while I initially began this site as a university project, I soon realised there was far more to beer than a handful of big companies serving similar tasting sweet lagers. Now I’ve dropped out of uni (don’t worry, I was studying in my spare time), homebrew and spend most of my free time thinking, talking and drinking beer.

I try and make this site accessable to both new beer lovers and those that know their Flanders reds from their Brooklyn Browns.  It’s also fairly obvious if you read through my reviews that I have been learning as I go and what my earlier reviews lack in knowledge, they make up for in slight drunkenness.

This site has slowly evolved from being all reviews to including commentary, brewery visits, bar visits and interviews.

If you have come here from a search looking for specific information and haven’t found it, please leave a comment. It’s annoying when I get search hits for “where can I buy x beer in Melbourne” or something else that I know isn’t actually on the site, but I know I can help.

Anyhoo, love getting comments and tweets about the site or the beers. Even if you think I’m a dickhead and that I’m completely wrong, I would love to hear about it.

If you want to contact me regarding something on my site, or beer or whatever try luke[at]aleofatime.com.

Cheers!
