BEER | VENUES | WINE

BEER | VENUES | WINE

Still relatively baby-faced, I was lucky enough that when I turned 18 in 2016, Adelaide’s bar scene was vibrant and the craft beer environment was thriving. I’ve three older brothers, and, for whatever reason, my year 9 self listened intently when they spoke of these crazy new things called small bars opening in the form of Proof and Clever Little Tailor. As a result, by the time I could venture into bars and pubs, those were the kind of places I went.

I’m fortunate not to have spent my early drinking years consuming crap beer and shitty, cheap wine. Or am I? Perhaps those years are crucial to one’s journey towards drinking better alcohol. Perhaps I’m now snobby and my standards are unrealistically high? Either way, for better or for worse, that’s what happened. I got swept up with the latest trends and movements, probably younger than most, and haven’t looked back. I tell myself it’s a good thing – by the time I’m as old as my dad is now, I’ll have tried hundreds of more beers than he has, in countless different styles too. Having said that, Southwark stout is possibly both of our favourite beers.

Working in small bars and restaurants has also helped me on my way, and I’ve learnt a lot about beer, wine and spirits. I’ve a particular penchant for dark beers and natural wine, and I love prompting people to trying new things. I firmly believe that we have so many options for people here in SA to drink better booze, and I’m happy to help in any way I can to get us there.
