Beer Sucks - Ep 16 - Brendan O'Sullivan Of 3 Ravens Brewery
In this episode we catch up with one of our favourite human beings on the planet. Brendan O'Sullivan from 3 Ravens Brewery. We were an hour late to our meeting with Brendan and he still welcomed us in with more respect than we would deserve in normal circumstances. One of the pioneers of the Australian craft beer revolution, 3 Ravens has been knocking out quality craft beer since 2003. Lately they have been killing it with their sour series and dominating the juice wars. Now with a new CAW range to tie everything together, they have a solution for every situation. Kind of like Brendan. Let's just hope that he wasn't serious about a king of fizzy beer.

Beer Sucks - Ep 14 - Paul Holgate Of Holgate Brewhouse
The origin of Holgate Brewhouse dates back to 1999 after Paul and his wife had been on holiday in the U.S. and felt inspired to join the industry due to the small and independent nature of craft breweries that were in business for the love of their product. This sentiment resinated with Paul who had a love of baking, making jams and ginger beer and was intrigued by the nature of first principles production, before the advent of modern production technology. Their brewery took shape in their back yard, in Woodend, where they started selling beer while working and raising a family. Thankfully the couple invested heavily in tourism and hospitality when they took over a historic hotel and transformed it into Holgate’s! We got the chance to sit down with Paul and discuss government grants, independence and which is the best drunk food. I’ll give you a hint, it’s definitely not chicken dim sims.
