Mike loves to share good beer with good people and writes about it at Craft Beer House. He completed his first marathon last year and is still buzzing over the West Coast Eagles Grand Final win.
The beer(s) or moment(s) that turned you on to good beer:
I moved to London with my wife in 2008 and I feel like this was a turning point for me as I traveled around Europe and tried many different beers. One experience in particular was staying with friends in Tilburg (Netherlands); they took me to a Trappist brewery. Somehow, we managed to ride our bikes home after trying some very strong, flavoursome beers.
On returning to Australia, I started to seek out local craft beer and started my Craft Beer House online blog.
You've got three beers to turn someone else on to good beer; what are they and why?
The last beer you enjoyed (at time of writing):
South Fremantle Brewing Co’s first can release, the Saltbush & Pepperberry Pilsner. A very interesting beer.
Three things that represent you:
Homestead Brewery have been pouring beers for thousands of visitors who pass through the home it shares with Mandoon Estate since 2014. As they look to expand across Perth, we caught up with their head brewer.
