The Good Beer Co

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch of something pretty cool, The Good Beer Co. What is The Good Beer Co you ask? Well, it's Australia’s first social enterprise beer company. What does that mean? It means they'll be getting some awesome beers brewed for really good causes. The first of those causes is the Great Barrier Reef.

Partnered with Bargara Brewing Company and Australian Maritime Conservation Society they'll be brewing the Great Barrier Beer. Unsure what style it will be just yet, but that was a part of the launch. We were given voting bottle caps and had to pick between two styles. The one that appealed the most to me was the white IPA, so it got my vote. After some more research I've learned the IPA got the nod, kick ass!

We also got to put or tokens forward to help select the label for the bottle, all three looked pretty sweet, will be interesting to see what is selected.

On the night I also got to try Bargara Brewing's Thirsty Turtle, a crisp and refreshing bright lager than went down a treat. If the Barrier Reef Beer is just as good I can see this being a success.

As you can see the lighting wasn't very good for smart phone photos.

Thanks again to James for the invite, I'm looking forward to seeing how this goes, and raising a beer to the Reef.
