I’m off to Singapore later this week for a little getaway/work-related seminars. It should be interesting to see what the local beer scene is like. However, that’s why this week’s and next week’s posts may feel a little rushed. There simply aren’t enough hours in the day.
Update: A few weeks ago, I suggested that there was a new craft beer pub coming to South Bank in Brisbane. Turns out my speculation was correct: Lion are opening a James Squire brewhouse called “Squire on Grey” at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre. Still waiting for confirmation but, based on the rumours I’m hearing, the design program is quick, so construction could be underway by the end of the year.
