About


SydneyBeer celebrates the Sydney craft beer scene and the community around it.

The aim of SydneyBeer is to share thoughtful beer writing and tell the stories of interesting people – the brewers, bottle shop owners, publicans and craft beer enthusiasts – who make craft beer what it is in Sydney.

Who’s behind SydneyBeer?

Tim Hodge - SydneyBeerSydneyBeer is run by me, Tim Hodge. It’s a labour of love.

I’m a beer lover, a wannabe home brewer and a writer.

I love Sydney and its communities, as well as the spirit that can be found in the craft beer scene.

Professionally, I work in web content. I do copywriting, social media and search engine optimisation.

You can follow me on Twitter, @timothyhodge or connect on Untappd.

Alternatively, contact me here.

Lofty aspirations

In time I hope that this can become a platform for making connections, sparking collaborations and maybe even fostering a new community of beer lovers.

Personally, I have a great interest in the beer industry and how it’s evolving. If I can play a very small part in that, that’s great.

Share the craft beer journey

There is no snobbery here. Plenty of geekiness, but no snobbery.

You will find reviews of beers here but please go and try them yourself. There will rarely be bad reviews, it’s more in keeping with craft culture to forgive mistakes and celebrate success.

Please, share your stories and experiences.
