Mark Chipperfield asks:
CAN THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN PUB BE SAVED?
You walk into a quaint-looking country pub. Inside there’s a handsome wooden bar, with a vase of fresh cut flowers at one end. “What’ll you have?” says the friendly barman, reaching for a glass so clean that it glitters in the later afternoon sunlight. “How about trying our local brew – they do a very nice pale ale?”
This story may sound like the ravings of cretin, but the pub is real (details later) and the beer was as good as the barman promised it would be. But this experience is, as most serious beer fanciers know, atypical in modern Australia.
