When All About Beer Podcast co-host Em Sauter was in Australia in 2019, she was exposed to the Pacific ale, a style of beer that was refreshing, sessionable, and something she was surprised was only limited to Australia. Five years later, Em is still surprised that this beer style (which has only grown in popularity in its native country) is still not really well known to people outside of Australia.

She hopes this episode will help educate more people about this excellent beer style. On this episode Em and Don Tse chat with two Australians.  First, Briony Liebich, who is an Australian beer educator and sensory professional about the flavors and aromas of this style. Then Caolan Vaughan, Head Brewer at Stone and Wood Brewing Co., who invented the beer style.
