GOOD BEER WEEK IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT
It might be officially over but that doesn't mean you can't still enjoy Good Beer Week Virtual Festival and all the great things you missed.
We've collated what's still available to watch and buy. Create your own Good Beer Week at home, with cooking classes, virtual tastings, industry discussions and even a wrestling match in a brewery.
Wolf of the Willows Cooking With Beer
Wolf of the Willows have two great Cooking with Beer Sessions, with recipes and videos. The first is how to make easy no-knead bread using its XPA, and the second is a beer-can chicken, also with the XPA.
Maybe combine the two for some amazing chicken sangas?
Beer Together has replays of comedy and cocktails. Damian Kos, from the 18th Amendment, in Geelong made a tequila cocktail using La Sirene Citra Sour.
Ian McNally (The Chosen Brew), teamed up with great Aussie comedians for a hilarious chat about the pub. And he and comedian Nick Capper presented "Have a Beer, Guess the Year", a brain teaser, that's perfect with a beer in hand.
AIBA: Isolation Edition

It features brewer interviews during a live ceremony. Not quite as formal as they usually are, but still a fantastic celebration of beer.
Last year's Moon Dog and Melbourne City Wrestling Brewery Brawl was one of the most talked about GBW events. , culminating in an epic match between Avery and Session Moth Martinez that you have to see to believe. Fortunately, you can! Plus, a little more tame, but no less entertaining was How You Brewin' with Karl and Macca. A lovely chat, featuring special guest, GBW co-founder Miro Bellini.
