  1. Hey guys,

    Trying to update my website for Intl brewers (check link in my profile). Any info on the (lengthy) list below would be appreciated. Whether they bottle, export and if they have a best before/bottling date. These are the ones that haven't responded to my email requests.
    Much appreciated!

    If anybody else can help in this it would be cool.
    OP--- you will find besides the larger brewers most do not do a bottle date or a best before. Slowly getting there though.
    Note-----Mountain Goat does I think a best by date and does export a little bit to the US

    Some Murray's has a best before & some doesn't.

    the Murray's that is contract brewed does not have a best before date in the usual place, it is on the neck of the bottle instead. And I would stay away from their contract brewed stuff as it is terrible.
  7. Like to know where your email went ;)
  8. :confused:
    I`ve emailed or sent contact info to every brewery that bottles in Australia. Whether it gets to the right person or not is another thing but many breweries have responded and i`ve started to compile the info.
