    I've recently discovered the joys of beer tasting - i grew up on bland Aussie beers (back in the dark pre-craft days), so you can imagine my shock when sampling local beers during my travels through england, belgium and germany. Since returning home, I've discovered that the craft scene is taking off in Oz, and I decided on two things:
    1. try to reach 1001 different beers. GOOD beers (i.e. exclude fake euro and adjunct lagers)
    2. try to convince my beer loving friends and family that some beers are worth the extra buck, and change their mentality from 'drinking for effect' to 'drinking to taste'

    Glad to say that I'm making good progress on both fronts...My wife has even started joining me! (living on Mars would have seemed more realistic four years ago!)
