    Well...the ANZUS region may not have been the first to truly embrace and develop craft beer, but it's the first to use really inherently dodgy search marketing to exploit its (potential) customers

    For the uninitiated, this site never carried any of those beers, their pages are mere googlebait

    Pity, as I quite liked beercellar otherwise

    So yer, inherent to this discussion is has Australia (New Zealand) embraced cynical commercialism before actually learning how to brew a decent beer? I would argue it has. We are world class at manipulating those google results but the wort itself is still a problem for us.
