There was a hair of the dog to start the Year of the Pig with some interviews and segments that Reg Parsley hadn't put down on podcast tracks in 2018. What a slacker!
So we're recapping before kicking off 2019 with a new series of episodes on WA beer - and some on our cousins interstate.
In this edition we touch base with Ben Joseph from Beerfarm, take a look at a Coopers seasonal and also celebrate some birthdays for Feral and Matilda Bay breweries.
And we also get some callers who discuss some of their brews views for the past year.

It is nearing the end of the year so it is time to reflect on the great WA beers produced during the past 12 months.
So as the true independent podcast looking at brewing from a west coast perspective we've enlisted Ross Lewis and Reg Parsley to come up with their best half-dozen WA beers to debut during the Chinese Year of the Dog.
There was an interesting blend about the list with three emanating from the city and the rest coming from the South West. The Sip team would have been happy to taste the Sandgroper Sixpack during any session this year.

The Sip Beer Laboratory podcast ends its long hiatus by diving into the hot topic of independence. We throw the question of beer ownership open to the 6PR Morning Show listeners.
And then we lure Gage Roads chief operating officer Aaron Heary into the studio talk about the brewery getting its beer into Optus Stadium and how the Myaree operation is quickly developing.

It is a remote location for a brewery but Froth Craft Beer has found a good home in the northern WA town of Exmouth.
In the latest episode we catch up with one of Froth's co-founders and head brewer, Tyler Little, about how a beer operation can not only survive but thrive in a small municipality. And Tyler reveals how Froth gets its beers around the State considering the hundreds, if not thousands, of miles distance between towns.
Froth is also the latest member of the Western Australian Brewers Association.

It has been a tough road to the top of Australian brewing for John Stallwood. After 18 years in the game Stallwood is enjoying a strong run of success with major gongs at the World Beer Cup and Australian International Beer Awards.
The Nail boss joins The Sip and Gareth Parker in the 6PR studios to tell his story.
Also, we catch up with Ken Arrowsmith less than five minutes after Beerland collected the Champion Beer trophy at the Australian International Beer Awards in Melbourne.
