MORE MILLER GENUINE DRAFT - THANKS TO FOSTER'S
Foster's international NZ has taken over the New Zealand distribution rights for Miller Genuine Draft, effective 1 August. "Miller Genuine Draft is already the number one American beer in the New Zealand market but we believe there's plenty room to increase its presence, visibility and consumption," says Mr Bonner.

AUSTRALIAN BEER CONSUMPTION FELL IN FY2001
Australian beer consumption fell 1.5 percent in the year to June 30 as drinkers switched to other beverages such as pre-mixed alcoholic drinks and spent more money on other leisure activities, executives at the brewers told an industry conference in Melbourne.

IN BEER'S NEW WORLD, THE NEWS IS GOOD AND BAD
by Michael Jackson
The Bad News - 'This is a new round of takeovers, on an unprecedented scale. The big brewers all now see their market as being the world' The Good News - 'While the big guys try with mixed fortunes to create worldwide brands, the most truly international reputations now attend a coterie of products from very small brewers' http://www.beerhunter.com/documents/19133-001567.html
BEER OFFERED AS BOUNTY FOR MAGPIES
Hunters are handing over dead magpies in exchange for jugs of beer at a Te Anau bar. Clint Tauri, owner of The Moose Cafe and Bar in Te Anau, was alarmed by attacks on Fiordland's native birds and decided to reward his customers with a free beer every time they brought in a dead magpie. Since the start of May he had given away more than 200 jugs http://www.stuff.co.nz/inl/index/0,1008,874452a1640,FF.html
WHAT'S IN A NAME? By Geoff Griggs
Following on from AroMac and Blonde Mac, the iconic Nelson brewery - these days under the guiding hand of Lion Breweries - has just released the third in its series of limited-release beers. Peated Malt Mac is named after its most unusual ingredient, a peat-dried malt similar to those employed by Scottish whisky distillers. At 6%, the beer is clearly intended as a winter warmer. Peated Malt Mac beer pours a reddish copper colour with a head that dissipates quickly; the aroma is of sweet fruity esters and hops, with a whiff of smokiness. Rich in the mouth (but not as full bodied as the label suggests), the palate is bittersweet with toasty, smoky notes followed by a hint of sweetish, spirity alcohol and fruit. The finish is long, mouth filling and fruity, with plenty of alcoholic warmth and hops. www.realbeer.co.nz/library/authors/griggs-g/200107whatsinaname.html
BEERS FOR A COLD WINTER'S NIGHT by Geoff Griggs
Two beers reviewed - Roggen Sunrise; the fifth in the Brewmaster's Selection series and Emerson’s Oatmeal Stout. www.realbeer.co.nz/library/authors/griggs-g/200106coldwintersnight.html
FOR PEAT'S SAKE by Carl Hadler
Whisky and beer are brothers due to this common base ingredient, and therefore it doesn't seem too outrageous an idea to make a beer with peated malt. Saying that, I haven't heard of it being done before and I was pleasantly surprised when Macs released their peated malt beer. http://www.stuff.co.nz/inl/index/0,1008,870433a3683,FF.html
