Appreciate a good beer

WE ALL have our beer of choice, be it XXXX, Tooheys, Corona or VB.

For decades, a well-earned beer at the end of the day has been part of the Aussie way of life.

This week, beer is being celebrated across the state as part of Queensland Beer Week.

The week has been organised by the publishers of the Beer Lovers Guide to Australia and Critics Choice - Australia's Best Beers.

Event co-ordinator Mark Midro said Queensland Beer Week will be a state-wide celebration of beer for its finest properties.

"Beer is rapidly changing, as is our perception of it and Queensland Beer Week will seek to showcase the best that beer can be," he said.

"Queensland Beer Week will act as a focus for this developing beer scene and help to responsibly promote this growing beer appreciation movement across the State."
