She is undoubtedly one of Australia’s leading beer judges, having officiated at just about every major beer competition in the world over the last 20 years including the World Beer Cup and the Australian International Beer Awards, for which she is currently on the advisory panel.

I caught up with Tina for a chat about her own career evolution, the current state of beer quality in Australia, and how we can all develop our sensory skills.
