Peter Lalor, journalist on cricket and beer: S7E6

Peter Lalor is chief cricket writer and beer editor at The Australian newspaper and has been a reporter for over 30 years.

In recent weeks, The Australian published Peter’s Top 20 Beers for 2020 (subscriber-only content).

It’s the 17th consecutive year that he’s had this honour, so I invited him onto the Drinks Adventures podcast for a chat about this impressive knock, and some of the beers that made this year’s list.

I couldn’t talk to Peter with mentioning the somewhat unusual item on his CV: Purchaser of the most expensive beer in history.

And we also touch on his podcasting debut as co-host of the Cricket, Et Cetera program with fellow cricket scribe, Gideon Haigh, and get his thoughts on Australia’s upcoming test series against India.
