BeerMatt is Matt Kirkegaard, a Brisbane-based freelance beer writer who, over the past decade, has developed a reputation as one of the few independent beers educators in the country.

Sought out as a speaker, educator and media commentator about beer, Matt is passionate about beer and his enthusiasm is infectious. His tastings are light hearted but with a focus on educating about and elevating beer. Matt reckons that despite its status as Australia’s national drink, beer really needs to sack its current agent and publicist if it’s going to achieve the respect that it deserves as the equal of wine...though wine can also keep the cravats.

Although first and foremost a writer, Matt started his BeerMatt tastings because, no matter how good the prose, one sip of great beer is worth a thousand words...and is infinitely more fun.

Matt is dedicated to sharing his passion for beer through education and tastings and can deliver beer appreciation events in just about any corporate or social situation, a well as providing consulting services to hotels, restaurants and bars.

BeerMatt tastings have just been named as one of the 50 best food experiences in Brisbane
