Boom, Bash, Yeah! BRŁO Brewery, Berlin. LIVE craft beer podcast! 🇩🇪🍻✨

Berlin’s craft beer scene is alive and well! Last week on my very last day on German soil, I treated myself to one last craft beer and streetart walking tour around Berlin to sample some of this magical city’s delicious craft beers and take in the history of Berlin just one last time before jetting out to Australia.

My final stop for the day was BRŁO Brewery. Earlier in the week, I’d sampled their delicious Pale Ale on tap at St Oberholz in Rosenthaler Platz (the co-working space where Soundcloud made its first steps) and wanted to get a taste for the rest of their range.

Much to my delight, while the BRŁO founders weren’t on site, Devin Duffy Meade, self-confessed craft beer nerd, BRŁO’s sales & marketing dude and expert tour guide was in on his days off and I was like.. FUCK it! Let’s record a quick 26 minute podcast! 

Kick-ass chats and if you’ve ever wanted to know more about Berlin’s craft beer scene then THIS is the place to wet your whistle! Oh, and we tell you the awesome story behind what BRŁO means too. Get amongst it!

P.s. Mad love & shoutouts to bar guru Hannah Morrison at BRŁO for the beer flight, beer + food matching sample for the porter & take-aways… Can you believe Berlin Airport Security made me skull that BRŁO German IPA at the airport??!! 😃✨🍻🇩🇪

Prost!

International Peace Day – 1 Hot Tip To Make Someone Else’s Day Today.

Posted on

International Peace Day. South Bondi. Sunrise by @hotndelicious.

International Peace Day. South Bondi. Sunrise. 

Life is all about perspective. Each year on the 21st of September, International Day of Peace is observed around the world. The General Assembly has declared it as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. And today I want to do my part!

One of the approaches to life that I have lived by for years is that if I’m having a bad day, I say hi to someone else, quite often a stranger, and ask them how their day is going. It is amazing the difference a little human touch and kindness can make to someone else’s day and also lift the spirits of yours in turn.

In more recent years, a philosophy I have developed for myself is that if I can make a positive impact to just one person’s life in my lifetime, then in turn that validates my own. If you then strive to bring that philosophy into every day life and push yourself to exercise more patience and understanding (even if someone cuts you off in traffic or from a perceived slight from an off-hand comment), you can actually change the lives of people around you, make an impact on a micro scale and the world a better place.

If there’s someone who’s culture/background you don’t know enough about that might provide you with more insight as to who they are or who’s position on a viewpoint you vehemently disagree with, then reach out to them and engage in open dialogue (without attacking the person or getting angry). Most judgement or hate arises from lack of understanding or fear, so if we strive for understanding, even if we still don’t agree on a viewpoint, it creates a stronger connection & brings use closer together as a species.

Do yourself a favour today, on International Peace Day. Say hi to someone you don’t know and put some love out there in the world 🌎❤✨✌

My gift to you and all my love. It will make you feel good!

xo Dan Wilkinson AKA @hotndelicious.
