After the Swill documentary  Investigating the 100 year old forces shaping Australia's hard drinking culture.

One of the major lobby groups for 6 o'clock closing in 1915 was the Women's Christian Temperance Union - unbeknownst to them instead of curbing the "social evil of alcohol" it produced exactly the opposite effect. Can you think of lobby groups who campaigned for the lockout laws in Sydney, NSW to be implemented? What will the effect be?

After 2 days of doco conference events and talks at #aidc2018 my favourite session is still Wormwood and seeing Curtis Levy receiving his award! Excellent curation of speakers, events and moderators, I have to say!

From all the people we interviewed, we wanted to introduce our small bar owners first. They represent a very contemporary perspective in the question of Australian drinking culture.

Of course there are so many bar owners across Australia, so to make our choice we focussed on those who have shaped or influenced the small bar scene:
Jason Scott and Anton Forte - Baxter's Inn, Frankie's Pizza By The Slice, Shady Pines, Huberts (Sydney)

Tash Conte - Black Pearl (Melbourne)

Andy Freeman - Varnish, Flour Factory, Caballitos (Perth)

Bonnie Shearston - Coppa Spuntino, London Fields, Public, Red Hook
(Brisbane)

Sven Almenning - Eau de Vie, Mjølner, Boilermaker House, The Roosevelt (Sydney and Melbourne)

Tim Philips - Bulletin Place, Dead Ringer (Sydney)

Vernon Chalker - Gin Palace (Melbourne)

There are a couple of others but they also have "pub" pubs so have grouped them there.

Thanks to Dave Spanton at Australian Bartender Magazine for connecting us!
