Photography and RSB

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

I have added a new Gallery section to the website. It is very basic at the moment but will evolve over time as I decide how to best display the photographs. For now you can see photos from my visits to The Mussel Inn, Harrington’s, and Three Boys, plus my photos from the Epic Thornbridge Stout brew day.

I have a backlog of photos to add to the gallery including some from a recent visit to Emerson’s Brewery in Dunedin. I tagged along with Kieran Haslett-Moore, Regional Wines and Spirits’ beer specialist, who was brewing a special beer with Richard Emerson. And not just any special beer but an Extra Special Bitter. The beer, named Regional Special Bitter, will be launched at Regional Wines and Spirits at 5:00pm on Friday July 23, 2010.

Here’s Kieran giving the mash a bit of a stir after the hot water was added, as Richard Emerson looks on.

This photo still needs some tweaking. It is a great demonstration of one of the reasons I dislike both photographing in colour and using a flash: everything has a tinge of red caused by the light of my flash bouncing off a red girder above the camera. I have a strong suspicion that the final version may end up black and white.
