Born and raised in Westport, New Zealand, Luke Robertson studied journalism at the Southern Institute of Technology before moving to Australia in 2005. While working for a media analysis company, Luke used his spare time to create Ale of a Time. The beer focussed blog and podcast soon became one of Australia's most well known places to find news and commentary about the growing beer world. After winning the Australian International Beer Awards Media Trophy in 2015, Luke gave up his corporate job and reinvented himself as a freelance writer and event host. Now writing for publications such as Beer & Brewer, Broadsheet, and Good Beer Hunting (US), Luke also works closely with beer festivals such as GABS and Melbourne's Good Beer Week, providing words and hosting public tastings. In everything he does, Luke loves to celebrate beer, food, and the culture that surrounds both. When he's not spending his days in bars and breweries, you'll usually find him in his kitchen baking bread, cooking for family and friends, or making negronis for himself.
