Editor's Rant

Change has indeed been afoot in 2020, in fact finding its way to kick most of us in the ass where it hurst and when we least expected it. Perhaps its cognitive bias toward bad things happening, but it sure feels as though we’ve had a lot of them this year.

Hoping to dive into 2021 like a cool glass of water or frothy beverage on a summer’s day, this month we’ve looked at what’s on the horizon for the beleaguered pub business coming into summer. It may be worth noting that while we ponder what can be clawed back from the disappointments of 2020, through the glorious and hopefully virus-free warmer months, the northern hemisphere, notably our allies the US and UK, are facing a bleak winter and further shutdowns amid spiralling case numbers of coronavirus.

It might be hard to find someone to look back fondly in hindsight at 2020, but globally speaking Australia has fared pretty well I’m hopeful that in time we may indeed prosper from the experience.
