What Jayne Did Next

What Jayne Did Next
June 22 2011 by Crafty Pint

The success that women are enjoying in Australia’s brewing industry is well documented. There are female brewers at a number of leading craft breweries and many others who play key roles in the running of breweries and industry bodies too. And now, having bade farewell to Mountain Goat, Jayne Lewis is setting about establishing the country’s all female brewing company, the cheekily titles Two Birds Brewing.

We’re aware that Jayne’s been playing around with recipes at home for a while now and, given her parting gift to the Goats was a version of the Rapunzel Belgian Golden Ale that had been aged for 15 months in chardonnay barrels then blended with another beer, expectations will be high for anyone who’s enjoyed the beers coming out of Richmond in the past few years. That said, there’s still no word of what the first beer will be. It will be brewed under contract as Jayne and business partner Danielle Allen set about building their own brewery, which they hope to open within 18 months.

Jayne, who left her winemaker roots in Margaret River to join Little Creatures before heading to Matilda Bay and then Mountain Goat, says: “We hope to introduce something new, fresh and approachable to the market and encourage both female and male beer drinkers. We are in this for the long haul and plan to help build on the momentum for the growing Good Beer movement.”

For the time being, you can keep up to date with progress by following Jayne on Twitter or Two Birds Brewing on Facebook. Watch out for a first beer arriving for Spring.
