Young Henrys GBW 2013 Rockstar Brews

Young Henrys

Released May 26th, 2013

During Newcastle Craft Beer Week, The Crafty Pint was sharing a late night whisky with Young Henrys founder Richard Adamson when the idea was hatched for him to bring his rockstar brewing collaboration concept to Melbourne for Good Beer Week 2013. Thus it was that six months later My Dynamite, Front End Loader and Hell City Glamours (featuring Young Henrys brewer Oscar) took to the stage at the city's iconic Cherry Bar to launch three beers they'd created with the Newtown brewery. While the bands and attendees did their best to polish them all off on the night, there is still a little of each in existence.

Fresh Six was originally brewed with Front End Loader last year and features agave in keeping with the band's love of tequila. It tips the scales at 6.66% and you can read the story behind it here. My Dynamite is a 4.1% dark red pilsner that features smoked chipotle to "give it a bit of bite" and results in a savoury characteristic to the beer. Hell City's beer is the Red Barrel Red, a bourbon barrel-aged hoppy red ale. According to Richard, the band's life used to be spent permanently on the road between Sydney and Melbourne so they were after an "asphalty" character - whatever that means. It tips the scales at 5.1% and has a predominantly English ale character.
