Young Henrys

The tale of Young Henrys could be considered one of serendipity. Originally mooted for Sydney's über-trendy suburb of Surry Hills, the brewery's establishment there was scuppered by council bureaucracy and resident objection. Eventually though, a new site was found, this one in the rather more diverse suburb of Newtown. Consent was gained, tanks were installed, the beer began to flow and it's safe to say they've never looked back. In fact, it's now difficult to imagine that Young Henrys could have ever existed anywhere else.

From the outside it could easily seem that the little patch where Young Henrys now resides isn't so much a brewery as some sort of permanent beer festival. It certainly attracts the right crowd; musicians, artists, environmentalists, chefs, poets, activists and free spirits - just about anyone with anything interesting to say or do seems to be summoned here as if by some giant, invisible beer magnet.

This was achieved, initially at least, simply by putting out good quality, locally-made beer that the community was proud to call its own; beer with simple and unambiguous names like Real Ale, Hop Ale and Natural Lager. But once a bit of a following was established, things took a more interesting turn. For example, where most brewers usually work with other brewers when collaborating on a beer, Young Henrys tends to get busy brewing with famous bands, magazines and radio stations. That rock n roll attitude is worn proudly at the brewery; the persian rug on the tasting room floor was donated by an ARIA award-winning rock band (after they'd help brew a beer, of course), electric guitars adorn the wall and the big old amplifiers blast out every genre of music you could imagine.

Walking into the brewery you instantly pick up a certain vibe, one that causes you to adjust your immediate plans so you can spend a bit more time kicking back at the bar with a fresh pint and watch the brewers in action. And if said brewers aren't knee-deep in spent grain, they're always happy to have a chat or give you a tour of how the beer is made. While you can't really stay all day because there's no food available on site (though on special occasions they have been known to drive a food truck right into the brewery), when you do leave chances are you'll be lugging one of their famous 2 litre growlers with you back towards King Street.

Whether it's a product of its location, an idea that landed in the right place at the right time or a little of both, Young Henrys is a brewery that has become integrated with its local community like few others. In that way, it is the embodiment of what a small brewery should be; one that makes damn good beer, gets local people interested and has a hell of a lot of fun doing it. NO

Young Henrys Summer Hop Ale (Cans)

Tapped November 3rd, 2017
For summer 2016, Young Henrys took one of their original beers, the Hop Ale, and reinvented it for the contemporary market. In that case, it meant lightening up the malt backbone and layering on the fruity hops in hefty amounts. And now they've brought the Summer Hop Ale back and given it the most popular contemporary refresh going: aluminium casing. If you tried the beer last time around, you'll know what to expect.

Young Henrys Natural Lager

In a country where corporate-produced lager is the undisputed king, it's somewhat surprising that more Australian craft breweries don't make them. That's not something to be said at Young Henrys however; their Natural Lager has been pouring from the Newtown brewery since the day its doors first opened. It's also fair to say their version wouldn't be confused with anything you'd see coming with a global brand name attached.

Young Henrys Real Ale

The Real Ale is Young Henrys take on a classic English Best Bitter. As you'd want from the style, it's a fairly low alcohol beer at 4 per cent abv, has fairly low carbonation and a long, smooth bitterness. That bitterness comes from the all-Australian hops - Galaxy, Stella and Topaz - and they also add a bit of a citrus kick. With a 50-50 malt balance between Australian varieties and the classic English variety Maris Otter, Young Henrys Real Ale has a real solid malt backbone which helps produce… Read more

Young Henrys Hop Ale

Brewer's notes: This is no garden-variety hoppy ale. She's big, bold and beautiful. She's dark and mysterious. Not stout-black, more super dark red. If you triumphantly hold a pint of this beauty up to the light it'll show off amazing crimson hues, but in the depths of a darkened winter pub she'll be black as the night. The malty richness comes from a whopping seven malts - Australian and American. Each plays its part - Carafa gives it its dark colour, Crystal its red hue, Rye for spiciness and Munich… Read more

Young Henrys Newtowner

In December 2012, the Sydney suburb of Newtown celebrated its sesquicentenary. And in honour of the 150 years since becoming a municipality, the crew at Young Henrys was invited to brew a beer for the suburb they call home. Called 'Newtowner', it has a bit of a nod towards Sydney's colonial past in that it's an English Summer Ale, as well as being made with English Crystal malt alongside Australian Pale.

Young Henrys Winter Hop Ale

Tapped June 1st, 2017
Last summer, Young Henrys gave one of its mainstays an overhaul. Hop Ale, which had already been through few iterations, was reworked into companion piece Summer Hop Ale via the cunning means of adding a mountain of fruity hops, lightening the malt base and creating something of a tropical fruit salad of a beer. Now they're trying something similar for winter. Winter Hop Ale is a red IPA that makes a feature of West Coast US hops and adds a touch of rye malt to the mix too. Its redness is of the… Read more

It all began with a bet.

Most times when you see mussels added to a beer, it’s in a stout where the dark roast characters are able to comfortably incorporate a briny kick. But adding mussels to a witbier is a different prospect. There’s very little in the way of ballsy malt to mask the musk of the sea, so the brewer must be diligent in their calculations of how much to use. Yet the team at Young Henrys was generous in its estimations, adding 12 kilograms of mussels and, even more unusually, 12 kilograms of mussel stock.… Read more
