Fury & Son

We won't lie. When we first saw there was a new brewing company set to start up in Melbourne going by the name Fury & Son, our initial thought was that it could be some hipster brand. Fury & Son: it seemed to possess an air befitting the sort of tattoo, barber and gentleman's outfitters salon you can find lining the country's more fashionably boho strips. Then we went to the brewery...

It turns out that Fury is indeed a person rather than the figment of a marketer's imagination. And, indeed, that Fury – real name Reno Georgiou – is no hipster, but rather the businessman behind a successful window manufacturing business in Keilor Park. What's more, his nickname comes from his temper, so we hope he appreciates where we're going with this listing or The Crafty Pint may not be welcome back at the brewery in a hurry...

The Son is Andrew, with whom Reno had been brewing at home for around 15 years before they decided to step into the commercial realm. Prior to launching Fury & Son, he was working as a pharmacist but dreaming of doing something into which he could put his heart. And that turned out to be craft beer.

Their move from occasional homebrewing partners to owners of towers of stainless steel came to fruition in the winter of 2016. They'd taken over a cavernous industrial unit not far from Reno's window business – one that previously housed a Chinese run $2 trinket business, some of which you might still spot around the brewery. There they installed a 25 hectolitre brewhouse alongside some brand new fermenters and a bottling line. And then they added a brewer.

At launch, there were two core beers: an approachable New World Pilsner and punchy, relatively malty American Pale Ale. Seasonals followed, ranging from a lightly peated, hearty Scotch Ale to a mid-strength hoppy sour, while the core range soon welcomed an IPA.

They're all presented in strikingly simple and elegant packaging, packaging that puts independence as well as the family ownership of the business front and centre. And they quickly found favour too, not just with the Melbourne drinkers who were first to get their hands on the beers but the country's finest experts too: at the 2016 Craft Beer Awards the Pale collected a gold medal, while there were bronzes for the other two – not bad going for the first brews put through the system.

Over Summer 2017/18, Reno and Andrew added a hospitality offering at the brewery too, opening on Fridays and serving up homely warmth and BBQ food alongside their beers. Hopefully, we're still welcome!

Fury & Son IPA

Tapped November 16th, 2016
He may be a sucker for big, malty brews but, with a brewing CV that includes stints at IPA loving Mountain Goat and The Monk, where he tweaked their trophy-winning Chief IPA en route to winning a Champion Brewery title, it's fair to say Fury & Son's head brewer Craig Eulenstein knows his way around an IPA. And it's the rampantly popular beer style – just see the size of our two-part IPA Blind Tasting to see how many are being produced locally now – that joins the New World Pilsner and American… Read more

Fury & Son Pale Ale

Tapped June 1st, 2016
Before returning east to take up the post at Fury & Son, brewer Craig Eulenstein won the title of Champion Small Brewery at the Craft Beer Awards while at The Monk in Fremantle. Clearly, the judges like what he does as this beer – the first brewed at his new Keilor Park workplace – collected a gold medal at the 2016 awards. As hinted at by the Jaguar Racing Green livery it's sporting, it's a pale ale with a fair bit under the hood, an American style pale ale that wanders close to amber territory… Read more

Fury & Son New World Pilsner

Tapped June 1st, 2016
There's been a swing back towards brewing lagers in the craftier realm of Australia's broad beer spectrum in recent times. Yet there's still not too many small brewers who've put one front and centre of their core range. However, this New World Pilsner is one of Fury & Son's two launch beers, alongside an American style Pale Ale. New World pilsners – particularly those popularised in New Zealand – can be relatively full on; a step or two above where the new-to-craft beer drinkers that Fury… Read more

Fury & Son Specials

Fury & Son Stout

Tapped July 3rd, 2018
For its first two winter seasonals, Fury & Son put out a big, chewy Scotch Ale, an insight into then head brewer Craig Eulenstein’s passions. Now, with a new brewing team in place, winter 2018 sees them switch to a style more readily associated with the time of year: a stout. It’s one that comes with the sort of elegant-austere packaging more readily found on imperial stouts (or premium home audio equipment) yet which offers a much more everyman experience. It’s a drinking stout – plenty… Read more

Fury & Son Citra Sour

Tapped November 17th, 2017
Heading into summer, Melbourne's Fury & Son has entered the world of sour beers. Well, sort of. Their summer 2017/18 seasonal is the Citra Sour and is most definitely seasonally appropriate and distinctly Citra-fied; it's not particularly sour, however, but that's no bad thing and, presumably, by design. It's a pale straw pour, one in which any head soon dissipates to the extent you could pass it off visually as a glass of white wine and in which the aromas are dominated by the citrus and passionfruit… Read more

Fury & Son Red Ale

Tapped September 9th, 2017
When we chose to relaunch our blind tastings with a look at hoppy reds and ambers a few months back, it was more a case of finding something we hadn't looked at in a while than thinking it was a particularly "on trend" slice of the multi-dimensional beer spectrum. Yet, while most talk around the craft beer water cooler is of IPAs, sour beer styles and barrels at the minute, it's fair to say this has been a winter well served with hoppy reds and ambers, India red ales and the like.

Fury & Son Scotch Ale 2017

Tapped May 10th, 2017
Melbourne's Fury & Son launched as we were heading into the coldest months in 2016 and thus had good reason to let head brewer Craig Eulenstein indulge his love for rich, malty dark beers from the off. The brewery's first seasonal release was a 7.5 percent ABV Scotch Ale and, 12 months on, the beer is back by popular demand, albeit somewhat altered from its original form. The 2017 vintage is the same strength and retains the same focus on rich and dark, but there's been some tweaking of the recipe,… Read more

Fury & Son Grapefruit Session Ale

Tapped March 9th, 2017
The year of fruit beers continues apace. This time around, it's grapefruit taking centre stage and doing so not in a sour or an IPA but in a humble little session ale. And when we say "centre stage" we mean it as the 400 litres of fresh, unprocessed grapefruit juice the Keilor Park brewery obtained from Mildura are far and away the dominant character. They've been added to a pale, unobtrusive base beer, creating a hazy, um, juice like appearance in the glass. There's some American hops… Read more

Fury & Son Scotch Ale

Tapped June 1st, 2016
Having worked together to come up with a core twosome to represent Fury & Son, Andrew and Reno Georgiou let their brewer decide where he wanted to go for his first seasonal. As they were coming into winter, it was always likely to be something bigger and darker. And, if you know Craig Eulenstein, there was always a good chance it would end up something like this. In his time at Mountain Goat, he brewed a few beers going under the name The Craig and all, in one way or another, put malt front and… Read more
