After more than two years of toil, it seems the last major pieces of the Newstead Brewing Mk II puzzle are in place.
They now have a small brewery to have fun with, a big new brewery to make enough beer for the masses, a venue where said masses can come to drink and dine, a growing barrel program, a burgeoning lab run by some super smart people and they've just switched on their new canning line.
Now it's time for a party.
To launch the new canned range – one that's not just colourful but, arranged correctly, has the Brisbane River flowing from one to the next – they're having a gathering at the new Milton venue on Wednesday August 9.
There's not going to be anything too fancy involved, just loads of good beer, good people and good times.
The party starts at 7pm but if you can't make it to the main event, earlier in the day they'll be slinging the very first cans around town from 4pm to 6pm at the following stores:
- Craft Red Hill, Red Hill
- Valley Wine Shop, Fortitude Valley
- Black Sheep Bottle Shop, Newmarket
- Pineapple Hotel/Helsby's Ale House, Kangaroo Pt
- Hawthorne Cellars, Hawthorne
- Greenslopes Cellars, Greenslopes
