Orange will be home to a new taproom experience from 2022 but the brewery behind the beers isn't so new. Badlands Brewery have announced that after a decade on the city's outskirts, they're moving to the centre of town.
Ten years on from quitting his corporate job to start a brewery in Orange, Jon Shiner has released a unique series of beers under the BADASS banner. We caught up with him to find out more about a decade of doing it his way.
If you're looking for evidence of the growth of craft beer in Australia, you need only look at Orange in Central West NSW. There, as Tim Hanlon discovered, within a 25km radius of Orange's city centre you'll find three microbreweries, with more on the way.
Crafty Pint / March 8, 2016
The Crafty Pint is an independent online magazine and resource for anyone interested in craft beer in Australia. We bring an honest, old-fashioned journalistic approach to beer's brave new world, telling stories because they're worth telling, not because someone is paying us to write them.
We believe in authenticity, integrity, enjoyment and love, and hope to play a role in helping good beer, brewed by good people, find its way into the hands of more drinkers.
