A new brewery is taking flight in Brisbane this month. Archer Brewing has been launched by former pilot Stuart Martin, wife Lucy and the man behind Croft Brewing and has found an underground home in the base of the city's International Hotel.
Newstead Brewing is deep into stage two of its development, building a large brewery close to XXXX and launching a project to study Brisbane's indigenous yeasts. In a broad-ranging interview, Judd Owen speaks to founder Mark Howes and new head brewer Dr Kerry Claydon.
