The Monkey Bar Venue

The Central West NSW city of Dubbo, around five hours drive inland from Sydney, is much like many other regional centres. The soil is red, the people are warm and welcoming and, up until 2017, craft beer was scarce – at least until husband and wife team Tim and Cass Smith opened The Monkey Bar, a venue…

Young Henrys & Collective Arts Rye IPA Beer

For this year’s Adelaide Beer & BBQ Festival, Canadian brewery Collective Arts brewed collaboration beers with six breweries, and this Rye IPA brewed with Young Henry is Sydney’s contribution. In a sea of juicy IPAs, this beer is a drop of resin; the syrupy body brings West Coast flavours, along…

Moo Brew Seasonal Stout 2013 Beer

On a tour of Moo's brewery just before it became operational, head brewer OJ was at his most animated when showing off the waste water treatment system. This isn't to say he has any unpleasant foibles, more that he's a real technician when it comes to brewing, someone fascinated by the finest of details…

Best New ACT Beers Of 2018 News

Within the ACT, 2018 has felt like a year of consolidation for the local beer industry, but also one in which brewers have been extending their reach within the community via sponsorships and events. In the wider region, however, there have been plenty of new breweries pop up – although that's…

The Incubators: Batch Brewing News

This is a story of stories. Of influence and invisible threads. Mostly, though, it's about two people and their brewery.  Chris Sidwa and Andrew Fineran are not from around here but five years ago, in December 2013, they opened a brewery here, in Marrickville. Back then they had this idea that…

Going Green: Carbon Reduction News

There's a good chance you've been been hearing a lot about this thing called climate change and how we all have to do something about it. Well, instead of grabbing a beer and waiting for things to blow over, Batch Brewing Co owner Christopher Sidwa and the brewery's bar and supplier relations…

Podcast People: Sessionable News

Many moons ago, we decided it would be a good idea to approach what was then a relatively new local podcast for a feature on The Crafty Pint. For some reason, it never happened. Thankfully, Sessionable has proven to have fine staying power and continues to offer its inimitable take on all things beer. The…

The Collaborators: Provenance Flour And Malt News

As the craft beer scene has grown across Australia, the focus on where the beer in your glass has come from has grown in tandem.

Balter Top 2018 Craft Beer Survey News

The mantle of craft beer's top dog appears to have been passed, with the 2018 Australian Craft Beer Survey placing Balter as the country's best. It follows the Gold Coast brewery's number one spot for its XPA in the most recent GABS Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers poll, making it back-to-back victories…

Hopsters Club Together News

The local beer industry continues to diversify – and not just in terms of the places you'll find breweries and beer venues or in the beer styles being conceived. Increasingly, the makeup of businesses themselves is evolving, with Sydney's Hopsters Cooperative Brewery a case in point. Operating under…

Aussie Exports: Craig Thorn of BAOS News

Our Aussie Export series usually focuses on Australians who run or work for breweries overseas. But there are many more facets to the global beer community. For one, there's the thriving beer media and, even within that field, there's much diversity and variety to be found. Outside more traditional…

Behind Bars: Monkey Bar Dubbo News

Back in the middle of 2016, we ran a feature on Tim Smith. He'd taken a rapid tumble down the rabbit hole, going from his first experiences of craft beer to running a blog, The Year In Beer, through which he was documenting his efforts to try a different beer every day for a year while enticing…

Hottest 100 Kiwi Beers Of 2017: The Results News

The results of the second GABS Hottest 100 Kiwi Beers poll are in and Panhead has made it two for two with Supercharger APA holding onto top spot. There was movement elsewhere on the podium, however, with Garage Project's now retired Death From Above taking a posthumous bow in second, joined by…

Hottest 100 Kiwi Beers of 2017: Analysis News

If there were any questions as to whether Panhead’s 2016 acquisition by Lion would have some sort of lag effect and diminish the popularity of its beers with drinkers (as appears to have happened with some of the most recent acquisitions in Australia), the answer would appear to be a resounding:…

Best New Queensland Beers Of 2017 News

Queenslanders are notorious for their copious beer consumption. But no longer are they all content to stick to monochromatic cans and decals (and flavours). Now, they cry for something other than just volume – they cry for quality, variety and innovation. New breweries are popping up faster…

Aussie Beer Blogs: Sydney Beer News

More than 18 months ago, a British expat not long arrived in Sydney got in touch with The Crafty Pint's main Sydney writer. Tim Hodge was launching a new beer site he'd built from the ground up. It was called Sydney Beer and was conceived with the intention of telling people about and commenting on the…

The Big Issue: Weird Beers News

Belly button fluff. Whale vomit. Carrots. Not three things you'd expect to see in a sentence together. Or, indeed, in a beer. Yet, in the past couple of years, it's beers featuring those ingredients that have garnered media attention across the world – far more than pretty much any other beers released…

X Marks The... Something News

As 2017 rolls on, we're witnessing a rise in the popularity of beers bearing the XPA tag. If you're reading The Crafty Pint, there's a good chance you'll have tried one or two, maybe even have a favourite. What's less clear is just what XPA means. It’s IPA’s younger sibling. It’s pale ale’s…

Aussie Beer Blogs: Little Hop Beers News

The title of this article may be a little misleading as the latest person to appear in our featured beer blogs series isn't an Aussie. Hannah Louise Grugel is a Brit who started writing about beer in the UK and has continued with her Little Hop Beers blog since landing in Sydney last year. Here she…

Aussie Beer Blogs: Schoonerversity News

When it comes down to it, for all the experimentation, history, science, artistry and so on that goes into making the beer world so fun and fascinating, it is, at the end of the day, all centred around a liquid that can make us feel pleasure. And that's pretty much the sole reason Mick Wust decided…

Aussie Beer Blogs: The Craft Beer King News
