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…

Stone & Wood Stone Beer Beer

For a bunch of brewers on the cutting edge of the modern Australian brewing scene, the guys at Stone & Wood don't mind taking inspiration from Marsellus Wallace once in a while. Well, once in a year, to be precise. As that's when they invite friends and family to their Byron Bay and "get Medieval on…

Hawkers Beer Hazy IPA Beer

If there’s any doubt there’s some love for the Hawkers brand in the beer market, the addition of this new member to their core range should dispel it. Hazy IPA was released on the afternoon on July 26, 2021, and, less than 24 hours later, it was gone from the brewery’s webstore. Considering nobody…

Stomping Ground Bearbrass Beer

There’s a fair bit of history to this limited release tin from Stomping Ground. For one, the name Bearbrass was among the first that European settlers knew Melbourne as, apparently due to a misunderstanding of Birrarung, the name of the Yarra River in the language of the Wurundjeri. Fast forward quite…

Stone & Wood & Afends Crop Circles Beer

A theme running through Stone & Wood's limited release beers from their early days has been a fondness for collaboration, but rarely with others from the beer industry. While there have been exceptions, for the most part those invited to join them on brew days have been drawn from elsewhere: artists,…

BentSpoke Brewing Co Descent 21 Beer

Rich and Tracy from BentSpoke were good enough to come along to The Crafty Pint's IPA Blind Tasting Championship as part of Pint of Origin at Good Beer Week 2021. Their reward, along with all the other guests – brewers and paying attendees – was to spend two weeks in quarantine after it turned out…

Bad Shepherd Peanut Butter Porter 2020 Beer

They've gradually been transitioning their beers into cans for quite some time now. And, as we move through 2020, they've been getting rather bolder with them too. Exhibit 1: the return of Peanut Butter Porter, which first appeared in black and tan cans as entry nine in their Brew Crew Series last summer…

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…

Young Henrys & Afends Hemp IPA Beer

When hemp became legal to use in Australian foods in 2017, a number of brewers jumped at the chance to try it in beer. Young Henrys was one of them… but they weren’t going to rush it. They [teamed up with Afends](https://craftypint.com/news/1932/sowing-the-seeds-of-hemp-beer?fb_comment_id=1867351203347538_1868983923184266),…

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…

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: 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…

Aussie Beer Blogs: New South Ales News

In the worlds of literature and serious journalism, the use of puns tends to be frowned upon, if not outright forbidden. Yet in the beer world, whether it's beer or brewery names or beer writing, you'll find them welcomed and, for the most part, positively encouraged. We're certainly not afraid to…

Aussie Beer Blogs: Brews & Bacon News

Once upon a time, we used to shine a spotlight on Aussie beer blogs pretty much monthly. The slot was called, rather innovatively, "Blog of the Month". Given it's almost two years since we last ran one, we feel the title has somewhat lost its relevance. But Aussie beer blogs continue to come and go so…

Aussie Beer Blogs: The Craft Beer King News

A slightly different entry into our Aussie Beer Blogs series here. Regular readers of the site will already be familiar with Matt King as he has been providing most of our coverage of the beer scene in South Australia for the past few years. Recently, he launched (or, technically, relaunched) his…

Aussie Beer Blogs: The Year of Beer News

Sometimes it's best to keep things simple. And that's a reasonable way to describe the idea that got Tim Smith into writing about beer. A fairly recent convert to the world of craft beer, the Port Macquarie resident decided to make his exploration of the wider beer world something of a challenge: a…

Aussie Beer Blogs: offthetap News

He loves beer. He loves travel. And he loves to hunt down new beers when he travels. So, following a suggestion from a mate in the pub, Matt Johnson decided to start capturing his passions via another one: photography, creating offthetap and attracting Instagram followers in the thousands. He…

Aussie Beer Blogs: The Beer Healer News

In the middle of 2015, we received an email from a chap in Hobart asking for advice as he embarked on starting a beer blog. Chris Lukianenko had just left a job in marketing for Lion but was keen not to lose touch with the beer world for which he had so much passion. Thus he launched The Beer…

Aussie Beer Blogs: Food Grog Blog News

It was only supposed to be a means of sharing recipes with his mates, but his report on a beer filled trip to Wellington saw one Brisbane beer geek's blog become morph into something else entirely. A year on from its launch, we ask Jamie Brocket to tell us all about Food Grog Blog. Name: Jamie…

Aussie Beer Blogs: Brewed, Crude & Bitter News

It's time to shine a spotlight on another Aussie beer blog: a transglobal double header, no less (well, sorta). Brewed, Crude & Bitter was started by two mates, Judd Owen (above left and right) and Brad Gellert when they both inhabited Brisbane's beer scene but has since spread its…

Beer Is Your Friend News

Glen Humphries occupies a rare position. And not because he's one of just three winners of the Australian International Beer Awards Beer Media trophy to date. It's because he writes a regular newspaper column on beer. Despite the phenomenal growth of craft beer in Australia in recent years…

Beer Nuts: Rosemarie Ensink News

And how has the way in which we consume information…

Beers Out Back News

It's not just beer that's becoming ever more diverse in this era of adventure. Businesses involved in the craft beer world are becoming increasingly multifaceted too.

Beer Travel: The Noisy Minor Shout 2014 News

OK, so we’re not 100 percent sure if what follows counts as beer travel. But there was a bus involved, there was beer and people moved around… The event in question was the second Noisy Minor Shout, which saw the Mt Tamborine based brewery (the sister brand of Fortitude Brewing) take guests…

Inflammable Material at Platinum Liquor Event
