Bevy Brewing Co Brewer

As far as brewery sites go, Bevy Brewing Co has a rather enviable one. Located on the banks of the Swan River, and just 100 metres from Optus Stadium – Australia’s third largest sporting arena – it’s got a lot going for it. Easy walking access from Perth’s CBD or by car, train – even boat…

Bells Beach Brewing Brewer

Bells Beach’s surfing credentials are known far and wide. The Rip Curl Pro has been held there continuously since the 1960s and tourists regularly flock to the beach – and the surrounding Surf Coast region – for a dip, surf and wipe out. However, as anyone who’s spent time there over the years…

The Welder's Dog Brewer

Growing up in Armidale, there was much about the rural city and the surrounding New England region for Dan Emery and Tom Croft to love: the area’s natural beauty, the way country and city life came together, and the kinship so frequently attached to communities built on farming. One thing they didn’t…

Black Arts Brewers & Blenders Brewer

It started as a chance meeting at a homebrew store. Joshua Murnane visited Grain and Grape in Yarraville and asked for advice on brewing sour beer. He was introduced to staff member Michael Leslie and three hours later (according to Josh but much less according to Michael), he was still getting a lesson.…

Atomic Beer Project Brewer

If the name wasn’t enough of a giveaway, it’s not long after walking into Future Mountain brewing and blending that you get the sense of just how important barrels are to the brewery’s story. They line walls and envelop tables while barrel hoops hang down from the old warehouse’s roof like beery…

Black Hops II Brewer

Their rapid growth, awards success and an uncanny ability to gobble up airtime and column inches might make it feel like they've been around far longer. But, when Black Hops started brewing at their Biggera Waters production facility in February 2019, it was less than three years after they'd opened…

Urban Alley Brewery Brewer

Early in 2016, a beer called Once Bitter Urban Ale first appeared in bars across Melbourne under the Collins Street Brewing banner.

Republic Tavern Venue

In a city that feels close to bursting with craft beer, it takes a bit of effort and invention to stand out.

The Oxford Tavern VenueBottleshop

When a local pub is referred to more commonly by a nickname than its actual name, it’s a good sign it has thoroughly cemented itself in the hearts and minds of locals. That’s certainly true for The Oxford Tavern – better known as “The Tav” – which has sat on the corner of one of Petersham’s…

Craft Beer Coopery Bottleshop

It’s a sad reality that many men struggle to talk about how they’re going, or to reach out for help when they’re having a hard time. That’s one of the main reasons Trevor Lowder started Craft Beer Coopery in 2017: as a way to bring guys together to have real conversations. It’s a beer…

Six String Blood Orange Vanilla Magik Beer

Few breweries make a Kolsch for the Australian market. Fewer still will make a Kolsch and advertise it as a Kolsch, often simply selling it as a lager. And fewer still experiment with the style. But Six String have taken the traditionally clean style and gone to town on it. To be fair, we should…

Sailors Grave Squid vs Whale Hop Maelstrom 4 Beer

Blasta & Stone LIST.LOUD.REACT. Beer

Balter Brewing Hazy/DC Beer

The instant Balter’s Hazy poked its nose onto the scene earlier in 2019 to mass excitement, it became clear a trio of limited hazy IPAs released nation-wide in 2019 would have no problem gaining attention (though, if we’re being honest, it probably could have been predicted even before then). So,…

Bevy Brewing Co Hooper Pilsner Beer

“Keller everything, I reckon.” Said with enthusiasm, belief and an endearing Aussie twang, this aphorism encapsulates head brewer Andy Scade’s view of Bevy’s Kellerbier pilsner. Named after a German word for Swan, minus the "W" lest it be confused as a menu item, Hooper pours as close to…
