Bright Brewery Mystery Beer No.1 Beer

Bright's man about Melbourne Evin Craney had long had an idea. Well, he'd probably had more than one, but there was this particular one: that a brewery should allow their brewer to create a beer – no guidance as to what it could be or what should be in it – and they and they alone would know what…

Moo Brew & Archie Rose Whisky Barrel Aged Stout 2018 Beer

Tasmania's Moo Brew was one of the first local breweries to experiment with barrels, putting out very limited volumes of barrel aged stout each year in the first half of the decade. In the past few years, as the brewery has continued to grow and made the transition to cans, as new beers have arrived…

Temple Brewing Brewer's Choice: Astra AXPA & Bold New World & Half Time Beer

Brewer's Choice is a new series of one-off, small batch, draught only releases from Temple. The brewers will decide what they want to brew and any venues wanting the beers on tap go straight to the brewing team – well, [head brewer Glenn Harrison](glenn@templebrewing.com.au) to be precise – to order…

Hobart Brewing Co Colorado IPA Beer

They might not have been operating out of their Red Shed on the Hobart waterfront for that long, but November 11 marks two years since Brendan Parnell and Scott Overdorf took to the harbour in a wooden row boat to launch the first Hobart Brewing Co beer: the Harbour Master Tasmanian Ale. So they're marking…

Hobart Brewing Co Chestnut Ale & Tascadian Dark Ale Beer

With their brewery venue up and running, the focus at Hobart Brewing Co now is very much about filling all their taps with tasty beer. They've got three winter seasonals planned, with two of them hitting taps on the very first Saturday of winter. One is a **Chestnut Brown** *(pictured left)* brewed with…

Holgate Brewhouse Tank 9 Series: Helles Beer

One of the questions we ask in our semi-regular Brew & A features with Aussie brewers (only semi-regular as they're all too bloody busy to respond...) is what beer would they choose if they were stranded on a desert island for the rest of their days. When compiling the questions years ago, we tried them…

Brew & A: Pizey News

Not only has Bootleg Brewery been around longer than almost every other microbrewery in Australia, it's done a remarkable job of holding onto its brewers for a long time. Past head brewer Michael "Brookesy" Brookes was there a decade and a half and the man that stepped into his shoes has now been…

Brew & A: Stu Grant News

  In Tasmania’s busy beer market, gypsy outfit Ocho has managed to stand out from the crowd since launching. Stu Grant released the first beers under the Ocho banner shortly after he started brewing at Van Diemen at the end of 2015, selling direct to customers via the brewing…

Brew & A: Ken Friend News

Ken Friend is every bit as chirpy, chatty and kind-hearted as you might expect from someone with such a surname. But don’t see his easy smile and mistake him for a passive person who lets the world push him around. Maybe 22 years in the Air Force shaped him into a determined go-getter with an eye…

Brew & A: Keegan Steinbacher News

Since the launch of their first beers at their panoramic brewery home at Cape Naturaliste in South West WA almost a decade ago, Eagle Bay Brewing have established themselves as a key player in the Western Australian brewing scene.  Next year sees the family-run operation mark ten years…

Brew & A: Caolan Vaughan News

Think Stone & Wood and the first thing that will come to mind is Pacific Ale. The brewing company launched in Byron Bay a decade and a bit ago is much more than that, of course. Among its many parts is the Counter Culture series of beers, launched in 2019 with the ridiculously good Killer Kween…

Brew & A: Andrew Robson of The Lord News

When the Lord Nelson took out Champion Draught Beer at the Sydney Royal Beer & Cider Show earlier this month, it wasn't just one of Australia's pioneering brewpubs that enjoyed the accolade. As The Lord's founder Blair Hayden was quick to point out, Nelspresso Brown Ale's success was…

Brew & A: Sam Clayman News

“Brewers are essentially just glorified janitors who farm yeast on the side.” Studying enzyme function relating to metabolism in snails. It doesn’t sound like an obvious precursor to brewing. But for Sam Clayman, head brewer at All Hands Brewing House, it was exactly that. Sam started homebrewing…

Brew & A: Brookes Beer News

With the new Crafty Pint up and running, we're bringing back some of the regular features that may have been a little neglected while the tradies were doing their refurbs at Crafty Towers. We've also got plenty of new feature series coming too – look out for Craft Beer Heroes, Beer Nuts, a new in-house…

Brew & A: Greg Mace – The Craft & Co News

It's Waitangi Day and the occasion of the first ever GABS Hottest 100 Kiwi Craft Beers countdown too. So it feels like as good a time as any to run our Brew & A with Greg Mace (pictured above), a Kiwi brewer who now plies his trade in Melbourne. He secured his first job at Dux de Lux in Christchurch…

Brew & A: Wilson Hede of Two Birds News

He may not be a "bird", but Two Birds head brewer Wilson Hede has played an important role in helping the Spotswood brewery stretch its wings. Since taking up the head brewer mantle just a few months ago, Wilson has become an integral part of the next stage in the Two Birds expansion, helping…

Brew & A: Barossa Valley Brewing News

If there's one downside to the rapid growth of the Australian craft beer industry, it's that brewers are bloody busy. (OK, we're pretty busy here too so we can't direct all the blame in their direction...) Hence, while we plan to run a Brew & A every month (not to mention a Beer Nut, Craft Beer Hero,…

Brew & A: The Innovative Goat News

A few years back, we were taking photos at a bottleshop that had requested a listing on the site. While there, a young woman came in to pick up fresh growler supplies. We had a chat about beer and went our separate ways. Some time later, our paths crossed again – and again and again – usually…

Brew & A: Hannah Honnef News

Ocean View Estates is a winery situated 45km north of Brisbane in the Moreton Bay hinterland. There, alongside the wine, popular restaurant and breathtaking views, you'll find beer too, thanks to Hannah Honnef, daughter of the winemakers behind the family-run operation, Thomas and…

Brew & A: Justin Corbitt News

Melbourne brewery Hawkers is approaching the midway point of a burst of barrel aged releases that could well be the densest yet seen in Australia. Following a triplet of aquavit-ified Wheat Wines, a bourbon barrel aged Old Ale left the brewery this week and there are various imperial stouts to come,…

Brew & A: Chase Saraiva – Wildflower News

Chase Saraiva’s journey to become head brewer of Sydney’s Wildflower Brewing and Blending is a tale as old as time. He travelled 12,500km for a two-month working holiday only to be caught in the middle of a deadly global pandemic two weeks in. Thus, with no way of returning to his pestilence-riddled…

Brew & A: Ben from Ida Pruul News

There’s an air of mystery to Ida Pruul and that’s very much how Ben Sewell likes it. The name means east brew in Estonian, and the brewing company's can design references the small town in eastern Estonia where he was inspired to brew. But it also refers to a promise made to someone close…

Brew & A: 3 Ravens News

Perhaps the most striking aspect at this year’s Australian International Beer Awards was the level of success enjoyed by many of Australia’s most established microbreweries. OK, two trophies for Korea’s Oriental Brewery and seven trophies heading Stateside was notable too, but the appearance onstage…

Brew & A: Ash Hazell News

Head back to 2004, travel down to the Margaret River region in Western Australia and, in the heart of wine country, you may well have found yourself stopping into the freshly opened Colonial Brewing Co. In the decade and a half that’s followed, plenty has changed. The wine region has…

Brew & A: Morrison Brewery News

There's around 20 breweries and brewing companies that call Tasmania home today. Yet most of them have less than a year or two under their belts, making Launceston based Morrison Brewery something of an elder statesman on the scene. This week sees the family run business turn five, with celebrations…

Brew & A: Currumbin Valley Brewing News

The remarkable growth of the craft beer industry over the past decade or so has been a pleasure to watch, not least the way in which it's taken root then flourished in Queensland. But, with so many brewing companies around and only so many mouths chasing what they're releasing, it doesn't mean it's easy…

Mountain Goat 20th Birthday Tour Event

This October Mountain Goat celebrates a milestone few other breweries in Australia have managed: they're turning 20.  Plenty has happened since 1997 when Cam Hines and Dave Bonighton started brewing beer in a vastly different world to the one we have today. It's a journey that's seen…
