Newstead Brewing Co Brewer

The beer scene around Brisbane and South East Queensland has utterly transformed itself from a place of few microbreweries and even fewer places in which to drink a craft beer to one of the most vibrant and diverse in Australia. Playing a major role in that transformation since opening the doors of its…

Newstead Brewing Brave New World Beer

Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World is one of those books that, if you've not already read it, you really should – it’s like Black Mirror in book form, only written in 1931. If you haven't, you may well be confused by the descriptors that come with Newstead’s latest kettle sour: conformity and hypnopedia…

Red Hill Brewery Kolsch Beer

A few years ago, we did a Getting Blind With Crafty tasting of golden ales (remember when they were the rage?). One of the beers on the lineup was Red Hill's Golden Ale. It was their biggest seller and one that had been around longer than most, after all. At the same time, it wasn't a golden ale as understood…

Newstead Brewing The Mayne Thing Golden Lager Beer

For the first five years of Newstead Brewing’s existence, their core range included a pale ale and a golden ale… which is really just a kind of pale ale. There was no lager in the lineup, yet many people were constantly asking for a lager. They introduced their seasonal lagers to address this, but…

Newstead Brewing Cyclone Season Summer Lager (2018/19) Beer

Unlike Brisbane (and the rest of Queensland), Dortmund in Germany isn’t known for cyclones. But it’s a beautiful city with a river and a love for beer, so we’ll accept Newstead’s take on a Dortmunder lager with open arms this summer. The 2018/19 Cyclone Season has the malt flavours hiding…

Newstead & Brewski & The Mill V Beer

Newstead Brewing, Brewski, and The Mill on Constance reached five years of operating as 2018 was drawing to a close, and a big part of the birthday celebrations was a trio of collaboration brews and events. You can read more about it and their thoughts on the Brisbane beer scene [here](https://craftypint.com/news/1942/Craft_Beer_Heroes_Newstead_The_Mill_Brewski_At_5). In…

Newstead Brewing Nineteen 09 Coastal Ale Beer

This time around, their…

Newstead Brewing Death Proof Dinkel Bock Beer

When a biologist uses an ancient grain to brew a beer called Death Proof, it sounds like a Bond villain working on an immortality serum. But then he gives it a daft style name like Dinkel Bock so we won't take it seriously. Death Proof is the first beer brewed at Newstead by Evan Goulden, a former…

Newstead Brewing Johnno Apple Cider Beer

You don't see too many breweries putting out a cider. There seemed to be a spate of them a few years back when cider was all the rage but with so many other directions to go in a brewery that give brewers acidity and tang to play with, that seems to have relented. But Newstead has bucked the trend, adding…

Newstead Brewing A Long Story Beer

When they moved into their second brewery at Milton, Newstead installed some barrels and filled them with an assortment of liquids. And, as autumn turned into winter in 2018, they decided it was time to see what was inside some of them. First to be emptied were ex-bourbon barrels containing a strong…

Newstead Brewing Ariana Single Hop IPA Beer

Ariana is a one of the many new hop varieties coming out of Germany, and she's looks to be a beauty. So, when Newstead heard about it, they decided to give it a crack as the fifth beer in their Single Hop IPA series. The beer's white head holds its shape like soft meringue, and a soft, golden glow…

Future Shock News

When Shane Ferguson and Ian Jones open the doors to Future Mountain Brewing and Blending tomorrow, pouring from the taps you’ll find two pilsners, a white ale, a hopped up farmhouse ale, and a whole mix of barrel-aged sours, including some made with apricots, peaches and cherries. It’s…

Who Brews South Fremantle Beers? News

While they're far from new to the scene, having launched in 2016, the bunch of mates who call themselves the South Fremantle Brewing Company reached something of a milestone this month: releasing their first canned beer into the West Australian market.  This beer is a collaboration…

Behind The Hottest 100 Kiwi Beers Of 2018 News

Crafty Crawls: The Frankston Line News

The very first Crafty Crawl to appear on this site featured a public transport route – the 86 tram in Melbourne. That most famous of the city's trams has only gone on to become better and better over time. Yet, who would have thought the train line connecting Melbourne with the long-suffering butt…

Behind The Hottest 100 Beers Of 2018 News

There's been a couple of days for the dust to settle on the eleventh running of the GABS Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers, which has given us enough time to chat to some the people behind the breweries and beers making the stories in 2018. As well as owners and brewers at the trio occupying the…

Beer Travel: The Adelaide Hills News

Adelaide is a unique city in the sense that, if you're caught up in the buzz and bustle that's part and parcel of being a capital city, there are quiet escapes a short drive away in pretty much any direction you choose. A sunny day off is easily filled with laid-back pleasures, be it…

Best New NSW Beers Of 2018 News

Before attempting to justify the makeup of this list, let’s get the excuses out of the way.  There’s no way any one person can try every new beer made in this state. The place is too damn big and there are too many breweries making too many beers for it to be anything close to manageable. That…

Best New Queensland Beers Of 2018 News

Beer in Australia is improving exponentially every year. Perhaps it’s the fear of impending crises that does it: we faced Y2K, then the Mayan calendar concern of 2012, now Trump. Perhaps "Brew every beer as though it’s your last" is imprinted on the minds of paranoid brewers.  And, with…

Best New Tasmanian Beers Of 2018 News

It's fair to say 2018 offered up plenty more reasons for Australians to be dissatisfied with democracy, but one can only assume that a list of the best craft beers for the year – selected by an arbitrarily-chosen panel of experts – will brook no complaints from the public. Right?  After…

The Story Of: Pacific Ale News

It's the middle of 2007 and three mates are gathered in the kitchen of a house in the Melbourne suburb of Surrey Hills. They're surrounded by 45 different bottles of beers. It's a motley lineup, one that stretches from Czech pilsners to Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale, from Mountain Goat…

Crafty Crawls: Hobart – The Breweries News

  With more breweries per capita than any other Australian state, Tasmania’s local beer scene looks to be going from strength to strength. It’s perhaps only to be expected given the state is home to one of the world’s leading hop growing regions and has an abundance of locally grown grains…

Crafty Crawls: Cairns News

Cairns could well be one of the most mispronounced cities in Australia. It's named after William Wellington Cairns, Governor of Queensland from 1875 to 1877.  Most Australians and international visitors tend to focus on the “air” when saying Cairns. But, believe it or not, it’s pronounced…

Crafty Crawls: Freo – South & North News

Let's start at the end, shall we? Yes, for this pilgrimage we recommend you travel past most of the venues that you might visit before commencing your Crafty Crawl.  But there is method to what might appear Dr Seuss like guidance. It comes from the knowledge that many attempting what…

Craft Beer Heroes: Newstead, The Mill & Brewski At 5 News

In the scheme of things, five years isn’t a long time. But, in the life of a craft beer business, a lot can happen in five years. In November 2013, Brisbane saw the opening of three new beer businesses – Newstead Brewing, The Mill on Constance and Brewski – and, in the half decade since, those…

Crafty Crawls: The Breweries Of Marrickville News

In October 2016, we published a Crafty Crawl guide to the breweries of Sydney's Inner West. Such has been the continued growth since then, we're having to revisit the area already, narrowing the guide down to one focused more hyper-locally on Marrickville then following up with another sweeping…

Craft Beer Heroes: Chicks With Ales News

Some people spend years trying to get into the beer industry. Others stumble into it. Kerry Claydon was one of the latter. Like most of us, Kerry didn’t even like beer as a teenager, finding it to be too bitter. She came to enjoy it in the ensuing years, particularly during her ten-year stint…

Beer Travel: Another Belgium News

I realised this year that I had been to most countries in Europe, but never to Belgium. For someone who writes beer travel stories it had become a bit of a joke. Spontaneously, I decided it was time to fill the gap on the map. I was curious about the stories of newer Belgian brewers; plenty has…

Crafty Crawls: Hobart – The Venues News

Hobart is Australia’s second oldest city, and for more than two centuries, Hobartians have not been shy of a drink. Over the course of many decades, the various breweries in the Vandemonian capital became consolidated into a single big one, but recent years have seen a proliferation of inventive…

Crafty Dozen – September 2018 News

It's that time again... We've added another dozen new breweries, bars and bottleshops to the Crafty directory since our last update in July, which gives us an excuse to create another postcard style montage. And to round them all up in one place in case you missed them first time around. They're spread…

Crafty Crawls: Fortitude Valley News

Newstead Brewing Co V (QLD) Event

A Scotswoman, two Irishman, two Aussies and a Scientist walk into a bar. Five years on, each celebrate the opening of three venues. No joke. Somehow, it seems so fitting that three of Brisbane's pioneering good beer purveyors, Brewski, The Mill on Constance and Newstead Brewing,…

Boatrocker Can Launch Along The 86 (VIC) Event

Music fans who have long wished they could bring Boatrocker's Miss Pinky with them to festivals rejoice: the beer will soon be available in cans. But it's not just Miss Pinky that's getting the tinnie treatment, the brewery's Pilsner and Sunshine and Rainbows will also be part of the can range. Those…

Ballistic Beer's Pale Can Launch (QLD) Event

Ballistic's Pale is a beer that's been making its way through the brewery's taps and across Brisbane for some time now.  But, if you've wanted to enjoy the beer at home, few options have been available to you. That's until now. On July 13, Ballistic will be launching its Pale in cans…

Brewmanity, the beer company launched by former Melbourne FC captain Neita and mates that's raising money for FightMND, has embarked on its biggest venture yet.

South West Craft Beer Festival 2018 (WA) Event
