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…

Brewski Venue

Not too long ago, Caxton Street in Brisbane was known colloquially to some as CaXXXXton Street. Every single one of the strip of bars, clubs and restaurants a short walk from the city’s Suncorp Stadium had a Lion contract. Had someone suggested it would become home to one of the easiest craft beer…

Hop Nation & Up In Smoke Red Haze Beer

The beer scene in Melbourne's west has been coming into its own in some style in the past few years. Two of the more recent additions are Hop Nation, the brewery opened by a pair of winemakers, and Up In Smoke, a venue combining craft beer with smoked meats. And now the two have come together to create…

Bright Topaz Mí¤rzen Beer

One of a rash of unique hop harvest beers to come out of Victoria's breweries this year, this saw Bright take the Topaz hop, a variety that's been around for years, and try something different with it. Traditionally used to make a beer bitter, here Bright decided to add it late in the brewing process…

In between, Newstead developed a partnership…

Dainton Beer All Saaz Beer

They often brew some pretty unusual beers at Dainton but their April 2021 limited release is a bonafide classic, in style, look fit, design and shape. If that sounds more like how you’d describe a pair of shoes over a beer, well, there’s a good reason for that when it comes to All Saaz. Dainton…

Newstead Brewing The Art Series: Sodamouf Soda Ale Beer

The team at Newstead are passionate about beer and the concept of beer as an art form. As such, extending that passion into a collaborative series in support of art and artists feels like a natural evolution. That evolution draws on inspiration from breweries like Canada's Collective Arts to give us…

Woolshed Brewery Bunyip Imperial Stout 2019 Beer

The Bunyip is back, crawling from the dark abyss to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting drinker. This beast-inspired imperial stout is released each year at winter’s peak and is the biggest of the dark beers brewed at the Woolshed Brewery on the banks of the Murray. Jet black in appearance, with a…

Philter Haze Beer

Philter have joined the haze craze and done so in the typical fashion, calling their new IPA, simply, Haze and giving it a lively retro feel with cans inspired by 80s soft drinks but also recalling a casino. And, as is their wont, they've aimed to produce a beer that checks the boxes you'd expect from…

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 & 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.

Crafty Crawls: Mt Lawley & Northbridge News

Hot on the heels – or the beer-stained Chuck Taylor’s – of the Perth CBD Crafty Crawl, Guy Southern takes a walk through the gentrified inner north suburbs of Mount Lawley and Northbridge. While the density of the sister suburbs may be slight when compared to Eastern capitals,…

Crafty Crawls: The 86 Tram Pt II News

When we launched our Crafty Crawl series with a trip along Melbourne's 86 tram route, we were able to just about squeeze all the bars and brewpubs we thought you should check out into the one article. But, such is Melbourne's growing appetite for craft beer, having one article for the country's…

Crafty Crawls: Richmond News

If Richmond had a nickname, it would 100 percent be “The Sporty Suburb”. This place has ties to practically every massive sporting event in Melbourne, from the AFL, rugby and soccer to the cricket, tennis and basically every other non-aquatic sport you can think of (although – fun fact: Richmond…

Crafty Crawls: Rozelle, Balmain and Barangaroo News

This crawl first takes you through the quiet leafy streets between pubs in Rozelle and Balmain and, as you find yourself gazing at pretty little terraces, you can almost smell the silk of the QCs and Scrooge McDuck style money silos of the merchant bankers who reside within. But it wasn’t always…

Crafty Crawls: Abbotsford News

As the home of CUB, Abbotsford’s association with beer comfortably stretches back more than a century. The brewery has long been a part of the suburb's story but, more recently, the beer choices in the suburb have grown increasingly diverse. Small breweries have increased the amount of local beer…

Crafty Crawls: Preston News

As soaring housing prices continue to cripple anyone hoping to own their own home, Melburnians are putting their roots down further and further away from the CBD. It's leading to the transformation of many areas of the city – often transformations that involve more cafés, bars and restaurants. And…

Crafty Crawls: Footscray News

Depending on who you listen to, Footscray is either a dangerous suburb riddled with heroin and meth, held hostage by gangs, a soon-to-happen real estate boom, or an uber-trendy hipster hangout.  Those that live there know it to be a tight knit community full of immigrants, families, and small business…

Crafty Crawls: Adelaide News

Of all the Australian capitals, Adelaide is arguably the most laid-back. Sure, there's the month between mid-February and mid-March into which the city crams enough festivals and major events to sustain thrill seekers well into winter. Yet, outside that period, things tend to be kept pretty simple and…

Crafty Crawls: South West WA Part I News

The South West of Western Australia is increasingly fertile ground for beer lovers. With so many breweries and good beer venues to explore, we set off for a weekend break down the coast to put together an extended Crafty Crawl featuring much of the best the region has to offer.  The article…

Crafty Crawls: Newtown News

The unfortunately and now incorrectly named suburb of Newtown is one of the few places in Sydney whose reputation precedes it. The area of Newtown was originally inhabited by the Cadigal tribe and set up for farming and residential estates during the early years of European colonisation.  In…

Crafty Crawls: Milton & Paddington News

For most Brisbanites, Milton used to be a place they only ever passed through en route to somewhere else, the only memorable landmark a large, creepy man in a hat constantly winking down at them. The inner-city warehouse district was more like the Platform 9 3/4 for lovers of ball sports (rather…

Crafty Crawls: Freo Beer-Ho! News

Footy aside, few Australian towns can boast as loudly as Fremantle. The historic port city was named in Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Destinations to Visit in 2016, Perth’s economic boom did nothing to dent its rustic charm (which really comes into its own under grey skies) and it famously kickstarted…

Crafty Crawls: Fitzroy News

As Melbourne’s oldest suburb, Fitzroy can likely lay claim to a history steeped in more beer than most other parts of Australia. From the moment the Gold Rush turned a British-controlled outpost into the wealthiest city in the world, Fitzroy became home to Melbourne’s working class for whom beer…

Crafty Crawls: Fortitude Valley News

Every city has a Fortitude Valley. It’s simultaneously the cultural hub of the city and the dodgy part of town your parents warned you about. It's pulsing with live music and street art and it's home to the greasiest kebabs you'll ever eat.  …

Crafty Crawls: Redfern News

Much like the Oriental rat flea and pestilence, good beer and gentrification go hand in hand. While this analogy is perfect in almost every way, a bubonic plague epidemic is unlikely to push local house prices north of one and a half million bucks, which is how it goes in the inner Sydney suburb of…

Crafty Crawls: Brisbane's Suburban Bars I News

Brisbane isn’t the sleepy little country town it used to be. Oh no, this place is a classifiable metropolis now, its inhabitants endowed with our own suburbs, traffic jams, frustratingly limited parking and public transport that services the CBD at times most convenient for office workers. One of…

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…

Crafty Crawls: The Hunter Valley News

It’s not all about wine up here these days, you know. World-renowned wine expert Jancis Robinson might once have said: “Semillon is Australia’s white wine gift to the world” – a comment that promptly put the Hunter Valley on the global wine map – but, according to one of the region’s…

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…

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…
