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…

Newstead Brewing Eleanor Reloaded Harvest IPL Beer

Harvest time gives brewers a once-in-a-year opportunity to use freshly picked, wet hops in their beers. In doing so again in 2019, Newstead have come up with brew that nods to local history through both the name and the can design. The Eleanor of the title is Dr Eleanor Schonell, after whom Brisbane's…

Newstead Brewing & Brisbane Powerhouse Transducer Beer

Newstead continue to forge partnerships with a diverse range of Queensland organisations, with Transducer brewed with the Brisbane Powerhouse and coming on the back of collaborations with the likes of Queensland Rugby Union, the Brisbane Comedy Festival, Alliance Airlines and Surf Life Saving Queensland.…

Newstead Brewing & KAIJU! Butterfly Effect Beer

KAIJU! were the first of many collaborative partners for Brisbane's Newstead and have been at it again, this time using the former's Milton site for the first time to create the heavily hop-driven Butterfly Effect. While labelled a double IPA, it's based on an American wheat ale, albeit one that's been…

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…

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…

Beer Travel: 48 Hours In Rome News

It’s the eternal city, and it wasn’t built in a day. All roads lead there, and Nero fiddled while it burned. There may be more sayings about Rome than any other city, and for good reason – it used to be known as the capital of the world.  It’s arguably the most beautiful city in the world…

Crafty Crawls: Melbourne CBD – North News

It wasn’t long ago that only a small handful of bars genuinely championed craft beer inside Melbourne’s iconic (well maybe not iconic but certainly very practically designed) Hoddle Grid. As recently as 2016 when we published our first Crafty Crawl guide to Melbourne’s CBD…

Crafty Crawls: Melbourne CBD – South News

Back in 2016, when we published our first Crafty Crawl guide to the best beery spots in Melbourne's CBD, we wrote: "you may not know that the pipes in Melbourne CBD are slowly but surely filling with craft beer."  Three years on and "slowly but surely" has increased in pace somewhat as a…

The (Pint of) Origin Story News

The beginnings were pretty inauspicious. Grumblings from some in the Sydney beer scene about Melbourne getting all the good stuff following the surprise success of the first Good Beer Week got me thinking.  "How can we make it easy for brewers all over the country to get involved…

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…

Crafty Crawls: Wollongong News

When it comes to the history of craft beer in Australia, Wollongong always gets overlooked. When people want to talk about the breweries that helped drive craft beer since the turn of the Millennium, they’ll throw out names like Mountain Goat, Feral and Little Creatures. But you’ll never hear…

Crafty Crawls: Petersham News

The slowly gentrifying, Inner West suburb of Petersham is home to a great number of classic pubs, many of which have stood for decades. Only recently have a few of these embraced craft beer, spurred by the growth of breweries and bars in the surrounding suburbs of Marrickville and Newtown.  No…

Aussie Beerstagrammers: Brunswick Beer Collective News

In what’s become an extension of The City Lane, an online travel, food and culture magazine, the Brunswick Beer Collective have been podcasting about beer and not-beer for the past four years, mostly from The Alehouse Project in, you guessed it, Brunswick, Melbourne. Aside from the banter, they also…

Crafty Crawls: North By North East News

Unless you've been living on a remote island free from any form of outside communication, you'll be well aware the craft beer revolution has not so much descended on Brisbane as started to devour it whole.  The past few years have given rise to a haven of breweries, crafty bottleshops…

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

The results of the third GABS Hottest 100 Kiwi Beers were announced at the weekend. Our Man In NZ, Jono Galuszka, spoke to some of the people making the stories in this year's poll. McLeod's The scent of hazy hoppy things has truly entranced New Zealand beer drinkers, with the broad style making…

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…

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,…

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.
