Newstead Brewing [working title] Solera Stout 2019 Beer

Essentially, what happens is the product is aged in a barrel and then…

Newstead Brewing [working title] Zoo V.8 Beer

Not every brewery can get on board with a barrel program. They’re expensive, unpredictable and take up space that could be jammed full of tanks full of three-week-old DDH hazy IPAs.

Newstead & Brisbane Distillery Company Juniper Juice Beer

When it comes to gin and juice, who did it better: Snoop Dogg, Lou Bega, or Newstead Brewing?

Newstead, however, put their money where…

Newstead Brewing The Doors Of Perception Beer

It’s inspiration all the way down, starting with Aldous Huxley’s mind-bending adventures on mescaline that led him to write The Doors of Perception, from which the band The Doors later drew their name, and now, a few decades on, sees Newstead borrowing the title for this dark fruit sour. Pouring…
