Glass House Brewery Brewer

Beer and pizza. It may be one of the greatest pairings of all time. Even if the pizza was average and the beer was mediocre, most of us would still find a way to enjoy it. So what about when the pizza is a 72 hour ferment traditional Italian style like Nonno used to make, and the the delicious beer…

Otherside Brewing Co Brewer

“What if we could ‘can’ this feeling?” That’s where Otherside Brewing Co started out: surrounded by the noise, sunshine, energy and shared experience of the summer festival season, something upon which the brewery’s owners had built a very successful career. Within two years of being…

Cupitt Craft Brewers Brewer

There are few breweries in New South Wales where you’ll be so well rewarded for the simple act of arriving. Being on the outskirts of Ulladulla it can take a while to get here, wherever you’re coming from. You’ll be fully compensated for your journey. As you approach along unpainted roads then…

Bulli Brewing Co Brewer

It’s worth making one thing clear from the off: the Bulli Brewing Company is not, in fact, in Bulli. That was the original plan, to set up shop in the self proclaimed ‘Black Diamond District’, a few kilometres north of Wollongong. But hope has a habit of being harpooned whenever it concerns the…

Your Mates Brewing Brewer

It’s the age old story. Mate meets mate. Mate dreams about making beer for the Sunshine Coast with mate. Mate opens brewery that serves up rippin’ brews with mate. At least, that’s the story of Hep and McGarry, the duo behind Your Mates Brewing. Perhaps you heard of them when they started gypsy…

CoConspirators Brewing Brewer

Conspiracy theories have long marched hand and hand with human history. Whenever impressive or outrageous feats take place, there’s likely to be people eager to offer their own hot take on what exactly went down. And, as social media has made ever greater inroads into our everyday lives, conspiracies…

Burnley Brewing Brewer

Back when they were at university together, Neil Mills and Phil Gijsbers decided to start a café. It’s an unusual brewery origin story but, then again, Burnley Brewery is a little unusual. In the years that followed, Phil started a few more cafés and Neil eventually ended up entering the world…

Five Barrel Brewing Brewer

Wollongong is a changing city. Built on the blue collars of smelting and heavy manufacturing, those industries that bought middle class prosperity are in decline, though hardly dead yet; you can still catch a whiff of them each time the open coal carriages roll through town or the smoke stacks of the…

Philter Brewing Brewer

Few breweries have burst onto the craft beer scene quite as triumphantly as Philter. A mere four months into existence, with only two beers to its name, the brewing company took home one of the most coveted titles in Australian beer – Champion Pale Ale at the 2017 Craft Beer Awards. It turned out the…

St Andrews Beach Brewery Brewer

In a country in which craft beer continues its seemingly inexorable rise, breweries are beginning to appear in all manner of unlikely spots. While reimagining an old warehouse in an industrial corner of town still seems to be the primary mode of transformation, beer tourists can discover much else on…

Liquor Shed Bottleshop

It began with a potato. No, seriously. Stick with us, as it’s hard to tell the story of the Liquor Shed without talking about potatoes. Why? Because the parent operation that began next door to the cavernous Jandakot retailer is the Spud Shed, a large scale, “farm to customer”…

The Carringbush Hotel Venue

In a part of Melbourne awash with pubs pouring good beer, the Carringbush Hotel still holds a special place in the history pages of the city’s inner north. It might not be the oldest boozer in the area but it does share a name inherently linked with Abbotsford. Carringbush was the term given by…

The Park Hotel Abbotsford Venue

Since it first opened in 1864, both the Park Hotel and its home suburb of Abbotsford have gone through many incarnations. When the pub first welcomed drinker through its doors and started pouring beer, it was at the height of Victoria’s gold rush, a period that saw Abbotsford rapidly transition from…

The Silverlake Social Venue

America is, in many ways, not one country but many. With 50 states spread across most of a continent, it’s a place where myriad accents, cuisines and voting preferences all somehow manage to coalesce into a single country that works. Most of the time anyway. Even within states, those differences can…

Bottlemart Margate Bottleshop

It’s a bottleshop in a shopping centre – not traditionally the sort of place you’d expect to find shelf upon shelf of beers from across the country, let alone imperial stouts from America, fruited Berliner Weisse from New Zealand, and Trappist tripels from Belgium. It’s also in Margate, a coastal…

Masterson's Bar Venue

Besides Dame Edna, when Moonee Ponds is mentioned the mind often turns to gambling. The suburb’s sprawling racing track has been synonymous with the area since the 19th century, back when the suburb was a strip of farmland on Melbourne’s edge. While it would be easy to draw a link between Melbourne’s…

Captain Melville Venue

His exploits may not have led to the sort of national obsession afforded fellow bushranger Ned Kelly, yet there was a time when Francis Melville’s life certainly captured the imagination of the young colony. The self-titled “Captain” spent much of his career as a bushranger pretending to be a gentleman…

The Dan O'Connell Venue

Named after one of Ireland’s most famous political figures, the eponymous Dan O’Connell Hotel also happens to be one of Melbourne’s best known Irish pubs. Located in Carlton, where Canning and Princes Street meet, the 19th century pub rises from its corner block, with its old brick veneer…

Porters Liquor Ryde (Midway Cellars) Bottleshop

When Midway Cellars first opened its doors in 1978, not only did craft beer as we now know it not exist, it would be another couple of decades before Australia would even get its first widely available American style pale ale. Fortunately for punters in modern day Denistone East, Ryde and surrounds,…

The Horse Venue

If you want something nice inside you, Surry Hills is an excellent place to go to get it. As the constant thrum of people on its main streets will tell you, the suburb is one of Sydney’s best when it comes to drinking and dining; from the early morning coffee queues to late night lines for gelato,…

Capital Brewing Hang Loose Juice Blood Orange NEIPA Beer

Sometimes you just can't keep a good thing down. Particularly when it's a hazy IPA in the current climate. This beer first appeared as a one-off collab between Capital and Royal Blood when the band was in Australia for the Groovin' The Moo festival series in 2018. It stood out from many band collabs,…

Nomad Brewing Surfside Lager Beer

If you were asked to pick a defining thread that runs through the brewing history of Nomad, you'd likely plump for their fondness for showcasing native ingredients. Or maybe you'd go for their love of collaborating. Certainly, while they've released a few pale ales of a more line and length nature over…

Bodriggy Brewing Space Milk Vol. 3 Beer

Bodriggy’s Space Milk series is now a trilogy with the release of a lactose sour that might feature the Abbotsford brewery's most unusual collection of ingredients yet. Following on from the lactose-sour-pineapple-lime-cayenne pepper offering, Bodriggy has returned with a Cashmere-hopped soursop, alphonso…

Ballistic Beer Co SHIPA: Simcoe Beer

Having worked its way through the likes of Centennial, El Dorado, Enigma and the somewhat more exotic Pekko and Fortnight, Ballistic Brewing Co’s ongoing Single Hop IPA series has worked its way around to West Coast IPA workhorse Simcoe. On the nose the Simcoe SHIPA is vaguely citrusy and (significantly…

Brewhouse Margaret River Sour and the Passion Beer

Brewhouse Margaret River can fly a little under the radar in the craft beer world, but that isn't to say they're not holding their own against the other brewers in the South West of WA; their on premise sales are significant and they've done a great job in capturing the family market in a region drowning…

Otherside Brewing Pilot Series: Distortion Kettle Sour Beer

In an earlier version, Distortion was a liquid resume that brewer Andrew Skipp provided as part of his interview with Otherside. Given Skipp got the job, the beer must have made quite the impression and now the beer has made its way from homebrew to commercial release. Part of their Pilot Series of…

Glass House Brewery Red IPA Beer

Light shines through this beer with ruby brilliance, and the firm head boasts its stalwartness. This is not a "knock back a few pints" kind of beer. Drinking this is like drinking tree sap. Like tapping a tree, and drinking what comes out. Like hammering a spile (yes I had to look that up) into a pine…

Glass House Brewery Black Lager Beer

You might’ve heard the phrase "a beer for all seasons". How about a beer that’s flexible, and able to shift with the seasons? The idea for Glass House’s Czech-inspired Black Lager is for the recipe to be tweaked, and drift along the flavour spectrum as the weather changes: in summer, it will be…

Glass House Brewery Organic Saison Beer

In a precinct where the produce is organic, the meat is organic, and even the hair salon is organic, it makes sense for Glass House to serve up an organic beer. Meet the Organic Saison. While some breweries make their saisons hefty, sneaking up to six or seven percent ABV, Glass House was intent on…

Glass House Brewery Pale Beer

The modern Australian pale ale has all but become a staple for Aussie breweries, generally featuring the iconic Galaxy in its hop bill. (We can thank Stone & Wood for laying this foundation, in a similar way that Sierra Nevada led the charge on their side of the Pacific.) Glass House’s Pale meets…

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…

Otherside Get Social News

Plenty of grand plans have been hatched at music festivals over the years, but few come to fruition in the cold light of day. Fewer still come to life to anything like the extent of that envisaged by the Otherside team when they decided to "bottle this feeling" at their own music…

Now That's Good Drinking News

“Alcohol is a great conversation starter. How often when you're enjoying a drink with a friend or stranger do you start solving the problems of the world?”Agi Gajic, Sparkke For years, philosophers have grappled with the question: What makes a beer a good beer? (If this doesn’t sound true…

In Memoriam: Benji Bullen News

This weekend sees the team at KAIJU! host a fundraiser for Beyond Blue at the brewery. The event is in honour of a beer lover, rep and barman who took his own life late last year. Here, KAIJU! co-owner Callum Reeves pays tribute to Benji Bullen. Nat and I met Benji Bullen when we were just…

The Big Issue: Withdrawing The Line News

The last six months have seen a clutch of beers and ciders taken off shelves across Australia for quality-related issues. In November last year, Newstead’s Johnno Apple Cider was recalled due to concerns that secondary fermentation might cause cans to burst, a process Moon Dog then went through in…

Women In Drinks News

"Women in drinks are not an anomaly or a quirk – we are a very real part of this industry…"Jayne Lewis – Two Birds Brewing Most of us look forward to the day when conversations about gender in the craft beer industry are no longer necessary when gender – along with sexuality, race,…

Kveik – Something Old, Something New News

You may have heard of this mysterious Norwegian brewing ingredient already. If you haven’t, you likely will soon. But just what is “super-yeast” kveik? Is it true it can fully ferment a beer in 36 hours? Is it somehow related to kriek, the cherry lambics originating in Belgium? Can it really…

Hopping Into The Wild News

Matt and Ali Scott-Malcolm come across as a relaxed, cheerful and enthusiastic couple. In fact, such is their demeanour, you'd have little reason to suspect they've just opened one of WA's most highly anticipated beer venues. Yet the long-time Yallingup locals have done exactly that,…

Craft Beer Heroes: Marty Keetels News

It's not too much to ask is it: a hoppy beer while watching a band? As much as craft beer continues to make inroads into everyday parts of our lives, music festivals – particularly the big one-dayers – still tend to serve up pretty poor choices when it comes to what's…

Who Brews One Drop Beers? News

As breweries continue to pop up across Sydney, it's becoming increasingly easy to pinpoint the areas of the Harbour City that are becoming craft beer destinations. The inner west may hold the title of city's craftiest spot but even Sydney's CBD is turning into a place where you can happily spend…

Brew With A View News

We hear plenty of stories of breweries growing in leaps and bounds, building huge production facilities, forging partnerships and making an impact on a national scale. On the flip side, we hear the occasional story of brewing companies or venues going under. But we hear far less about the quiet…

Canned Laughter News

It was a pun that had to be, a punchline that was waiting to happen as the beer world moves inexorably from bottles to cans and brewers strike up partnerships outside craft beer's original stomping grounds. It's Canned Laughter, the result of Newstead Brewing's latest collaboration with a major organisation…

Brew & A: Jack Beavis of Woolshed Brewery News

The Woolshed Brewery occupies an enviable spot on the banks of the Murray. For close to a decade – this August marks ten years since the first brew – it has been watering locals as well as visitors to the Riverland region of South Australia. Jack Beavis is the man responsible for most of…

Beer Nuts: Ode To The Road News

Australia's vast, wild and untamed countryside has long acted as a magnet that encourages exploration and expeditions.  For the earliest white explorers, those journeys could last a far shorter time than planned and leave a far smaller number of explorers by the end. Today, caravans,…

Blues Band Blazing BBQ Beaut BeerTonight at 7pm Live music, seared red meat and a hoppy beer: it’s a winning combination. It’s also a reasonably common one, so you might think the above tweet could have come from one of the myriad American-style BBQ joints across the country. Or, perhaps, a…

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.
