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…

Pumpyard Bar & Brewery / Dovetails Restaurant Venue

On the corner of Limestone and Ellenborough Streets is a complex of stately red brick buildings. These heritage listed behemoths were built a century ago to house the Technical College, but they’re now a precinct offering some of the best food and drink in Ipswich. Walking between these tall buildings…

Helsby's Ale House Venue

However you look at it, 150 years is a long time for a hotel to be open. Certainly, it’s longer than most of us have been alive. Given the Pineapple Hotel opened in 1864, making it the fifth oldest license in Queensland, it’s been a watering hole in the fair city of Brisbane for longer than you…

4 Hearts De Honing Belgian Blonde Beer

This beer came about serendipitously. When the brewer found some leftover Belgian yeast in the fridge, he decided to make a Belgian Blonde. When he heard that there were beehives on top of Newstead Brewing (yes really), he decided to make a Belgian Blonde with honey. (No bonus points for guessing what…

Ballistic Beer Co Putin's Revenge Beer

When it comes to making superb beers, you can always count on Ballistic to Putin the effort. (Oh God, he went there...) Released at the launch of Ballistic Beer’s new alehouse in West End, Putin’s Revenge is a force to be reckoned with. The dense, creamy head is so inviting… but will betray…

Black Hops Lay Day Lager Beer

Looks like a white wine; smells like a tropical pale ale; tastes like a flavoursome lager. The folk at Black Hops have merged the widespread love of tropical hops and the clean sessionability of a well made lager. It’s super clear, looking similar to clarified apple juice or a crisp white wine.…

Ballistic Beer Co India Brown Ale Beer

In a similar vein to Stone’s "Enjoy By" series, Ballistic’s "Sleep When You’re Dead" range is all about hoppy beers that don’t get the chance to lose their freshness. They’re packed full of hops, then cold shipped and sold in a hurry. Instead of having a BEST BEFORE date, they’re stamped…

Ballistic Beer Co Centennial Single Hop IPA Beer

Another day, another single hop IPA from Ballistic. After introducing us to Fortnight and Pekko unencumbered by any additional hops, this time they’ve gone with a more familiar variety: Centennial. The aroma is big and bright, enveloping you in an intoxicating fragrance of super ripe fruit and fruit…

Green Beacon Siren Song Beer

"Steer clear of the Sirens, their enchanting song, their meadow starred with flowers. Race straight past that coast! If you are bent on hearing, have your shipmates tie you hand and foot, lashed by ropes to the mast, so you can hear the Sirens’ song to your heart’s content…" So the goddess Circe…

Green Beacon Barbary Coast 2018 Beer

Barbary Coast has been through a few iterations over the years, but the 2018 version may be the tastiest one yet. Whether you prefer to call it a Black IPA, a Cascadian Dark Ale, or an India Black Ale, just know this: it looks dark but, if you close your eyes, you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’re…

Stone & Wood & Brewsvegas & OzHarvest Hoppy Potato Ale Beer

The humble spud gives us so many wonderful foods – chips, wedges, gems, hash browns, mash, loaded spuds, crisps... even vodka if, for some reason, that's your thing. And now it's given us the Hoppy Potato Ale. It's the official beer of Brewsvegas 2018, Brisbane’s weeklong, citywide celebration…

Newstead Brewing The Ballymore Queensland Lager Beer

Think of the last time you went to the rugby – or just about any sporting event, for that matter. You went to watch the game, but it’s never just about the game. You wanted to get caught up in the buzz, the atmosphere, the excitement of it all. So you brought your mates, you wore your team colours,…

Brisbane Brewing Collective BNEIPA Beer

Australia saw a lot of New England style IPAs release in 2017, with 90 percent seemingly using the words "juice" or "crazy lazy hazy Swayze" in the title. It makes sense, given NEIPAs are known for their juiciness and for looking like a hazy glass of orange juice. But, when ten Brisbane breweries join…

Crafty Crawls: Brisbane's West End News

Folks, this edition of our Crafty Crawls series is an easy sell. One of the easiest, some would argue. West End has long been a destination for Brisbane craft beer drinkers, ever since Archive Beer Boutique opened its doors in 2011. Now? Well, there’s never been a better time to descend…

Felons To Storm Brisbane News

In 1823, after a month lost at sea, a few convicts stumbled upon what is now the Brisbane River: tired, hungry and, most of all, thirsty. A riverside brewery would have been just the thing to lift their spirits, but, alas, they were 200 years too early. As of October 2018, however, people down at the…

Crafty Crawls: South Brisbane & Beyond News

South East Queensland has an overabundance of fun. Apparently, Dreamworld, North Stradbroke and Brisbane BBQ Festival are all "Too much fun for just one day". Clearly, we’ll be overwhelmed if we’re not careful.  (As an aside, the state of Ohio also claims to be "Too much fun for just one…

Starting A Brewery: Brisbane's New Kids News

At this year's Australian International Beer Awards, much like last year's, one of the big winners of the night was Queensland. Gold Coast based Black Hops Brewing and Brisbane's Green Beacon took out Champion Small Australian Brewery and Champion Medium Brewery respectively while a truckload…

Brewing By Design News

The growing number of excellent breweries found in Australia these days sets a high bar for any newcomer to the scene. So, how do you stand out? How do you have a truly fresh feel? Having spent time with the new Brisbane brewery's founders, Mick Wust reckons the team at Range…

Semi-Pro. But Not Half-Arsed News

In a world where banks say they want to be your friend, fast food companies pretend they’ll help your family be healthy, and supermarket-owned beers come with artsy hand drawn labels, it's easy to grow cynical. So, when you hear the name Semi-Pro Brewing Co, one can’t help but be skeptical: is…

Craft Beer Heroes: Les Riddell News

In the comic book world, there are two kinds of heroes.  There are the big impressive heroes who show up, save the world, and go home (think The Avengers). And then there are the heroes who deal with things where they live (think Daredevil and Spiderman).  They don’t save the world.…

Crafty Crawls: New Farm, Teneriffe & Newstead News

No one knows where New Farm ends and Teneriffe begins or, indeed, where Teneriffe ends and Newstead begins. We all just vibe it, and use eeny-meeny-miney-mo if we have to write down an address. But, when it comes to good beer crawls in Brisbane, most Brisbanites agree that New Farm/Teneriffe/Newstead…

Best New Queensland Beers Of 2017 News

Queenslanders are notorious for their copious beer consumption. But no longer are they all content to stick to monochromatic cans and decals (and flavours). Now, they cry for something other than just volume – they cry for quality, variety and innovation. New breweries are popping up faster…

All Inn Goes All Out News

Gather round, people, and let us tell you a tale of court characters, cans and corrugated iron... In 2012, Harley Goodacre had a vision. He took a corrugated iron warehouse in the Brisbane suburb of Banyo, rewired the joint, put in a new floor, built a cool-room and installed a 20 hectolitre…

Archer Takes Off News

It’s a brewery! It’s a plane! It’s... Well, it’s a brewery with a plane in the logo. After receiving a very warm welcome at their debut appearance at Beer InCider, the aviation-themed Archer Brewing is now officially up and running, with a trickle of venues snapping up the first available…

Aussie Beer Blogs: Schoonerversity News

When it comes down to it, for all the experimentation, history, science, artistry and so on that goes into making the beer world so fun and fascinating, it is, at the end of the day, all centred around a liquid that can make us feel pleasure. And that's pretty much the sole reason Mick Wust decided…
