King Road Brewing Co Brewer

Given it was founded by Dave and Bev McKee, their children Chad and Selena and their respective partners Maria and Dale, King Road Brewing Co was always going to be a family-friendly venue. Many set out with aspirations to create such a place, however the sheer scale of the brewery, the venue and its…

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…

Jetty Road Brewer

Whether your first encounter with Jetty Road is walking into their highly impressive brewery venue in Dromana or picking up a pack of their beers, complete with its sleek and polished branding, you might well conclude Jetty Road arrived in the world fully formed, the result of calculated planning and…

Westside Ale Works Brewer

Festina tarde is an Italian saying – often associated with the Renaissance but also used by Roman rulers – that translates as "make haste slowly". By all means, hurry, but don't rush things, and take care too. Westside Ale Works' story is one of “hurrying slowly”. It started in 2016, when…

Fury & Son Brewer

We won't lie. When we first saw there was a new brewing company set to start up in Melbourne going by the name Fury & Son, our initial thought was that it could be some hipster brand. Fury & Son: it seemed to possess an air befitting the sort of tattoo, barber and gentleman's outfitters salon you can…

Nomad Brewing Brewer

When you hear the word “nomad”, what do you think of? A nomadic tribe wandering across a desert with a caravan of camels in tow? Grey nomads crossing the Nullarbor in a caravan, collecting souvenir teaspoons along the way? Or an independent brewery that was conceived in Italy, has a head brewer from…

Cheeky Monkey Brewer

It's not uncommon in the beer world for prospective brewery owners to experience delays. In fact, when someone tells you they're planning to open a brewery in six months it pays to add on another six. At least. Yet, for all the delays faced by breweries across the land, few - if any - can have experienced…

Van Dieman Brewer

A few years back, Will Tatchell departed Tasmania to take up a brewing job at Guinness in Ireland.

Tippler's Tap Fortitude Valley Venue

James Street in Fortitude Valley is a classy precinct.

But no longer – now we head straight to Tippler’s Tap.  This…

Burnley Brewing Smoked IPA Beer

Back when Melburnians were still allowed to gather socially – back in 2019, which at the time seemed like a pretty shitty year on a global scale but now looks like the Garden of Eden pre-snake – East of Everything asked brewers to make a beer to be matched with an album for their Good Beer Week event.…

Molly Rose Brewing Baroness & Nitro Persian Coffee Beer

Apparently there's a small army of funky and barrel-aged bottle releases coming any day now from Molly Rose so we'd best get to these two tinnies first. One, **Baroness**, comes with a coloured label, which to this point has indicated a year round release; here, we're told it's just a wider limited release,…

King Road Brewing Co Pale Beer

In keeping with King Road’s approachable New World leanings, their Pale has beer nudged from a classic American articulation into the tropical realm with some help from Amarillo and Citra hops. A fleeting light caramel malt sweetness is balanced by a moreish bitterness and a dry coda. Here, pint-sized…

King Road Brewing Co Mid Beer

A hybrid of American session IPA and English bitter, King Road’s Mid arrives with more modern flair than most beers of its ilk, not that the hordes that descend on the venue each weekend will necessarily notice. It’s an inspired trick in which the lone low ABV offering is subtly stretching palates…

King Road Brewing Co Pilsner Beer

Reinheitsgebot, schmeitsgebot! Sure, you can stick to the proclamations of a 16th century Duke or you can get with the times, while still respecting what has come before. Purists, fear not, however: this isn’t a lactose infused nor lacto soured pilsner, even if King Road have shown modern savvy…

King Road Brewing Co Lager Beer

Van Dieman Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush Beer

What is the world coming to? A fruited sour from Van Dieman in which I don't have to look up the name of the fruit to find out what it is – whatever next? After releases featuring rarities such as medlar and greengage, this time around Will Tatchell looks to lead us a merry dance with mulberries.…

Mountain Goat Rare Breed: Barrel-Aged Blended Porter Beer

Westside Ale Works Weekend Juice & Major Revision & Ryes N' Shine Beer

Brewer Be-Guiled News

All our weekends look a little different now.

Best New NSW Beers Of 2019 News

Well, that’s that. Another decade down the bloody gurgler. Except in New South Wales’ case: if we were to make this metaphor more accurate, there isn’t enough water left to carry this ten year stretch down any kind of plughole, let alone to emit any gurgle-like sound. Oh, and the sink is also on…
