Colonial Brewing Co Port Melbourne Brewer

The Colonial Brewing story is one that can be neatly viewed in two parts – parts that are equally neatly centred on each coast of Australia. Part one began in the West, way back in 2004 when "craft beer" wasn't even a phrase used by those brewing it, while part two has at its heart this brewery and…

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…

White Brick Brewing Brewer

Brisbanites are notoriously unwilling to travel to get anywhere. Apart from commuting, most people resist driving more than 15 minutes to get somewhere – if it’s farther away than that, it’s too much hassle. (Sorry, Grandma.) And, as the population keeps sprawling outwards, more people are…

Shedshaker Brewing Brewer

Long ago, Castlemaine’s claim to fame was the local abundance of two valuable resources: gold and beer. Despite the town retaining so many of its historical buildings, those particular reasons for being had long since gone; the gold had all been mined and the last brewery closed its doors in 1925. Prior…

Mr Banks Brewing Co Brewer

Back in 2016, beers bearing the name Mr Banks started appearing across the Mornington Peninsula and in a handful of Melbourne venues. While the appearance of new breweries is pretty commonplace these days, it did raise one question: who was Mr Banks? Was he the guy on the side of the cans? Was he the…

Sailors Grave Brewing Brewer

Sometimes, even with hindsight, it's hard to work out why some things catch one's eye more than others. Case in point being Sailors Grave Brewing. The Orbost brewery first came to our attention when we spotted a regional newspaper article on Chris and Gab Moore's plans to open a brewery in an historic,…

Tallboy and Moose Brewer

Quite often when you ask a brewery where the inspiration for the name came from, it’s a throwback to their beery roots or a pun built on the foundation of brewing. For Dan Hall and Steve Germain of Tallboy and Moose, their inspiration becomes instantly apparent upon meeting. Yet, despite Dan’s…

Bandicoot Brewing Brewer

As if launching the first genuine brewery in decades in the popular riverside town of Echuca wasn't enough to catch people's attention, the couple behind Bandicoot Brewing had a unique trick up their sleeves.

Hops To Home Bottleshop

The nature of commerce in the 21st century is that people can now get their chosen vice – whether it be shoes, books, scented candles, or even animal shaped onesies – over the internet.

Wayward Brewing Juicy Boy Pineapple Orange Gose Beer

Sailors Grave My Little Juicy Farmhouse Beer

When someone uses the phrase, "You can't judge a book by its cover" it's usually to suggest you'll find more depth and complexity once you dig beneath the surface.
