Coburg Brewing Co Brewer

Coburg Brewing Co’s journey to find a home for their brewery has been a long and winding one; so long and winding in fact it took the brewing company’s founders right back to where they started. When you hail from many generations of publicans, it’s hard to even pick a date on which to start,…

Sanctus Brewing Company Brewer

There’s a quote attributed to Ben Franklin: “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy”. As it turns out, Ben Franklin never said that; the real quote was sort of about wine, but mostly about rain on vineyards. However, many of us can agree with the cheeky sentiment behind the…

Atomic Beer Project Brewer

Atomic is a name that will be familiar to many in the local beer world – and with good reason. An American style pale ale bearing that name was debuted by Gage Roads so long ago in craft beer years it predates almost the entire modern day industry in Australia. And, like the Australian beer world that…

Urban Alley Brewery Brewer

Early in 2016, a beer called Once Bitter Urban Ale first appeared in bars across Melbourne under the Collins Street Brewing banner. It was the first release from a brewing company created by Ze'ev Meltzer, who'd decided it was time to start leaving the corporate life behind and switch focus. The journey…

Mismatch Brewing Co Brewer

Bringing together a bunch of seemingly mismatched people to start a business might not seem the smartest of ideas. But take a look at where Mismatch Brewing Company – and its associated operations – sits today and you’d have to conclude the founders were onto a good thing. Mismatched they might…

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…

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…

Brewmanity Brewer

The diversity in the backgrounds of those getting involved in the craft beer industry in Australia is a sure sign of its growing popularity and reach.

The brewery’s beers have gone from strength to strength, and anyone who’s been to the brewery and cellar door in Salisbury can attest to the sheer delight of being surrounded by Ballistic’s…

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. That shift does not stop at the threshold of a bottleshop either. As a result, a number of beer stores have extended…

Sailors Grave Dark Emu Dark Lager Beer

Gab and Chris Moore at Sailors Grave have collaborated with many people and in may ways over their relatively short existence to date. Yet this project with Bruce Pascoe – which we wrote about [here](https://craftypint.com/news/2511/dark-emu-telling-stories-with-beer) – is one that's particularly…

Bridge Road NEeD IPA Vol.1: Double Hazy Beer

Screw the preamble. Bridge Road are starting a new IPA program, and the first tinnie off the line has gone off like a stick of dynamite in a fruit stand – it’s packing Mosaic, Galaxy and El Dorado hops, as well as Sabro hops two ways. Glowing gold with a sea foam head, the Hazy Double hits the…

Tallboy And Moose Nice Cola & TDH Miasma Beer

Tallboy and Moose may be busy back welcoming people inside their Preston brewpub - or outside, in the case of their driveway-based beer garden - but they’ve also kept cans flying out into the world too. The brewery’s two November releases are returning recipes, though both have undergone a few changes…

Wolf of the Willows & The Gospel Persistence Beer

Resilience is a word that's been bandied about a lot in 2020, along with pivot, unprecedented and oh, for fuck's sake (OK, that last one is a phrase rather than a word, but you catch my drift). You have to feel that, as we in Australia look to be coming out of the darkness and into the light, persistence…

Van Dieman Elderflower, Wild Nectar & Fence Line Beer

If there's one thing this trio of Australian spontaneous ales from Van Dieman suggests, it's there's something of a house – or should that be farm – character developing among the gently undulating fields south of Launceston. While there are distinctions to be drawn, despite the different methods…

Coburg Brewing Co Son Of A Gun IPA Beer

There’s a lot of IPAs out there but few in modern Australian beer circles are like Son of a Gun from Coburg Brewing. Often it’s all about the American, Australian and Kiwi hops and keeping things as pale and – increasingly – as hazy as possible. Son of a Gun, on the other hand, might contain…

Coburg Brewing Co Coburg Lager Beer

Coburg Lager is the beer that kickstarted the Coburg Brewing Co’s story and it’s a classic in more ways than one. First off, there’s the look of the label design, which manages to bring to mind both a suburban footy team’s jersey and the labels you would have found hugging local lagers decades…

Ten Years Of Crafty: In Ten(ish) Beers News

When I first got in contact with James Smith in early 2017 to apply to write for The Crafty Pint, we agreed to meet up at a beer event to chat.

Postcards from the Edge No.50: Pivoting Properly News

Pivot: it’s a word used so often during this pandemic that when this is all over it’s probably one that should be struck from all dictionaries.
