Deeds Brewing Brewer

When Deeds Brewing fired up their Glen Iris brewhouse in the first half of 2019, it was the end of a long journey for Pat Alé and Dave Milstein. The seeds of the idea to build a brewery together had first been planted way back in 2003 when they attended university together and started spitballing…

Eumundi Brewery Brewer

For a small town in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, Eumundi’s name is surprisingly well known. People come from far and wide for its massive twice-weekly markets, where vivid artworks, handcrafted textiles, sustainable goods and alternative remedies are available as far as the eye can see. The artistic…

Reub Goldberg Brewing Machine Brewer

An epic cycling trip from Alaska to Costa Rica, visiting 150 breweries along the way, was all it took to convince partners Billy Barneston and Anna Suthers to start a brewery of their own. Travelling more than 9,000 kilometres through nine countries provided them not only with an impressive amount of…

Heads of Noosa Brewing Co Brewer

When it comes to attracting attention from afar, Noosa seems to be the star of the Sunshine Coast. People visit from all over to ride the barrels and breaks of the enviable swell, or to cruise down the river at a lazy pace; some soak in all of the boutique shopping and gourmet cuisine and pumping nightlife…

One Drop Brewing Co Brewer

2019 is the postcode for Botany, in Sydney. It’s fitting it’s also the year Botany landed its first brewery: One Drop Brewing Co. Until then, Botany locals - such as owners Clay and Meg - had often needed to look outside of the sleepy suburb for a good time. “There wasn't much to do in Botany,”…

Ogdens Brewery Brewer

The Ogden name will be familiar to many Western Australian drinkers. The family has enjoyed a long association with iconic hotels in and around Perth for generations – and now they have a closer connection to beer than ever before. At the start of 2019, the first beers bearing the Ogden name were…

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…

Hemingway's Brewery, Cairns Wharf Brewer

It didn’t take long for Hemingway’s Brewery co-owners Tony Fyfe and Craig Parsell to start thinking of duplicating the concept once they’d opened their idyllically positioned Port Douglas brewpub at the Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina in July. The plan was to take their gastro brewpub model to…

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…

Wilson Brewing Co Brewer

There's a fair few Australian breweries that have been around longer than Wilson Brewing that also take the name of their owner. Yet we're not sure we've come across one that is even close to being an extension of its owner quite like this Albany operation. It was launched by Matty and Jessica Wilson…

Yakima Chief Hops

As a 100 percent grower-owned network of family hop farms, Yakima Chief Hops™ are uniquely positioned to establish strong relationships between the growers who supply the premium hops and the innovative brewing customers who showcase the product in their excellent beers.  With a…

Small Batch Venue

For most breweries, the opening of a second venue is typically an opportunity to drastically increase production capacity and widen distribution. But Batch Brewing Company isn’t like most breweries. The motivation for their second site, which opened in Petersham in mid-2019, is completely the opposite.  Rather…

Freo.Social Venue

Otherside Brewing Co’s Myaree production facility may be where most of the brewing magic happens but sibling venue Freo.Social, part of the Triple 1 Three hospitality group, is where the party starts. Given the Otherside project was originally conceived as a means of “bottling the feeling” of being…

The Oxford Tavern VenueBottleshop

When a local pub is referred to more commonly by a nickname than its actual name, it’s a good sign it has thoroughly cemented itself in the hearts and minds of locals. That’s certainly true for The Oxford Tavern – better known as “The Tav” – which has sat on the corner of one of Petersham’s…

Bottle House Balaclava Bottleshop

When a couple of mates opened Bottle House back in 2011, their focus was firmly fixed on providing those who walked inside with ample opportunity to find the perfect bottle of wine for any occasion. A stone’s throw from South Yarra train station, Bottle House soon became one of those essential stops…

Bottle House South Yarra Bottleshop

When a couple of mates opened Bottle House back in 2011, their focus was firmly fixed on providing those who walked inside with ample opportunity to find the perfect bottle of wine for any occasion. A stone’s throw from South Yarra train station, Bottle House soon became one of those essential stops…

Tippler's Tap Fortitude Valley Venue

James Street in Fortitude Valley is a classy precinct. Historically, most of us visiting there were just window shopping in the fashion boutiques and wondering why pulverised avocado on quinoa costs twice as much as smashed avo on sourdough. But no longer – now we head straight to Tippler’s Tap.  This…

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…

Uitgang Bar & Beer Garden Venue

Anyone who has spent time in the company of Fraser "Frase" Rettie and Craig "Grum" Knight, the duo behind Melbourne-based gypsy operation Exit Brewing, will know they are gregarious, men of the people sorts. Such a description can also be readily applied to their mate David Pike, someone whose relationship…

Empress Craft Beer VenueBottleshop

If you pay even the slightest bit of attention to what's going on in the craft beer industry in Australia, you'll have noted a rising tide in Tasmania. After years in which the number of breweries in the state remained steady, from around 2015 onwards that steadiness was replaced by a stampede as, almost…

Ogdens Brewery Windsor Juice Beer

With a name like Windsor Juice, it would be fair to assume there’s some reference to the Mexit extraction kerfuffle in the UK; however, the noble liquid in question is actually the debut hazy offering from one of Perth’s grandest old pubs, the Windsor. After bestowing the 110-year-old dame with a…

Hop Nation Seven Clouds Hazy IPA Beer

For Moorabbin bar and bottleshop Grape & Grain's seventh birthday, Hop Nation brewed a one-off beer. Except it's no longer one-off as it proved popular enough to bring back on a larger scale. As the name hints, Seven Clouds offers not just a nod to the birthday bash but also to the land across The Ditch…

Felons & Brewsvegas 2020 Hazy Pale Beer

Brewsvegas launched in 2014 as Brisbane’s annual ten day celebration of all things good beer. It's a not-for-profit that relies on sponsorship and a ton of volunteer help and goodwill, with everyone involved a lover of beer, Brisbane, and the city’s beer community. Their annual collaboration brew…

Bad Shepherd Unicorn Beer & Lumberjack IPA Beer

As is becoming increasingly apparent, not only have we reached a point at which the role of ABAC – the [Alcohol Beverages Advertising Code](https://craftypint.com/news/2174/the-big-issue-cracking-the-code) – has become a weekly discussion point but we seem to have moved beyond that to a place in…

Hope Brewery FKA Passionfruit Cider Beer

The annual FKA Festival celebrates music and arts in the Hunter Valley, and Hope Brewery in turn celebrate the festival by brewing FKA Passionfruit Cider. It’s a sparkling beauty, clear as the sky on a bright October day over the vineyards. On the sweet to dry spectrum, this sits right in the middle…

Hope Brewery Imperial Lemon Lime & Mango Sours Beer

Hope Brewery aren’t new to the fruit sours game - their fruited Berliner Weisse variants have been around for a while, and many would say they’re up there with the best of them. But, while their sours are good, their imperial sours might be a game-changer. The majority of fruit sours tend to sit…

Hope Brewery Newy Pacific Ale Beer

Hope Brewery may be nestled in the Hunter Valley, but it only takes an hour to get from the brewery doors to the beaches of Newcastle. So while they’re surrounded by one of Australia’s most beautiful wine regions, I suppose we still can’t blame them if, like many of us, the brewers occasionally…

Innate Brewers Pulp Fiction Blood Orange Gose Beer

Having Miserlou’s cool surf rock vibes belting through my head every time I looked at this can was great, yet it wasn’t the best part of opening Pulp Fiction. No, that honour goes to the fact the sampling day was a mere 40C, a situation which offered more sweaty swagger than Vincent Vega’s beading…

Otherside Brewing Co DDH Oat Cream IPA Beer

It’s becoming increasingly apparent the Otherside brew team have entered the sort of epoch of creativity and consistency which is normally only viewed retrospectively. Those paying close attention will have seen the Myaree brewery nail a spectrum of styles, almost in an offhand manner – “Hey, we…

Deeds Brewing Cherry-Mandering & Full Disclosure & Best Coast Beer

Like most brewers, the crew at Deeds took a bit of a breather from releasing new beers over the festive period. But it hasn't taken long for the tinnies to start flying from the Glen Iris brewery once again. **Cherry-Mandering** was brewed for February's Brewer's Feast and sees them add the fruiting…

Who Brews Sausage Queen Beers? News

Who doesn’t love a bloody good snag? Sausages generally slot into that lovely category of things that even when they’re bad they’re still pretty good. And when they’re good, they’re transcendent. Why else would every Bunnings car park be so choccas every Saturday and Sunday? Let’s be honest…

Who Brews Project Beers? News

Project Brewing opened their doors in Melbourne's outer eastern suburbs midway through 2019 but their origins are forever interwoven with another brewery's launch in 2016. It was while stopping into Healesville that Braden and Caitlin Beggs found themselves at the doorstop of a freshly-opened…

Crafty Crawls: Richmond News

If Richmond had a nickname, it would 100 percent be “The Sporty Suburb”. This place has ties to practically every massive sporting event in Melbourne, from the AFL, rugby and soccer to the cricket, tennis and basically every other non-aquatic sport you can think of (although – fun fact: Richmond…

There's A New Fox In Town News

In March 2019, a brewery sale took place that didn't send the same shockwaves through the Australian beer community as some. Yet the beers that have resulted from the Hooper family's takeover of Fox Friday in Hobart are starting to create ripples of their own. The acquisition saw the small, part-time…

Stepping Out From InCider News

After a seven year journey as the creator, owner and operator of popular craft beer and music festival Beer InCider Experience, Marty Keetels has decided to put it up for sale along with Brisbane's annual community awards The Beeries.  George Levi sat down with him to find out more as he switches…

Brew & A: Sow & Piglets News

Sow & Piglets have always done things a little differently. For one, how many of the 600-plus active brewing companies in Australia started out in a hostel? And how many of them maintain a focus on traditional German beer styles? Even the origin story is rather unlikely.  Marion Klink and John…

Who Brews Cooks River Beers? News

When Captain James Cook waltzed into Botany Bay in 1770 he “found a very fine stream of fresh water” and most humbly named it after himself, conveniently ignoring the fact the river had been named Goolay’yari for tens of thousands of years beforehand.  Regardless, the colonists wasted no…

From Oskar Blues To The Blue Mountains News

Who Brews Boekamp Biers? News

Boekamp Bier is not only one of Tasmania’s newest breweries – the doors of their Moonah brewery opened for the first time last September – it's also one following its own path. Owners Mark French and Jurriaan Boekamp are using their reinvigorated brew kit to focus purely on traditional…

Beer Travel: South Gippsland News

South Gippsland has many claims to fame. Its wineries produce some of the finest pinot noir in the land, it's long been the heart of Victoria’s dairy industry and, as a result, the region is filled with butter factory after butter factory that would make for ideal breweries. Back in 1989, that’s…

Dusty Miner: Slayer Of Beers News

It is MacDuff that suspects Macbeth of regicide, eventually killing Shakespeare’s ambitious king slayer in the final act, saving Scotland from the mad tyrant. Duff, the Thane of Fife (upon whom MacDuff is based) is an ancestor of Dusty Miner’s owner and head brewer, Stuart Duff. So, you would…

Who Brews Cattleyard Beers? News

Groovin the Moo has always been a little different to Australia’s other one day festivals. Its autumn touring schedule may see GtM hit as many cities as the Big Day Out (RIP) did in its prime but the festival and the promotion company behind it, Cattleyard, have always focused on giving people an…

Territory Brews News

When we took a tour of Australia for our Best New Beers Of 2019 features late last month there was a gap in our coverage: no rundown from the Northern Territory. But, while the rate of new releases from breweries there might not yet warrant such an article, there is a growing craft beer scene (as described…

Conspiring On A Home News

“When you haven’t sold a single beer yet it’s hard to work out where you want to be, but we have had the goal of making a brewpub from the very first meeting.” That's what the crew at CoConspirators told me the first time we met and here we are three years later (almost to the day)…

Who Brews Alchemy Beers? News

Now that we’re a couple of weeks into 2020, we can all give up the charade. Face it: you’re unlikely to stick to your New Year’s resolutions. Don't worry, though, while we often start a new year off with grand ideas, life happens, January turns to June and we end up waylaid down a new path. Unless,…

Newstead Brewing Launch The Art Series ft Soda Mouf (QLD) Event

We’d be fucked without art. Not just in a “there’s nothing to put on our beer cans!” kind of way (still bad), but in a much deeper, painfully existential, “what’s the point of anything?” kind of way (much worse).  As a species, we’re a mixed bag but, hell, the existence of unbridled…
