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…

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 (Lion) 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…

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…

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…

Feral Brewing West Coast IIPA Beer

Feral celebrate eighteen years of brewing the only way they know how: with a massive IPA that invites you to knock back a four-pack – even though you know this is probably a really bad idea. In order words, pretty much like many an eighteenth birthday party. As the first Feral beer designed by the…

Bad Shepherd Pacific IPA Beer

With brighter days seemingly ahead for Melburnians, one of the city's breweries has looked to capture summery vibes in a can. Bad Shepherd have added to their long-running IPA Series with Pacific IPA, one that's the lightest in the series in terms of ABV, yet still goes heavy on the hops: 15 grams per…

One Drop Brewing Harvest & Vintage 2020 & Cabernet Funk 2020 Beer

You know what’s infuriating? When people can do something really well and then they just have a crack at doing another thing and it turns out they’re really good at that too. It’s like: “Oh yeah, I know the punters are champing at the bit for our IPAs and sours, might just give some mixed ferments…

Vale Brewing Gin Sour Beer

There are advantages in being owned by a multi-faceted beverage company, one that makes juices, concentrates, wine, mixed spirits and gin as well as beer. So the crew at Vale and Fox Hat, part of the Bickford's group, decided to make use of their fortuitous position in concocting new releases for spring…

Fury & Son Double IPA, SXC Double IPA & Zesty Bouquet Beer

Fury & Son have made a habit of spinning two beers from one concept as 2020 has progressed, and they're at it again with a double whammy of double IPAs. The reappearance of their **Double IPA** will be familiar to those who've sampled past releases: sure, there's plenty of piney, citrusy hops at play…

Hargreaves Hill & Four Pillars Gin Barrel Gose 2020 Beer

It might not command the headlines of, say, Boatrocker and Starward's annual Ramjet release, but Hargreaves Hill's ongoing partnership with Yarra Valley neighbours Four Pillars is another example of Victorian producers working together to create beers that capture elements of both collaborators. The…

Nomad Brewing Supersonic Sonic Boom: Yuzu & Passionfruit Beer

Nomad have gone hazy with this Supersonic IIPA, bringing a soft cloudiness to a series that’s usually bright and sparkling. But they’ve stuck to their habit of adding enough fruit to wow the senses. Each Supersonic variation has a mouth-belting bitterness doing battle with whatever fruit is in…

Helios Brewing Cyclops IPA Beer

No, your eye is not deceiving you: Helios have finally released a year-round IPA you can buy in tinnies. In previous years, they’ve released different versions of Cyclops IPA as a wet-hopped beer at hop harvest time, but this is something different – [a core range West Coast IPA they’ve been…

Wolf of the Willows Double Vision Beer

I'm not sure 2020 has been characterised by double vision as much as it has the one single vision over and over again, at least for those living in Melbourne. It's been as challenging a year as you could imagine, and among those for whom the roller coaster has thrown up some serious twists, turns and…

Akasha Projects Double Queen Red IPA Beer

I think it was sometime at the end of 2012 I had my first red IPA. It was Brewtal’s Jack The RIIPA at the original Tippler’s Tap in Brisbane and I was instantly enamoured. To this day, if I ever see a red IPA on a tap list it’s going to be the first beer I get 100 percent of the time. Unfortunately,…

Who Brews Noodledoof Beers? News

It turns out one of the more unlikely brewery names in the country is a combination of its founders' nicknames – Noodles and Doof. Then again, given the…

Who Brews Bracket Beers? News

Given they go by the name Bracket Brewing, you might expect this Sydney brewery's moniker to stem from a piece of equipment, maybe something used to keep a homebrewing setup cobbled together. You'd be wrong, however. You should instead be looking to the undergrowth. As father-son duo Mark…

Postcards from the Edge No.53: Monkey Brews News

For many, the COVID-19 lockdowns led them down the path of discovering new hobbies: sourdough making, painting, maybe a moment’s knitting. For others, it was the time to commit to something you’d always promised you’d do, maybe learning Spanish or dusting off the Coopers kit from two Christmases…

Ten Years Of Crafty: The Wobbly Boot News

It was around midday on August 30, 2010.

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…
