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…

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,”…

Detour Beer Co Brewer

The opening weeks of 2019 saw the Yarra Valley brewing community welcome another member to its ranks. Well, sort of... There's a new brand featuring all new beers and a new taphouse in which to enjoy them. At the same time, there's no new brewery or, indeed, new brewery owners. Confused? Thankfully,…

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…

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…

Saccharomyces Beer Café Venue

For folks fixated on finding tasty treats, South Brisbane’s Fish Lane is quickly becoming a reliable source. Spanning four blocks back from Grey Street to Manning Street, you could almost forget you’re in Brisbane’s busiest tourist precinct.  The area has undergone a rejuvenation; once dominated…

Otherside Brewing Co DDH Hazy IPA & Catharina Sour Beer

If there was ever a chance to release a beer of the moment, this is it. As 2019 ebbs towards a new decade, the density of haze surrounding most drinkers is only increasing so, in an accidentally anarchic response, this limited release is actually relatively clear. The **DDH Hazy IPA** wasn’t supposed…

Otherside Brewing Co Indie XPA Beer

I first heard the term "indie" in 1991. Nirvana were breaking and Sonic Youth were between releasing a pair of overground albums that would influence the 90s American sound and resonate globally. Both had capitalised on hard fought yet building awareness, partly due to a deal with a major label, Geffen…

Bad Shepherd Red IPA & South Island Sour & Double Choc Hazelnut Brown Beer

They're never shy when it comes to releasing new beers but, for their fourth birthday, Bad Shepherd went on a little splurge. The **Red IPA** was the official birthday beer, with the style voted for by their fans. Pouring a rusty deep orange, it mixes floral and berry hop aromas with toffee and a deep,…

Murray's Kick! Passionfruit Beer

When people first taste Stone & Wood’s Pacific Ale (a nostalgic time for many of us), the common descriptor is “passionfruit” - and some are surprised to hear that there’s no actual fruit in the easy-drinking beer and that the passionfruit characters are all derived from the now iconic Galaxy…

Quiet Deeds Double Juice Train Beer

Juice Train was one of the first local New England IPAs to gain a foothold in Australia, predating the current hazy floodgates that have left us drenched in tropical hops. It was also the beer that switched a lot of beer nerds onto Quiet Deeds, showing they were willing to experiment with up-and-coming…

One Drop Brewing Strawberry Honeydew Sour & Guava White Grape Gose & New World IPA Beer

One Drop and their fruit sours. Wowsers. It turns out when you put in almost 200g of fruit per litre of beer, it has a serious impact... In terms of colour, the **Strawberry Honeydew Sour** presents a light copper orange, just a shade darker than apple juice, but with a hint of pink to set it apart;…

Mismatch Brewing Co Strawberry Berliner Weisse Beer

Mismatch's can designs have something of the classy cricket club's logo about them, yet still work even when taken into bold colour territory. And they're rarely bolder than when they put out one of their fruited Berliner Weisse. The livery for this strawberry-laced affair might not be as bright as its…

Mismatch Brewing Co New England Lager Beer

Having praised Mismatch's Lager elsewhere on this site for approaching the style with the classics in mind, here they served up something very different for their spring 2019 release. Where most brewers have opted to pair "New England" with IPA when creating something hazy and hopped to the eyeballs,…

Mismatch Brewing Co Pale Ale Beer

There's been a move in recent years to strip out as much of the malt character in pale ales as possible, leaving the pale gold beers as pure hop delivery systems: all the fruit, some bitterness, and nothing else to get in the way. It makes pouring a glass of Mismatch's Pale something of a change –…

Mismatch Brewing Co India Pale Ale Beer

If something ain't broke, why fix it? Sure, the IPA family tree has taken some pretty interesting routes (or should that be roots?) in recent times, many of them delicious too. But there's a reason the style was such a strong point from which to launch: the classic India Pale Ale as reimagined by American…

Crafty's Advent Calendar: Gillian Letham News

If one was seeking a single example of how far the Australian beer scene has developed over the past decade, there’s none better than Brisbane. On January 1, 2010, uttering a phrase along the lines of “vibrant craft beer scene” about the city would have been enough for people to ask what hour…

The Sobah Option News

Many of us have been there. It may have been at a pub, at a mate’s place, or in your garage playing poker.  You’ve overindulged in one or two too many nine percent double IPAs, maybe had your first cigarette in six months, stumbled into bed without brushing your teeth and woken up with the…

Crafty Crawls: Canberra's Breweries & Brewpubs News

The nation’s capital has long had a love for craft beer – even before we started calling it by that name. And so more than a few tears were shed when Wig & Pen and Pact both ceased operations within the same year, especially since the former had been keeping Canberrans hydrated for just shy of quarter…

Philter Find A Home In Marrickville News

Almost three years and a couple of champion trophies on from the release of their first can of XPA, Sydney-based Philter have finally found a home. It’s one right in the heart of Marrickville, along the same brewery trail that connects many Inner West favourites.  And that's no accident,…

Who Brews Terra Forma Beers? News

“Every other beer brand seems to want own the sunset; we want to own the sunrise.” From the outset it’s clear what binds this new brewery, and it’s a vibe that lives well beyond the local pub. As Terra Forma ready their debut trio, Guy Southern spoke to Chris Nelson and Joel Pember, two…

Margs' Mermaid Megsy Gets A Makeover News

If you’ve visited the wine-centric Margaret River region at any point in the past three years, chances are you'll have visited – or at least been told about – Margaret River Brewhouse, or Brewhouse Margaret River as it's often called.  Conveniently located at the beginning of Margaret…

Holgate's New Taproom Opens As They Enter Decade Three News

You can count the number of independent Australian breweries in their third decade on your fingers, such is their rarity amid today's increasingly crowded field of 600-plus brewing companies. And for one of them, Holgate Brewhouse, they've arguably never been busier as they embark upon their 21st…

Podcast People: The Chosen Brew News

What was the first beer that made you think about beer? Was it the first time you saw a magnificent Guinness pour? The first time you decided you wanted something different and picked up a Chimay Blue from the bottleshop? That (unintentionally) Brett-laced sticky homebrew a university mate handed you…

GABS Founders Sell Their Festivals News

GABS, the beer festival meets circus that has grown into a multi-city extravaganza over the past decade has been sold. Founders Steve Jeffares and Guy Greenstone have sold it in order to focus on their fast-growing Stomping Ground brewing operation. The festival has been acquired by media and marketing…

Beer Travel: Auckland News

Despite being New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland has always trailed Wellington and Christchurch when it comes to the title of the country’s best place to be a beer drinker. But the past few years, and an initiative launched in the past few months, has the place known as the City of Sails quickly…

Who Brews Wild Polly's GF Beers? News

Cockatoos are an all-too-familiar sight in Canberra. It’s not unusual for citizens of the city and surrounds to be woken up in the morning by a choir of sulphur-crested cockatoos. But a new kind of cockatoo is starting to populate our nation’s capital, and it’s a less familiar breed: Wild Polly,…

Liberty Triumph At NZ Beer Awards News

Who Brews Reckless Beers? News

The friendship group behind Reckless Brewing sounds like something out of a sitcom: Alice and Grace met when they were kids, and became better friends over the years; Alice and Jarrod became friends at uni, where they were both studying science; in time, the three of them started all hanging out together,…

Crafty Crawls: Newcastle News

For years, Newcastle carried the stigma of a tough town blanketed by a thick yellow smog, where the locals rioted when the cops tried to shut down one of their pubs. Its streets were built on blood, sweat and Tooheys beers. Where the bar tiles were hosed down from the night before, ready for the shift…

Who Brews Old Slang Beers? News

Dog's breakfast. Loose cannon. Spit the dummy. Fresh as a daisy. We love old phrases and slang because of the particular way they allow language to paint vivid pictures. Whether you're travelling overseas or dropping a throwaway line in front of someone who's never heard it before, when old…

The Booze World's Crowdfunding Barassi Line News

Close to a year ago, equity crowdfunding became available for proprietary limited companies in Australia – that is, businesses with a limited number of shareholders. You can read about it in our feature on the financing of brewing companies here. Since then, a number of breweries have turned…

Three Cheers For Shepparton News

“I think any centre, whether it be a capital city or a small country town, is only as vibrant as the food and beverage scene is… and the sky’s the limit with the scene here.” - Jade Burley, Shepparton Brewing. Over the past decade or so, it's become increasingly easy to find a local brewery…

Beeries Winners 2019 News

Early on, there…

Brisbane's Lithuanian Baker Boys News

Humans have been drinking beer in some form or other for thousands of years now. What was once served in a bowl and drunk through a straw to avoid floating malts has somehow morphed into grape bubblegum sours, chocolate croissant brown ales and custard tart stouts. Yet, just as it seems that…

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…

Battle Of The Brews At Indian Ocean Brewing (WA) Event

On the last Thursday of every month, the Indian Ocean Brewing team battle it out against a different contender.  Four Indi beers go up against four competitor's brews that are voted on by discerning drinkers, with the night including $7 pints and a $10 bites menu. …

The Third Beer & Food Truck Festival At Willie The Boatman (NSW) Event
