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…

One Drop Brewing Dark Cherry Imperial Sour Beer

It’s only April and already 2020 has thrown a whole lot at things at us we all rather it hadn’t, thank you very much. But in the pursuit of endless optimism, I’m going to suggest something I'm grateful for in 2020 - the rise of imperial sours. This isn’t the first time I've waxed lyrical about…

Pikes Beer Co Lemon Verbena & Ginger Gose Beer

Pikes' fourth limited release for 2020 ventures into sour territory in the shape of a lemon verbena and ginger gose. The beer was kettle soured with the lemon verbena and ginger added late in the boil. The former is a plant native to South America that imparts subtle lemon flavours and is often used…

One Drop Brewing Hazy IPA & Castaway IPA Beer

Late last year, One Drop released a New World IPA, and described it as being "brewed like a West Coast but hopped like an East Coast”. But, in the interest of doing isolation well, they’ve now separated the West Coast from the East Coast, making two beers from the one. Their **Hazy IPA** is bursting…

Ocho & Deeds Woolly Mammoth Double IPA Beer

Just a couple of weeks before travel into Tasmania was brought to a halt, Ned from Quiet Deeds called in to see Stu from Ocho at his Miner’s Gold brewery home. Of course, they brewed a beer together and, of course, it is a double IPA. With all the juice style IPAs on the market at the moment, it's…

Otherside Brewing Co Juicy West Coast IIPA & Russian Imperial Stout Beer

The Otherside experimentals continue with a flurry. Not only is there this massive duo but, as you read this, there’s also an AUS/NZ DDH Oat Cream IPA on the way plus some more shelf stable styles on the horizon. The DDH **Juicy West Coast Hazy IPA** is a hybrid of sorts, and one which is finding…

Bad Shepherd Poseidon IIPA Beer

The Almighty has long been one of Bad Shepherd's most sought after and top notch releases, a bold yet balanced double IPA bearing a hoppy, bearded god figure on the cans. But now it turns out there's someone more almighty than The Almighty as Poseidon, a triple IPA, makes his way from the brewery –…

Mismatch Brewing Crush Ale Beer

When South Australia heats up, people come out to play and drink, and eat and party *[At least when they're allowed too – Editor]*; this is when the Adelaide Hills comes alive during their Crush Festival. Held over a weekend in late January, it showcases the Adelaide Hills region and draws in hordes…

Newstead & Brisbane Distillery Company Juniper Juice Beer

When it comes to gin and juice, who did it better: Snoop Dogg, Lou Bega, or Newstead Brewing? I’m tempted to vote for Lou Bega, since he linked it to a beer bust… but he loses out since he failed to follow through and make a beer that captured gin and juice. Newstead, however, put their money where…

Newstead Brewing The Mayne Thing Golden Juice Beer

Newstead's core range beers are named after stories from Brisbane’s history, including Mayne Thing. But Mayne Thing is developing quite a history itself - to better service their customers, Newstead revisited it first to change it from a golden ale to a golden lager, and now to change it from a golden…

Newstead & Loop Growers Salt of the Earth Pickled Pilsner Beer

We all need to eat more vegies. We know that. So putting veggies in our beer makes as much sense as anything else. But this isn’t the primary reason Newstead joined up with Loop Growers; the brewery has jumped on board with the small farm’s sustainable ethos of closed loop farming. They send spent…

Australians Join Brewgooder's Global Gathering News

It was November last year when Brewgooder launched their Global Gathering campaign. Their mission was to bring together hundreds of breweries across the world to use craft beer help supply clean drinking water to some 100,000 people in need. Breweries would design their own beers and release…

Crafty Crawls: Sydney's Northern Beaches News

Saying you love Sydney’s Northern Beaches is sort of like saying you love Europe. Yes, when you look from the outside, you can see it as a whole, and enjoy its collective culture. But once you get there, you’ve got decisions to make. London, Paris or Berlin? Majorca, Santorini or Amalfi? Fjords of…

Podcast People: Step Brewers News

Tasmania's brewing scene is a busy old place these days so it seems only fitting the state would birth more than one beer podcast. Chris Lukianenko started The Beer Healer as a blog but soon moved into videos and podcasts about beer and the culture that surrounds it. In the second half…

Resin Brewing Opening In The Illawarra News

Despite how it appears, the guys at Resin Brewing didn’t pick that name because it’s a hop pun. Well, not entirely.  Business partners Brendan Dowd and Stephen House had known each other for around 25 years before deciding to set up a brewpub in the northern Illawarra suburb of Bulli. They’d…

Sparkke To Fire Up In Melbourne News

It takes something to stand out from the crowd in today's crowded beer landscape. And, while Sparkke have always been a multi-denominational beverage company rather than solely a brewer, even as they've focused much of their new product development on beer they've retained a character distinct from their…

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

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

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…

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…

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…

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