Bravo Brewhouse Brewer

There is something intensely gratifying in the surprise that comes with finding good beer in places you are not expecting it. But, as tastes have changed and ergo good beer can be found in airports and stadia, surprises are hard to come by. Enter Bravo Brewhouse, located within Kedron-Wavell Services…

Hope Brewery Brewer

Nestled in the heart of the Hunter Valley, New South Wales’ iconic wine country, is the last place you might expect to find 2016’s Champion Small Brewery. Yet, the sprawling venue that is Hope Estate is home to just such an operation. The 420-hectare location is also home to a winery, restaurant…

Murray's Brewer

Starting out as the brewery that gave the Pub With No Beer its beer, the Murray's operation moved to Port Stephens, a short drive up the coast from Newcastle, once word of its high quality brews meant they could no longer be contained by a pub in regional New South Wales. Now sharing a site with Port…

4 Hearts Brewing Brewer

In 1891, at a town meeting in Ipswich, the citizens made a resolution: “The time has come for a Technical College to be formed in Ipswich.” More than a century later, the grand brick buildings of the Technical College still tower over Limestone St… but now they house something more important than…

7th Day Brewery Brewer

On the first day, Mike Beresford Jones took up homebrewing because there was a dearth of locally made craft lagers. He began developing a recipe for a quality pilsner, and a handful of local dads who met through their children’s sport would join him each week to drink it in his garage at Curl Curl,…

Akasha Taproom & Brewery Brewer

The rise of the Akasha Brewing Company was swift. It was only in April 2015 that Dave Padden hitched his wagon to Sydney’s growing caravan of gypsy brewers and launched the first Akasha beer into the market. But being at the mercy of someone else’s brewing schedule was never a long term plan –…

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…

Bacchus Brewing Brewer

When someone asks the Brisbane beer scene at large: “I’m visiting Brisbane. What good beer places should I check out?” you can guarantee: “Go to Bacchus. You won’t regret it.” will be among the responses. Named after the Roman god of strong drink (he’s often referred to as the god of…

Bad Shepherd Brewer

It takes a particular set of skills – and a lot of hard work – to set up a brewery and restaurant in a spot very few beer people would have visited – or indeed had cause to visit – and then have people lining up for tables in the first week. But for anyone who makes the trip to Cheltenham brewpub…

Balter Brewing (CUB) Brewer

To balter is to dance artlessly without particular skill or grace, but usually with enjoyment. It’s also the name of the Gold Coast brewery opened by a quartet of Australian surfing legends and some mates, with a trophy-winning brewer at the helm to ensure that when it comes to the beers there’s…

Barossa Valley Brewing Brewer

These days, beer lovers still tend to return from trips to the USA enthused by the beers they've sampled on their travels. But they also know they can lay their hands on some great local brews too. It wasn't always the case, however, as Denham D'Silva learned when he spent time Stateside studying and…

Batch Brewing Co Brewer

When you can include wild fermentation, trophy winning beers, a bottleshop that brews and a brewery that distills, there’s merit to the argument that Sydney’s Inner West is home to the most interesting concentration of beer businesses in Australia. Yet, as recently as 2012 there was just one independent…

BentSpoke Brewing Co Brewer

To many beer aficionados, for the majority of its life at Canberra House, the Wig & Pen Tavern was synonymous with one thing above all others: the beers of Richard Watkins. The brewer spent 17 years there, twice winning Champion Australian Brewery titles and creating an unrivalled collection of cask…

Capital Brewing Co Brewer

As the home of politicians and public servants, Canberra has often suffered from something of an image problem. Yet, despite many Australians’ distaste for the political class (not to mention the city’s many roundabouts), more recently a new image of the nation’s capital has begun to take shape. It…

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…

Exit Brewing Brewer

Cast your eyes over the opening salvo of beers from Exit Brewing and it’s easy to conclude they’re only too eager to plunder all parts of the world for inspiration. There’s a couple of saisons, a Scotch ale, some US-inspired hop bombs and not one but two variations on the theme of stout. It…

Feral Brewing (CCA) Brewer

It was on separate trips along the West Coast of the US that schoolmates Al Carragher and Brendan Varis hatched their plan for a brewery on the West Coast of Australia. It took a number of years for the plan to come together, during which Brendan project managed brewery installations and start-ups across…

Fury & Son Brewer

We won't lie. When we first saw there was a new brewing company set to start up in Melbourne going by the name Fury & Son, our initial thought was that it could be some hipster brand. Fury & Son: it seemed to possess an air befitting the sort of tattoo, barber and gentleman's outfitters salon you can…

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…

Helios Brewing Brewer

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out Helios Brewing has something to do with the sun. Their logo is a glass of beer from which is emanating the light of the sun. Inside the brewery is a wall mural of the Greek sun god Helios riding a chariot in the sky, holding said glass of beer and the light…

Hemingway's Brewery Port Douglas Brewer

What happens when two fishing mates return to the marina after chasing marlin all day and find there's nowhere to sit and enjoy a good craft beer while telling tales of the one that got away? They simply decide to fix the problem by building their own brewpub at the marina. It took co-owners Tony…

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…

Hop Nation Brewer

It has been said before that winemakers love beer more than wine, whether it be for reasons of speed of production, or simply for a change of pace. Two such winemakers, Sam Hambour and Duncan Gibson, have taken that to its logical conclusion, and have now set up shop brewing beer in the back streets…

Innate Brewers Brewer

There could be no better name for the company. For a start, Innate is a play on words that summarises the WA brewery’s foundations: it was launched by four couples, making the "8" or "eight" of the title. Yet, taken literally, the name also described Innate's ideology, with its owners keen that…

Mash Brewing Brewer

The Swan Valley is home to a colourful collection of craft breweries. Within an hour of touching down at Perth's airport, visitors can take in stops that celebrate the Aussie spirit, German beer halls and wild experimentation in the space of a short drive. At the heart of the region is Mash Brewing,…

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…

Newstead Brewing Co Brewer

The beer scene around Brisbane and South East Queensland has utterly transformed itself from a place of few microbreweries and even fewer places in which to drink a craft beer to one of the most vibrant and diverse in Australia. Playing a major role in that transformation since opening the doors of its…

Nomad Brewing Brewer

When you hear the word “nomad”, what do you think of? A nomadic tribe wandering across a desert with a caravan of camels in tow? Grey nomads crossing the Nullarbor in a caravan, collecting souvenir teaspoons along the way? Or an independent brewery that was conceived in Italy, has a head brewer from…

O'Brien Beer Brewer

It was way back in 2005 that O’Brien Beer released Australia’s first gluten free beer, yet the brewery’s story starts much earlier. In fact, you need to go back to 1998 – the year John O’Brien discovered he had coeliac disease. For John, it was a discovery that meant giving up a few things,…

Ocho Brewer

As the craft beer landscape becomes more crowded, it gets ever harder for new brewers to stand out. It's the case even in Tasmania where, up until 2014, the number of breweries was pretty static, remaining stubbornly in single figures, before an explosion that quickly took the total to 20 and beyond. There…

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…

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,”…

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…

Prancing Pony Brewery Brewer

For a while, it seemed as though South Australia's beer scene was resistant to the change sweeping the rest of the country. Sure, it had a few well-established micros, was home to the country's largest independent brewer – the makers of craft beer before it was craft beer, Coopers – and could lay…

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…

Seven Sheds Brewer

After more than two decades as the country's leading - and for long periods - only beer writer, Willie Simpson decided to put his money where his mouth was. Or more precisely, his mash tun where his pen was. Along with partner Catherine Stark, he opened Seven Sheds in 2008, a brewery and meadery on a…

Six String Brewing Brewer

If you want an example of the passion that drives the craft beer industry in Australia, look no further than Erina's Six String Brewery. This brewery, set up by longtime friends Chris Benson and Adam Klasterka on the New South Wales Central Coast, is a lesson in following your dream no matter what gets…

Sydney Brewery Brewer

There are plenty of breweries in Sydney. But there’s only one Sydney Brewery. In some ways, the folks at Sydney Brewery have flown under the radar for a while: perhaps because they were comfortably servicing their own venues and a number of Rydges hotels; perhaps because their beers were previously…

Vale Brewing Brewer

The Barossa Valley is best known for its shiraz, the Coonawarra region for its cabernet sauvignon, Clare Valley for its riesling and the Adelaide Hills for sauvignon blanc and pinot noir varieties. However, in McLaren Vale, while there is a long association with wine, there's a strong and growing argument…

Wheaty Brewing Corps Brewer

In 2003, Jade Flavell, Emily Trott and Liz O’Dea embarked on a mission: to create a pub that served “No crap on tap”. They did it so well that the now iconic Wheatsheaf Hotel – or The Wheaty to friends – is known nationwide for its high calibre brews and top quality service. A visit (or three)…

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…

Wolf of the Willows Brewer

When launching a brewery, sometimes staring down the barrel of brewing history at the great names that have come before you can be an intimidating task. How to reach those heights when you’re only just stepping away from brewing in your own back yard? But Wolf of the Willows founders Scott and Renae…

Your Mates Brewing Brewer

It’s the age old story. Mate meets mate. Mate dreams about making beer for the Sunshine Coast with mate. Mate opens brewery that serves up rippin’ brews with mate. At least, that’s the story of Hep and McGarry, the duo behind Your Mates Brewing. Perhaps you heard of them when they started gypsy…

Brewhouse Brisbane VenueBottleshop

Perched on the cusp of Woolloongabba and South Bank, on the corner of Stanley Street and Annerley Road, Brewhouse Brisbane represents everything a pub should be. There’s no defined or predictable demographic, there are brews to comfort the lager lovers and excite the beer geeks, they show all…

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…

Blackhearts & Sparrows Bottleshop

Blackhearts & Sparrows started out as a home for boutique and obscure wines but, in a reflection of the nation’s changing drinking habits, has increasingly become one of the best places to unearth good beer. They might still call themselves wine purveyors, but their stores across Melbourne – and,…

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…

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…

Far Side Beers VenueBottleshop

It’s a family affair at Far Side Beers these days. The hole in the wall bottleshop that once took up residence on Burke Road in Camberwell has changed hands and, in the process, moved a kilometre down the road to a bigger space, complete with bar and beer garden. Julien Nell had been working…

Hopheads VenueBottleshop

While the west of Melbourne is slowly awakening from its craft beer slumber, there's still a good number of suburbs starved of a decent bottleshop or bar where they can find a selection that strays far from the mainstream. For beer lovers around Point Cook, however, the days of being starved of choice…

Pumpyard Bar & Brewery / Dovetails Restaurant Venue

On the corner of Limestone and Ellenborough Streets is a complex of stately red brick buildings.

Walking between these tall buildings…

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…

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…

The Noble Hops Venue

Joe Wee wanted to do something different. An engineer by training and trade, for some years he had harboured the idea of changing tack and creating a place where his beer fantasies could play out. As this dream swirled around he was keeping abreast of the fast changes in the growing Sydney scene, while…

The Scratch Venue

Before any other bar in Brisbane offered tastings of their beers; before Queensland had more breweries than people; before your nanna realised her floral print couch was missing… there was The Scratch. Australia was a little late to the game with the craft beer movement, and Queensland was…

The Wheaty Venue

Ask well travelled Aussie beer lovers for their favourite craft beer bars and the chances are The Wheaty's going to feature high – if not first – on their list. Leading the way for better beer in Adelaide since 2003, when it was launched by avowed hopheads Jade Flavell, Emily Trott and Liz O'Dea,…

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…

Uncle Hops Venue

A few years ago, if you’d suggested a classic old pub like Newtown’s Bank Hotel would have a dedicated bar serving only craft beer, the idea would have been lumped in with the other nonsense ramblings you’re accustomed to hearing from the suburb’s cerebrally unsound street preachers. But it’s…

Wine Republic Northcote Bottleshop

Following in the footsteps of their Brunswick Street location, Wine Republic owners Fiona Lim and Tom O’Mara have nudged a little further into Melbourne's north and opened a second store on High Street in Northcote. And this time they've done so with a distinctly more hop-focused array of wares. While…

Newstead Brewing Brewsvegas Beer 2017 Beer

Each year, not only does Brewsvegas bring the good times to Brisbane for a week and a bit of marvellous beer events, it brings out a commemorative beer too.

Holgate Brewhouse Wild Red Ale Beer

At March's Good Beer Week Gala Showcase, a brewer who's never shy with his opinions approached with what can only be described as the zeal of a zealot – yes, that much zeal. "Have you tried the Flanders Red yet?" he demanded. "The Boatrocker one? Yeah, it's good but pretty straight up and down…

Holgate Brewhouse Tank 9 Brew Loose #1: Tyger Tyger Beer

Ever since filling every other nook and cranny in the brewery with much bigger tanks, the Holgate Brewhouse team has been using the last remaining baby, Tank 9, as the place for trial and experimental brews. And, as an early Christmas present to his brewers, owner Paul invited the four of them to create…

Holgate Brewhouse Tank 9: Crosby Idaho Experimental #4 Beer

Now isn't that a name that rolls off the tongue: Crosby Idaho Experimental #4. It's the sort of name Aphex Twin would give to a track featuring his mother singing lullabies, her voice mangled through a handful of homemade vocoders then merged with the sound of a pneumatic drill pounding the deep end…

Margaret River Brewhouse 8 Ball DIPA Beer

When Margaret River Brewhouse grace us with one of their limited release brews, it’s often akin to being walloped across the face with a sucker punch, whether that's in the shape of a big stout, a puckering sour or a wall of hops. 8 Ball Double IPA fits in the last of those categories: an 8.2 percent…

Ballistic & Carwyn Cellars & Brewski Raspberry Sour & Sweet Stout Beer

Dear people who are better at maths, logic, or philosophy than I am: help me out here. Ballistic made two new beers. They’re designed to combine into one beer. So technically they’ve made three beers. But since they encourage experimenting with different blends, have they actually made infinite beers?…

Queenscliff Brewhouse Swede & Sour Raspberry Berliner Weisse Beer

On a small 300 litre brewhouse tucked inside the Queenscliff Brewhouse, head brewer Mattias Isaksson is given a fairly free reign when it comes to what limited release beers he brews. Clearly, he has plenty of control when it comes to naming those beers too, with the brewery’s summer release named…

Otherside Brewshed Debut Releases Beer

Typically, we cover new beer releases from a brewery as they come to hand. This used to be a straightforward affair but, if the late twenty-teens have taught us – and most drinkers – anything, it’s that more breweries means more beer. In the case of some, the now weekly new release schedule manifests…

Grand Ridge WHOA 2015 & Kellerbier Beer

There's not much they don't do at Grand Ridge's home in Gippsland. Victoria's longest established microbrewery (some eight years older than Mountain Goat) brews beer, runs a pub and restaurant, offers accommodation and rears cattle fed on its spent grain to be served in the restaurant.

Who Brews Three Greens Beers? News

Who Brews BrewiColo Beers? News

Life moves a little slower in Ocean Grove. No one seems to be in a rush in this small town on the Bellarine Peninsula. That’s probably why people move here from Melbourne for a seachange, helping the town to grow while retaining its charm. It’s probably also why BrewiColo resonates with locals…

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…
