Meet the Breweries
Kosciuszko Pale Ale
Kosciuszko Brewery encompasses the spirit and the inspiration of the Snowy Mountains. Their Pale is slightly cloudy ale that challenges the limits of the traditional Australian Pale Ale. Crafted from a blend of Pale & Munich malts, and brewed using Tasmanian grown Galaxy hops our pale ale delivers a pleasant maltiness.
James Squire, Australia’s first brewer, was a risk taker who liked to taste it all. His legacy lives on today with a range of delectable craft beers.
Yenda / Australia Beer Company
Our story comes from the humble innovative origins of home town yenda and our passion for celebrating Australian provenance with our brewers. Our beers are malt-driven, full-bodied beers with clean finishes, ensuring a great taste from an authentic craft foundation.
Capital Brewing Co is a brewery in Canberra Australia brewing Good Natured Brews. That’s our vibe. We’re here to brew the best beer possible.
That the beer from Jindy brewing was now here
And the lovers of the hops & malt were flocking to the town
For the sound of glasses clinking full of beer
Enjoy a pilsner, a lager, or even a pale ale
All brewed from the fresh local water
After hiking, biking, skiing, fishing or a sail
The quality of the brew will never falter
The mountains, the lake, its all here you know…
And the beauty of beer in its natural surrounds
Its as refreshing and as pure as the wind driven snow
No doubt you will absolutely love what you have found!!
JINDABYNE BREWING – THE NAME THAT YOU WILL REMEMBER!!!
Bentspoke Brewing Co.
NOTHING WORTHWHILE COMES EASILY. TAKING THE FAMILIAR ROAD CAN ROB LIFE OF ITS FLAVOUR. SO AT BENTSPOKE, WE TAKE A MORE ADVENTUROUS ROUTE, KNOWING ALL TOO WELL THAT IT’LL BEND A FEW SPOKES ALONG THE WAY.
Monteith's Brewing Company
With over 150 years brewing experience, Monteith’s Brewing Company has become recognised as the leader in the New Zealand craft beer market. Our origins are firmly ingrained and our brewery is standing strong and proud.
Like most good stories, ours started over a beer.
Meeting on opposite sides of the bar, Richard Adamson and Oscar McMahon got talking. It turned out they both shared a love of beer and a view that the Sydney beer scene was behind the times. It should, they thought, be more adventurous, innovative and fun. Since Richard knew how to brew and Oscar knew all the ins and outs of hospitality, they figured they could do more than just talk.
Bridge Road Brewers
Great beer is the core to a successful brewery, with marketing, merchandising and distribution aside, good booze is the key.
Bavaria’s unique wheat beer specialty
The careful selection of the finest wheat and barley malt gives Maisel’s Weisse its reddish glowing amber color and the brewing method of bottle fermentation handed down over generations of master brewers with yeast from its own pure breeding gives it its unique character. The fresh smell of fine yeast and pleasant fruity notes combines with the mild spiciness of malt, fruit and clove flavor and a hint of nutmeg. Afterwards unfolds then for Maisel’s Weisse typical, slightly fruity, spicy wheat beer flavor.
Modus Operandi Brewing
Always dreaming but finally formalising the concept in 2012, it all started in a motor home traveling around the U S of A, blaring Creedence and delving deeper into the craft revolution. We discovered every nook and cranny of the USA craft beer world for six months, brewing, talking, cleaning, talking, cleaning, brewing, and yes, drinking a lot of beer (tough I know).
