It’s a primordial need, hidden deep within Newstead’s psyche, to simplify the world as “us” and “not us”. While globalism and technology are breaking those chains, their fundamental requirement for tribalism is satisfied through the ubiquitous “sportsball”. And what better way to stimulate this need then with a ubiquitous QLD Lager. Whether Newstead or not, craft or mainstream, this is a beer for all, transcending teams for the good of the game. There’s just something about a well made lager Crisp, clean and refreshing Fresh mint and green grapes tickle the nose, with a gentle grainy palate, and smooth but bold bitterness that lingers
Newstead Brewing Co lives in a 1940s steel warehouse that was built by Skennars coaches. The warehouse was given a new lease when transformed into the Doggett Street Studio in the 1980s. A combination of bus and artistic flare gives the site a wonderfully tranquil, comfortable vibe with lashings of industrial robustness. They have done very little to spruce it up, keeping the original elements as much as possible, with some modern necessities (Big Ass Fans) and large shiny tanks.
DID YOU KNOW?
Newstead Brewing is the brainchild of the Howes clan (Peter, Heather and Mark) and Michael Conrad forging an unlikely but surprisingly useful pairing of science, fine dining and HR. Michael has owned and run many exceptional venues, such as Restaurant Two and Bistro Three. Peter and Heather started their own small HR business in 1982, which sold to a global brand in 2010.
