TASTING NOTES

Take two steps forward, or two back, it’s in Newstead’s opposite that they attract. Symbiotic juxtapositions; a sweet and sour sauce, a bittersweet tale or just a gentle dipole moment. It was Paul’s Polar Perfections that revolutionised cold milk distribution in the warm subtropics of South Brisbane in the 1930s, delivered by those who graciously performed their “societal duties”. There’s no milk products here though, just an honest Tropical Sour. Utilising Lactic Acid Bacteria from non-dairy sources, they soured the beer prior to fermentation. Tropical hops add fruitiness to a light, malt palate, while the tangy, acidic finish is vibrant and refreshing. An un-beery beer, built for the summer but revitalising all year round.

BREWERY SNAPSHOT

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.
