Passion turned obsession; the inescapable truth of the tragic. Inevitably, it tickles every waking thought, bending the mind to its will, consuming ones cognitive capacity and driving a singularity in consciousness; MORE. It leads you on unrelenting paths, guiding your destination, causing you to doubt the very fabric of reality without it. Have you arrived? Did you ever leave? And where has it gone?
Styled off of the great man himself, John Black, and his obsession for all things Brisbane Beer. Chocolate and mint aromas combine with grapefruit, citrus and pine-y hops. This is a true celebration of beer flavour. Rich and decadent, with some rough edges to keep it interesting. One to be slurped or savoured, consumed at the #Doggie or in the #HomeOffice.
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.

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.
