Spotlight on STOCKADE BREW CO
Stockade brewery started in 2013 initially starting out as Macarthur Grange Brewery, which was a wordplay on a great Australian pioneer and the physical location of their Brauhaus (brewery). From plotting around with a series of beers that are both modern and classic at the same time, combining traditional European styles with Australian ingredients and flavours.
The German brother has undoubtedly left his mark all over the brewery and the beer, the brewery ensure on only the highest quality ingredients, no sugars for high-speed fermentation, and no preservatives to destroy the purity of the beer.
From humble beginnings in the Smeaton Grange, New South Wales the Macarthur range was retired in 2015 becoming the Stockade Brew Co. Stockade are certainly a more adventurous brand and from here boy did they take flight!
Millions of Peaches, Peaches For Me
Stockade’s first seasonal creation was a fourteenth-century Germany Saison-style beer, brewed with 200 kilograms of peaches! In 2018 they went on to open the industrial-chic drinking den in Sydney’s inner west. Still the focus remains on creating the best beer for all. Just like the use of peaches, these guys do not do things in halves – we love the bright bold striking graphic beer labels and packaging.
During its four years in business, Stockade has rolled out an impressive roster of core and limited edition award-winning brews. The enduringly popular annual release ‘The Mountie’ won GABS (Great Australian Beer Spectapular) Consumer Choice in 2017: and ‘Splicer’ – a Grapefruit XPA won a Gold Medal at this year’s AIBAs (Australian International Beer Awards).

Located in Marrickville, Sydney the Stockade Brew Co’s location influences their craft beers as the bubbling local community of brewers and beer fans constantly inspire Stockade to be creative – it fuels their motivation to brew their best. It is here, amongst one of the biggest barrel-aging programs in the state the Stockade team play, trial, and experiment on beer and where their one-offs and small batches are made and released.
Stockade brew with quality and love that delivers happy, surprising, intriguing, but most of all, refreshing craft beers. Whether you love lager, sip stouts or if you have a penchant for pales, your thirst will be quenched.
Best Sunday Sessions in Sydney
The barrel room bar, in our opinion, is one of the best places in Sydney for quenching that thirst. This slick, stylish venue will impress any beer nerd (or non-beer nerd!) and the easy drinking crafties will go down smoothly on a Sunday session here.
Brightly coloured tanks adorned with Stockade graphics stand impressively behind seating areas, the large open industrial-chic space is divided by walls of wooden barrels filled with aging liquid gold. (AKA heaven).
There is always something new and interesting on pour; it is pretty much guaranteed a small batch exclusive will be on tap. And we’ve heard word that Stockade Brew Co has a new Limited coming out, The Raspberry Burst! A deliciously refreshing fruity Berliner Weisse that they are super proud of! And of course, the cracking core range of everyday drinkers is always available, plus you can even order beer-based cocktails. This place has it all in spades.
