MORE ON THE LOCAL BREWS
We love a good Murrays brew – aren’t we lucky to have a brewery just 15 minutes down the road from us!
We have featured East Coast Lager, Whale Ale, Murrays Angry Man, Black Bear & Fred IPA & will feature their seasonal beers on tap whenever we can get our hands on them!
Their motto is ‘No Boring Beer’ & here’s their story:
Murray and the team have been brewing unique and off-beat naturally crafted beers since 2006, and in the process have won a bunch of awards and accolades – including Australia’s Brewer of the Year last year.
The craft beer bug bit Murray a few years before this, when he was on a trip to America. Legend has it he tried a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale at a roadside diner in California – and thought he’d died and gone to beer heaven! This experience inspired him to open his own brewery, so he could brew and enjoy the beers he wanted to drink back home in Australia.
The birthplace of Murray’s Craft Brewing Co was the tiny hamlet of Taylors Arm (population 50) on the NSW North Coast. Murray bought the iconic Pub With No Beer (of Slim Dusty fame), and quickly solved the supply problem by installing a microbrewery on site.

Newtown based Young Henrys motto is ‘Serve the People’ – doesn’t that sound great!
Young Henry’s Natural Lager & Newtowner Ale have both been a big hit.
Here’s their story:
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.
The idea to open a brewery was easy. Doing it wasn’t. At the time, few people understood the concept of hand crafted beer so several development applications were rejected. But in 2012 the green light was given for an industrial warehouse space in Newtown. With the help of a few friends, a small brewing kit was purchased and Young Henrys was officially in business.The first Young Henrys beers were brewed in March 2012. The idea behind them was pretty simple: brew beer our local community would enjoy and be proud to call their own. Not much has changed since. The same beers that poured back then are the same ones you’ll find at our brewery now.
