About Us

The Newstead Brewing Co.

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. We 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.

The Brewers

Newstead is the confluence of energy and ideas from three brewing perspectives. Mark Howes comes from a research background with a PhD in molecular bioscience. Home brewing got serious, instead of post-graduate studies, the beard was grown and so too was the brewery. Jarrett Bravo hails from global hospitality with stints in running backpackers hostels, hotels and English pubs. Bringing a love of the UK style and traditional methods with a bent on herbal nuances Jarrett’s perspective is refreshingly holistic. Gavin Croft draws from a home brewing and small business perspective, with a focus on innovation and precision. While concomitantly supporting his independent brewing company, Gavin brings a wealth of inspiration and knowledge garnered from both post-graduate education and commercial experience in brewing.

The Story, the People

Since Before the Flood, Newstead Brewing Co has been in the pipeline (or out of it) for a number of years. 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. Mark likes beer.
