67 Castlemaine Street, Milton, Queensland, Australia
Open seven days a week, 10am until midnight
(excluding Public Holidays).
In between a rock and a hard place in Milton sits our production brewery and pub. Opened in March 2017, 67 Castlemaine Street is the perfect alternative location. Are you game?
Newstead at Milton brings the efficiency of a 50 Hectolitre (hL), four-vessel DME brewhouse in line with our dedication to experimentation and exemplified by toys such as an 800L Hopback, a Hop Doser and an 80 can per minute Cask canning line. Each brew is 5000L, with a series of 5000 and 10000L fermenters in the carpark – capable of producing 1.4 million litres of beer per annum.
A sophisticated level of automation allows the brewers to ramp up production while still being intimately involved in every detail of the brew. Our focus is fresh, tasty and locally made beer, right in the heart of Brisbane.
Our brew crew is bursting with energy and ideas from lots of perspectives…
Kerry Claydon – After excelling in multiple fields, Kerry was drawn to brewing for the pure fun and excitement of the process. While attaining the heights of both the major brewing corporations in Australia was an incredible learning experience, Kerry became disillusioned with the intrinsic nature of the oligopoly. In stepped the craft beer movement and Kerry found her raison d’etre, while the movement found a champion. Kerry is as at ease chatting to beer nerds as she is protozoans. As Head Brewer, she heralds as much science as passion for the Newstead team.
Simeon Bonetti – In conjunction with an excellent brewing pedigree Sim is also an excellent human. Passionate about social justice, equality and encouraging everyone to enjoy good beer, Sim has a knack for challenging expectations while making you feel at ease. Previous roles as Head Brewer for Brisbane Brewing Co and storeman at Brewer’s Choice place him in excellent stead as Brewer at our Milton plant. An award-winning brewer, Sim’s value lies in his huge heart and desire to push the boundaries of flavour and process.
Bertrand Koelln – As solid as the ground he walks on, Bertrand has become a sure and steady asset to the team. A background in biology and industrial chemistry lends itself naturally into a mindset of critical thinking and control. Bertrand has an easy grace, a quick laugh and a measured word. A blank slate when it comes to brewing but an eagerness and passion that can’t be taught, Bertrand has quickly soaked up brewing science, adding his own flavour and Brazilian confidence to the Newstead system.
Joe Clarke – perhaps the most un-English pom to grace our shores (especially now that he is an Australian citizen), Joe is humble, unassuming and exceptionally hard working. Thrown into the deep end of packaging and left to his own devises, Joe has excelled at problem solving, critical thinking and annoying the staff by limiting underfills. A softly spoken quip lies perpetually at his lips, while a steady handshake greets the team each morning.
Denholm Brockley – creative, enthusiastic and dedicated, Denholm personifies the new wave of young brewers sweeping the Nation. Eager to learn, develop his brewing talents and delve into the nitty gritty of packaging and filtration, Denholm has quickly become a key part of the team. With a passion for pushing the boundaries of brewing concepts and fermentation he is in good stead to grow personally and professionally into the potential that we can all see in him.
Evan Goulden – As the third brewer to bring the skills and mindset of a completed PhD to Newstead, Evan is focused on critical analysis, the minutiae of brewing science and a dedication to quality control. Although green at commercial brewing operations, Evan’s background and skills will be a welcome addition to Newstead dedication to brewing quality. A microbiologist by trade, Evan begins his journey with Newstead in December 2017.
