Range Brewing, Newstead

BRISBANE | Range Brewing is a brewery that I’ve been a huge fan of, ever since first trying their beers in Sydney back in 2018 during Sydney Craft Beer Week. I’ve been to their Abbotsford, Melbourne taproom many times, but it wasn’t until this year that I managed to get to the original brewery and taproom in Brisbane.

Founders Matt McIver and Gerard Martin set their point of difference early, launching without a core range and a desire to constantly create different things. It’s exemplified by their mission statement, “Forever exploring. Forever evolving”. Their weekly can launches have become very popular, and many of their special releases sell out fast.

Range’s beers cover a diverse range (excuse the pun) of styles, but they’ve become particularly well known for their hazy, East Coast-style IPAs. When they first hit the scene, Range really raised the bar for what people could expect from Aussie NEIPAs.

Definitely get on the hazies when you visit the brewery, but don’t ignore the other beers on tap and in the fridges either. When Range do a style, they tend to nail it. Definitely try some of their barrel aged stouts if you can. Tasting paddles are available, and if you want to take some beers home, Range have a take away license.

As for the brewery space, it’s an industrial, warehouse space with clean, Scandinavian influenced lines and materials like light wood and greenery. It comes together well. There’s lots of communal tables and stools, and the brewing equipment is in full view.

If you’re hungry, there’s a kitchen cooking up fresh wood-fired sourdough pizza, antipasto, and breads.
