GABS Brewer 2016

GABS Brewer 2016 – Newstead Brewing Company

Brewer: Mark Howes (who has a very, very dry sense of humour) from Newstead Brewing Company in Brisbane

What beer are you making for GABS?newstead-brewing
A Sour Imperial Coffee Porter

What’s it called?
Milk and Three Sugars

Where did the inspiration come from?
At last years festival a friend of mine regurgitated the people’s choice winning beer into my limited edition Coopers GABS glass. I was unaware of this fact as I too had consumed this beer and was “purging my cache” so to speak in the bathroom. I came back thirsty and downed it without hesitation. It was just like the original beer, only sour from the bile and stomach acids. It tasted much better and I knew I was on a winner.

Tell us why you have chosen to brew a Festival Beer for GABS
Because Milk and Two Sugars was truly awful. The world needs to be set right again.

Finish this sentence – one thing I would like to change about craft beer is …
People doing dumb, heretical things with beer like putting really bad coffee and lactose in it.

The Great Australasian Beer Spectapular is on May 20-22 at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton, Victoria, May 27-28 at the Australian Technology Park in Eveleigh, NSW and June 18 at ASB Showgrounds, Greenlane, Auckland.
