Inherent in the process of making beer are so many opportunities. We get to create new flavours, learn about different techniques. Most of all, we get to share it with people and spread the word about just how exceptional craft brews can be. We get to explore and connect and learn. Uniting those who value meticulously curated brews. Knowing the difference between marketing fluff and something truly handcrafted. With our simple, homespun blends.

Thorny Devil strives to provide irresistible flavours of crafted beer. We truly believe beer is about experimenting, exploring and having fun. Thorny Devil brews beers and ciders that ignite drinker’s taste buds. Thorny Devil is available at local events and festivals.


The Great South Yeast

The Great South Yeast

Independent and self-funded. The Great South Yeast is a colourful melange of writing, photography, brewery profiles, artwork and cartoons. All shot through with a sense of wicked humour and unbridled glee. It’s a “forum for the tipplers, swillers, dabblers, brewers and lovers of this liquid craft. To show their appreciation through the written, drawn, shot or any other printable contribution” according to its introduction.

It captures the spirit that we experienced on our all-too-brief visit to Brewsvegas. The city’s beer scene really does bring together a kaleidoscopic array of people, there are venues with highly distinctive personalities and, while those in the industry most definitely take their beer seriously, one can sense mischief and creativity in equal measure at many of craft beer’s Brisbane homes, meaning that, for the adventurous visitor, you’re never quite sure what lies in wait at your next stop.


Craft Beer Scene Change

As for living through the beer scene’s rapid change, Bethany said that for a long time, if you wanted to have a good beer -€“ even five years ago -€“ it had to be home brew. Now I have close friends at the likes of Green Beacon and Newstead Brewing. When Archive first opened, if you met someone there you could be sure that you’d have something in common with them because they were there for the beer. That’s where I met my partner, in fact, because I told him what he should be drinking.

It is at one of the other early adopting beer bars that the magazine is launched tonight, where many of the remaining initial run of 250 copies will be handed out. Already, most of the run has been distributed so the intention is to post a PDF online and then, for future editions, to print more. The aim is that it will always be free, so they are working on ways to fund the project to ensure that Bethany and Tom aren’t out of pocket again in the future.
