Like most good stories, ours started over a beer. Meeting on opposite sides of the bar, Richard Adamson and Oscar McMahon got talking over their love of beer and view that the Australian beer scene was behind the times – that it should be more adventurous, innovative and fun. With Richard’s brewer experience, and Oscar’s hospitality expertise, they decided they should do more than talk.
In 2012, after a long search for a permanent home, Young Henrys Brewery was officially born in Newtown. With a few friends and a small brew kit, they set about ensuring no local would ever go thirsty again! Now in 2016, the brewery is growing at break-neck speed, with a bustling tasting bar and servicing hundreds of local and national watering holes. Young Henrys has most recently incorporated a distillery into the family, with their award-winning Noble Cut gin and more hand crafted spirits to be released soon.
Young Henrys stands behind an unwavering vision to brew beer the local community loves and is proud to call their own. By keeping things local, reducing environmental impact, and collaborating with likeminded, passionate, creative people, Young Henrys has become a favourite at beer gardens and gigs throughout Australia.
