Newtowner is a beer born of a commitment to the local community.
Originally, it was available just within the Newtown postcode, but by popular demand this has now extended to a much larger area.
For The Local Community
A beer brewed for the local community could come in any style. However, for Young Henrys this concept is best served in its current form, an English Summer Ale.
The brewery is clearly influenced by English styles but always with an Aussie twist.
The Summer Ale is a beer that will appeal to everyone. Its accessibility is a defining feature and perfect for the concept. It’s designed for beautiful summer days in a Newtown beer garden or hotel balcony.
If on a blazing hot day you happen to wander down King Street, pop into a pub for a schooner of local flavour. A cold Newtowner is a great choice to quench your thirst.
Young Henrys have demonstrated their commitment to the local community with this beer and it strengthens the relationship between the brewery and its customers. It makes those around Newtown and Sydney’s Inner West feel part of something.
This feeling is exaggerated for craft beer enthusiasts. It’s always nice to call something your own and to feel a part of something larger.
Light, Accessible and Summery
The beer itself is a gorgeous sparkling, light ale with just enough clarity that it looks like it will be refreshing when you see it fizzing in the glass. The tropical fruit hop aromas promise a taste of summer.
It sparkles away, dancing on your palate with punchy sweet fruit flavours that refresh you but leave you wanting to drink more. There’s some crispness on the finish to keep it interesting.
It’s an easy drinking beer and so it should be. Young Henrys want everyone in Newtown to be a part of their big family and this is how they’ll do it.
