Brisbane’s Slipstream Brewing are conducting a $1.5 million extension of their Yeerongpilly brewpub as well as boosting beer production capacity to meet increasing customer demand.
Founders Deale and Elisa Stanley-Hunt said the brewpub’s revamp was made possible due to the partnership they forged with accelerator business Mighty Craft (previously Founders First) in November 2019. It will be on display to the public sometime in February and it will allow them to host the likes of beer master classes, meet the brewer sessions and festivals.
The new brewpub will be integrated into the existing brewery space where there’ll be indoor and outdoor dining for 250 people and a full kitchen, complete with pizza oven and smoker.
“We are proud to be making some of the most sessionable and accessible craft beers available, and we’re excited by the opportunities this new facility provides us to introduce more people to the Slipstream range,” the Stanley-Hunt’s said via a statement.
In line with the changes at the brewpub, Slipstream have also recently unveiled new-look packaging. They’ve given the red and white logo an update and retained the colours, typography and illustrations that identify each beer in the core range. They’ve also added the tagline ‘Pure Flavour’ and incorporated it across all brand touch points.
“We wanted to keep the key elements of the current packaging and a similar Slipstream handwriting across the products, and the new branding achieves all of this. Our beers have always been brewed with no tricks, bells or whistles. It’s all about the flavour and we wanted to convey this clearly on the new packaging.”
Slipstream Brewing also launched a new core range beer late last year. Regatta Lager is a lager based on the German Helles-style.
