Canberra brewery BentSpoke Brewing Co. turned two on Monday and celebrated with the release of seven new beers and a week-long party.
“We’re so proud to call Canberra home and to have achieved such a loyal following in just two short years,” said head brewer and owner Richard Watkins.
“Canberra’s continued love of BentSpoke beer has pushed us to make over 300,000l and 50 different types of beer since we opened, and we think that’s worth celebrating!”
BentSpoke celebrated its birthday on Monday, with the release of Descent 16, a 16 per cent imperial stout. The other beers to be released this week include; Hot Off The Press a hot mulled cider; Double Shot a double IPA brewed with cold-press coffee in collaboration with new Collingwood brewery Stomping Ground; Red Nuta a red India pale ale; Rusty Wheat a red wheat beer and Cluster 18 BentSpoke’s outrageous 18 per cent sextuplet I.P.A.
The celebrations cap off a successful second year for BentSpoke, which won the Australian Hotels Association ACT’s Best New Venue Award, several medals at last month’s Australian International Beer Awards and the start of construction of its production scale brewery that will see BentSpoke beer in cans in around two months’ time.
“We’d like to thank Canberra for its continued support of BentSpoke,” said Watkins.
“We’re proud to be Canberra’s local beer brand.”
