Just in time for summer, BentSpoke cracks its tinnies
One year to the day since announcing plans for a cannery, Bentspoke Brewing Co threw the doors open to a media preview of the new facility last night.
“We’re proud to have invested in the local community to make it easier for Canberrans to enjoy our beer anywhere, anytime and anyhow,” Co-owner Richard Watkins said.
“The new facility, with 30,000 litres of fermentation capacity is certainly the largest brewery Canberra has ever seen, and will be one of the largest independent breweries in Australia. And in another few months we will be stepping that up to 50,000 litres.”
At launch, there are two varieties available: The Crankshaft IPA and the popular Barley Griffin Pale Ale. The beer ships across the city for the first time today (Thursday 3 November) to supermarkets, bottleshops venues, and restaurants.
With the expanded production capacity of the Mitchell facility BentSpoke beer is also appearing on tap at pubs and clubs through Canberra and the surrounding region.
“I’d like to thank Canberra for its continued support of BentSpoke,” said Watkins. “We’re proud to be one of Canberra’s local beer brands.”
For curious Canberrans, as part of Canberra Beer Week, BentSpoke is throwing the doors open to the new Cannery on November 6. Between 11.00am and 6.00pm the public can get a first look at the new brewery in all its glory.
The launch of the Cannery coincides with the launch of BentSpoke’s new website which has a complete list of stockists for the new can range.
