Young Henrys celebrates ten years of brewing this year and have launched a limited-edition barrel-aged red ale, 10 Years Strong. Making waves in the industry since 2012, Young Henrys has become a staple favourite across Australia and aims to continue to bring their signature blends to the hearts of all lovers of music, art, culture, and good beer.
Brewed last year, 10 Years Strong was aged in rum and port casks and gracefully blended to give a deep, rich level of complexity. The beer connoisseurs have poured their hearts into making this brew one to remember, with a perfect balance of bitterness and body, its ruby red finish certainly packs a punch at 8 per cent ABV. Aiming to secure the hearts of beer enthusiasts from across the nation, 10 Years Strong represents all the greatness that has made Young Henrys what it is today.
A brand synonymous with serving the people, Young Henrys has announced that this celebratory beer will be given away to customers whenever they buy any two 6 or 4 packs of their regular YH favourites as a special thank you to those who’ve supported them throughout 10 special years.
Young Henrys is proud to remain an independent brewery that has achieved a number of key milestones throughout the decade. Born in 2012, and gave birth to Natural Lager, their oldest beer, and also brewing the very first Newtowner later that year, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of their neighbourhood.
In 2014, they opened their doors to their very own distiller, where the award winning Noble Cut Gin was born, snagging a gold at the 2020 San Francisco Spirit Awards. Over the years, they have been able to grow their family to a team of 70 which allowed them to expand their reach nationally to securely place themselves as one of the leading beer companies on the Australian map.
Outside of the beer world, sustainability has been a core value in the Young Henrys ethos. Doing their part to keep the earth green, Young Henrys has partnered with UTS to launch The Algae Project. A sustainability initiative aimed to reduce carbon emissions in the brewing process, the groundbreaking project has caught the attention from all over the world. The Newtown locals also had two solar farms installed above their brewery allowing for 100% of power generated through renewable energy.
Since co-founders Richard Adamson and Oscar McMahon embarked on this journey from a shared passion of music and beer, Young Henrys have cemented themselves as a beloved figure in the worlds of beer, culture and music. This includes an endless repertoire of affiliations with iconic cultural names from collaborating with the Foo Fighters, Hockey Dad and Dylan Alcott to partnering with Rabbitohs, Download Festival, Rolling Stone AU, Triple R and FBi Radio.
“So here we are, 10 Years Young. A decade of late nights and dim lights, of fun and of friends, of mis-steps and mistakes, of loud music and unforgettable experiences. It’s been tough, joyous, emotional, hilarious and never boring, and what more can you ask from a decade of your existence? We are absolutely thankful to be standing exactly where we are today. To our wonderful crew, to all of our customers/mates, to all of the bands, artists, festivals, the whole YH extended family and to YOU, the person holding this can of Barrel Aged Red Ale, you have all helped Young Henrys become 10 YEARS STRONG, and we thank you, YH.” says Rich, Dan and Oscar from Young Henrys.
Raising a glass to 10 years of unforgettable moments, Young Henrys proudly stands tall having proclaimed their status as one of the leading culture icons, and makers of fine Australian beer, cider and gin.
