Capital Brewing Company has today brewed its first official beer in its newly commissioned brewery in Fyshwick, Canberra.
Formed in April 2016 as a partnership between Canberra hospitality professionals Kain and Tom Hertel, and Batlow Cider founders Rich and Sam Coombes, Capital has until now been gypsy brewing at several Sydney facilities.
Capital plans to use grain from Canberra Region growers in its beer, in addition to hops supplied by nearby Batlow Fruit Co-operative, which is three years into a hop growing trial.
The debut house-brewed beer is Trail Pale Ale, one of 12 beers that will be available on tap in the venue.
Capital also announced that local food truck Brodburger will be taking up residency in the taproom when it opens on September 9.
