2016 has definitely been a hectic year for Stockade Brew Co (SBC). In less than a year since it was brought to life (Oct 2015), the brewery has put out a slew of new beers. On top of the 4 core line-up of super sessional beers; Duel Hoppy Lager, Chop Shop Pale Ale, The Sesh Golden Ale & 8Bit IPA, Stockade are on track to round out 2016 with no less than 8 limited edition brews - all available in both bottles and kegs in select venues throughout major cities in Australia and beyond.

With 3 down and 1 to go, Stockade has already managed to score a total of 23 awards, comprising of 8 Gold, 7 Silver and 9 Bronze medals.
