Fair drinkin’: Australian locals worth getting to know / by Nic Crilly-Hargrave

We’ve come a long way from stubby coolers and cans of Castlemaine XXXX, gently perspiring in a January heatwave. From sausages and barbecues and bottles of VB bobbing in a paddling pool. 

But what we drink – and where we drink it – continues to say a lot about us. In this series of photographs, Original Gravity explores why, when it comes to drinking beer in Australia, everybody’s needs good neighbour(hood taproom)s.

Barefoot beer drinkers roll in from the surf to the serving hatch at Lost Palms for a pot of sessionable Summer golden ale. It’s all sun-bleached t-shirts and tropical pastels at this Miami watering hole.

Further along Queensland’s Gold Coast, a neon smile glows as the sun sets over Balter’s industrial-chic warehouse in Burleigh, while Stone & Wood’s colourful, cavernous taproom pedals good vibes and tasting paddles. A different postcode, a different personality.
