Ipswich venue picks up top beer gongs

IPSWICH'S very own brewpub is already earning praise, less than a year after opening in the heritage listed 88 Limestone St redevelopment.

Peak Crossing beer man Wade Curtis (pictured above) and his 4 Hearts Brewing Company, which runs the Pumpyard Bar and Brewery, was among several Gold Award winners at the recent Ipswich City Council Awards for Excellence.

The Ron Brown Memorial Heritage Conservation Awards acknowledge the work of organisations and individuals that conserve, restore, reconstruct and adapt existing places to retain their cultural heritage significance.

When it comes to the amber stuff that flows freely from the taps at the trendy new craft beer venue, the Pumpyard has been kicking more goals.

Beer & Brewer Magazine named the Pumpyard in the 2015 Australia Top 50 Beer Venues, coming in at number 35, while 4 Hearts Wabbit Season carrot beer and Coalminers Stout both picked up awards in the Craft Beer Industry Awards in Sydney.
