CATTLEYARD BREWING CO. FORTNIGHTLY FORTYFIVE ON SPOTIFY
In light of the global pandemic, which has brought the live music industry to a standstill, the CYBCo. team, whilst normally focused on Groovin the Moo (GTM) found themselves with extra time on their hands. This allowed the opportunity to develop the expansion of the CYBC range and increase distribution and delivery in Newcastle to both local outlets and to the fridges of family, friends and fans.
Whilst GTM was unable to proceed in 2020, CYBCo. have still been able to focus on showcasing Australian musical talent. All their cartons and cans are scan-integrated to launch an ever-evolving Cattleyard Brewing Spotify playlist, the Fortnightly Fortyfive. Headed up by DJ Lex Deluxe, the initiative is curated by a different local artist each fortnight, with the playlists giving the stage back to Australian artists during a time of cancelled shows. So far, the Fortnightly Fortyfive has featured local legends Split Feed and Motorik. Upcoming guests include Kim Churchill, Just A Gent, Danny Clayton, Pat Stevenson and Joe Barrs, with more to be announced!

In early 2019, CYBCo. engaged Newcastle-based J.J. King as Head Brewer and General Manager. J.J. comes with a wealth of experience in process engineering and production, working with fast-growing craft beer brands like 4 Pines and Green Beacon. He was at the helm of producing a bespoke beer with GTM touring band Trophy Eyes, creating the limited edition “Trophy EyePA”. This unique one-off brew concept will roll out with a chosen artist from each GTM line up moving forward.
