Jets Fill Up With Philter
The Newtown Jets are pleased to announce a new sponsorship deal with local beer producer Philter Brewing.
Based in Marrickville, Philter is a major player on the craft beer scene and is brewed just a stone’s throw away from Henson Park, making their brewery a great location for post-game functions and other Jets events.
Likewise, Team Philter will be present at every home game in 2021 pouring the good stuff for crowds of 8,972 fans at Henson Park and are currently concocting a special collaborative beer just for the club.
“Philter’s enthusiasm and concept for our very own branded beer were indeed very seductive,” says Newtown CEO, Stuart McCarthy.
“They are a family business conceived and run by Jets’ supporters who have been coming to Henson Park for years.
“The heart of the brand belongs to the Inner West, so the partnership couldn’t be a better fit.
“Plus, their beer tastes fabulous.”
Philter was born out of a backyard conversation between Marrickville mates and neighbours, Mick Neil and Stef Constantoulas, both of whom are Jets supporters.
“Mick and I would take the kids up to Henson Park to watch the footy on the hill in the winter sun long before Philter came into being. We’re Jets fans from way back and it’s a dream to be able to play a tangible part in the club’s journey,” says Stef.
“As a family run company, we’re all about supporting community,” adds Mick.
“The Jets are a huge part of the local culture – nothing beats the atmosphere of game day in Marrickville. We’re chuffed to be involved in helping them thrive.”
Newtown Jets respect and honour the Traditional Custodians of the Land and pay our respects to their Elders past and present. We acknowledge the stories, traditions and living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples on the lands we meet, gather and play on and that the land area encompassing Henson Park traditionally belonged to the Gadigal people of the Eora nation.
