Say g’day to our mate Hingy, owner of Unkle Hingy’s Barber Shop and our first ‘Mate of the Month’.
Whoever coined the phrase ‘money makes the world go round’ is a peanut. It needs to be changed to ‘mates make the world go round’. As a company that was built on the back of mates helping mates, we support this phrase change 100%.
As our network of mates continues to grow, we keep seeing incredible acts of mateship, both inside and outside of Your Mates Brewing Co. We believe these acts are worth celebrating, so today we’re launching our (da da da daaa) ‘Mate of the Month’ series.
In one sentence – the ‘Mate of the Month’ is our monthly feature on a mate of Your Mates who has done something legendary, mate. So without further ado, here is the first ‘Mate of the Month’!
Meet our barber mate Hingy, owner of Unkle Hingy’s Barber Shop in our hometown, Caloundra. With 10 years’ experience in the industry, Hingy knows his way around a dome. A long time mate of ours, he’s been keeping us clean and mean for about five years now.
Most recently, Hingy set up shop in our brewery offering free beard trims to Dad’s on Father’s Day. This selfless act of mateship to Your Mates and to the Dads who were here celebrating has earned him the deserving title of Mate of the Month.
“Father’s Day way such a vibe, it was great seeing so many people step up and trim their beards for a good cause. Had a blast setting up in the brewery that’s for sure!” Hingy said.
Hingy serves Larry tinnies to his clients while he sharpens their pencils, so we weren’t surprised with his answer to what his favourite YM drop was.
“Mate it’s got to be the Larry!” he said.
Your favourite Larry locale?
“There’s not many better places to crack a Larry or two than on Moffs cliff on a Sunday arvo!”
Not wrong Hingy!
When he’s not lowering ears, Hingy spends his time skegging around Kawana looking for a bank or ‘G’ing up the boys to tip a few in’.
For all barbering services and wedding enquiries, you can get in touch with Hingy via his shop number – 0428 828 175.

Cheers to you Hingy!
