On December 8, 1975, Brisbane history was made. That's when community radio station 4ZZZ transmitted its first broadcast, and the independent and alternative media outlet has been doing its thing on the city's airwaves ever since. Yes, it has now clocked up a whopping 45 years, in fact.

That a big milestone. And, obviously, it's one worth celebrating. 4ZZZ itself is marking the occasion, of course, including via a big week of programming from Friday, December 4 — but it is also getting a big cheers from Young Henrys as well.

They Sydney-based brewery is throwing some love up north via its new limited-edition H4ZZZY West Coast IPA, which is only available in southeast Queensland. Brisbanites can find the brew on tap in select venues around town, and also in long necks at some bottle shops, but only for a short period.

Drinking a brew that pays tribute to a Brissie icon is all well and good. It's particularly great, in fact. But Young Henrys' H4ZZZY is going one step further — with the brewery donating 50 percent of the proceeds from the beer to 4ZZZ. Yes, having a sip means that you'll be helping support the community station, and helping to keep it on the air for decades to come.
