You will experience first hand the craft beer culture which is steadily growing in popularity on the Gold Coast and surrounds with 2 breweries having launched this year alone.

 

The majority of the breweries are founded and co-owned by family or friend partnerships with inspirational stories associated as to how they evolved some taking the step from home brewing to commercial brewing.

 

Amongst this fine group of micro breweries is an award winning brewery having earned Gold medals at the World Beer Championships as well as local recognition.
