FEATURING

FURPHY

Furphy is a refreshing ale that is Geelong born and brewed from 100% Victorian hops & malt. The first sip is clean and crisp, with a subtle balance of fruit and malt to keep it interesting. The finish is smooth and pleasantly refreshing. Given our Geelong brewery used to be an old mill, it’s no surprise Furphy is an easy-drinking ale.

BYRON BAY BREWERY

At Byron Bay Brewery we celebrate every flavour. Whether it walks through our doors or flows though our taps. So whether you’re talking about the brewery itself or the unique lagers and ales it produces, you’ll quickly discover that we’re filled with character.

EUMUNDI BREWERY

Eumundi beers are crafted using quality ingredients and are perfect for enjoying in our incredible Queensland climate. They like to call them ‘True nature in a brew’. Thanks to a partnership with Lion, Eumundi Brewery are every-growing.

STONE & WOOD

Born and raised in Byron Bay, they’re proudly independent and local. After catching a wave, a band at the pub, exploring the hinterland or catching up with friends, in this part of the world people enjoy having a beer. We brew beer for times like these – beers for the locals, friends passing through and those who appreciate good beer.

PANHEAD CUSTOM ALES

Panhead is New Zealand’s very own craft brewing monster truck rally, putting the frighteners on anyone who thinks beer should mind its own business and cower behind the wine rack. Panhead have a unique line of stock and custom brews.

BLACK HOPS BREWING

Beer, made by three mates in Burleigh. From pale ales, Tropical lagers and IPA’s to Saisons and more, these guys in Burleigh brew some seriously good beer.

LOST PALMS BREWING CO

Pastel-coloured Lost Palms Brewing Company is the latest addition to the burgeoning craft beer scene on Queensland’s Gold Coast. A pilsner released in January joins Lost Palms’ core range of beers including an amber ale, an IPA and a beetroot sour.

WAKACHANGI

Established more or less in 1648, Wakachangi is probably New Zealand’s oldest and most trusted beer! Legend has it the first batch was brewed by nymphomaniac monks in Portugal. Wakachangi made the first South Otago beer with North Canterbury flavours, brewed by a West-Coaster with the ol’ misty waters of the Waikato!

BRICK LANE BREWING CO.

The Brick Lane Brewing Co began when 25 friends united over a plan to do things differently. We took the plunge and built one of the most innovative and flexible independent breweries in the world.  From this Melbourne base, our brewer Jon Seltin is taking our beers to the laneways of your city. For the beer curious, the inquisitive and the adventurous come and find us and be a part of Brick Lane.

MATSO’S BROOME BREWERY

Being the most remote brewery in Australia is certainly a challenge at times but the Matso’s team love their spiritual home in Broome. Matso’s Broome brewery as we know it began in 2000 when Martin and Kim Peirson-Jones took over a truly micro 200l brewery that was also a café and art gallery.

Now the brewery is famous for its Ginger Beer and Mango Beer along with the ice-hot Chilli Beer and a range of seven products now available in bottleshops around Australia!
