Micro Breweries Swooning The Gold Coast
Anyone with a half decent shirt , scarf and trendy hat , can sit in an upmarket pub on the Gold Coast looking all important drinking $15 beers , that is , if that’s what you’re in to .
But people with some common sense , a sense of adventure , & a sense for creative people who actually do all the hard work creating the latest craft beers , they… go and check out the micro breweries around the gold coast for an expert experience , not just to be seen .
So where are all these hidden breweries that your’e starting to hear about huh ? well lets find out …..
1. Burleigh Brewing Co.
With their locally famous Brewhouse Bash( on the 1st Friday of every month ) starting at 5pm , 17 A Hartly Drive Burleigh Heads QLD 4220 , you can sit back , relax , try a few brews , and enjoy the live music. There’s even a $6 BBQ . A Portion of the Brewhouse Bash goes towards a selected local club , group or worthy cause . In just a few years this has raised over $70, 000 to the local community .
They have only just recently won GOLD COAST BUSINESS OF THE YEAR !
All other Fridays*, the brewery is open from 5pm to 8:30pm for those who prefer a quieter, more relaxed drink. As well as their beer by the glass, you can grab a free bag of popcorn or something from the local food truck they invite along to serve dinner and relax in the Brewhouse Bar for ‘Friday Brew Jams’ where they invite a local emerging musician to play at the Brewery every Friday. They might still be running around a bit, finishing off production for the week, so you’ll have a birds’ eye view of the team in action!
Yes they do tours ….. release note from the brewery …
PLEASE NOTE: Burleigh Brewing is undergoing a significant expansion and October / November will be a very busy time. In the interests of safety for all, we will not be conducting tours in October or November 2015. We are taking tentative bookings for the tour on 5th December – possibly the first peek at our expanded site! If you are interested in holding a spot, please e-mail email@example.com. We will confirm closer to the date as to whether the December tour will indeed be possible. Exciting times! Later in 2015 we will also confirm the days/times for tours in 2016. Again, if you’d like to be notified of plans as soon as they are finalised, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
