What is Craft Beer? Craft Beer may appear to be a new term for beer from boutique breweries and yet there has been craft beer breweries in Australia since the 1980's. Today the phrase "Craft Beer" is used as a defining marketing term for -- small batch -- high quality beer. Beer is made from four main raw ingredients - water, malts, yeast and hops.
QLD Beer Week (established in 2012) provides education, brings awareness to craft beer, while connecting QLD brewers, bars & bottle shops to help promote good beer across QLD. Not only do we inform people in our communities of the wonderful contribution brewers are having across the state but this year also sees many larger festivals/events, in areas like the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Toowoomba, capturing the true essence of a state wide Beer Week.
