What is Craft Beer? Craft Beer has become a generic term used to define beer that is made by small breweries, in limited quantities, using traditional methods from high quality ingredients. It may seem to be a new term for beer from small, boutique breweries, however there have been craft beer breweries in Queensland since 1988. There has been a huge resurgence in opening of new breweries since 2014, with a new brewery opening in Queensland every 4 weeks.
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.
