The craft beer revolution that’s been happening around the world is now well and truly underway in our Sunshine state. The past three years have seen a dramatic increase in the availability of locally produced craft beer. Where there was just an ocean of the single choice of mass produced beers, bars, hotels, and
restaurants are now offering a much wider choice, with craft beer increasingly appearing on more
and more taps. Even the big companies are promoting the craft beer brands that they own such
as James Squire, Kosciuszko, Little Creatures, White Rabbit, and Matilda Bay.
Our thirst for a more interesting and flavoursome beer that’s brewed locally has seen a rapid increase in the number of new bars that focus solely on selling craft beer. It often seems like a new craft beer bar opens in Brisbane every week. And the rest of the state is following fast, especially the Sunshine and Gold Coasts. With its wider taste profile, more and more restaurants are also ensuring that craft beer is available on their bottle menus to compliment the food. Beer degustation events are now a common event alongside beer matching sessions.Even the local bottlo’s now have fridges full of craft beer, with whole sections being devoted in the larger outlets.
To meet this increase in demand for craft beer, the number of breweries in Queensland has also seen a huge change. In the past three years over 30 new breweries have opened taking the total number of craft breweries in the state to over 50. Most of which you can visit and try a beer where it is brewed. And more often than not, talk to the brewer to learn more about the beer. Using only the four ingredients: water, malt, hops and yeast, brewers can create a vast range of tastes from fresh passion fruit and banana to dark chocolate and coffee.
