Equipment starts going in … getting closer to becoming the first – and at the time only independent production brewery in Queensland.
The magic happens – brewing commences
Sold our first pallet of Burleigh beer! Burleigh Brewing opens with a European lager, an American pale ale and a mid-strength lager. Gradually, word spread. One. Tastebud. At. A. Time. Those early days were tough!
In what was a novel and unexpected use of the fermentation cellar, Burleigh Brewing was chosen as a location for the NRL’s nude footy-player fundraising calendar photo shoot (with participants’ modesty protected at all times 😉 ) We appreciated the little bump of publicity it brought.
