The greatest strength of a craft brewery is its process; after all, this is what differentiates home-grown brews from every other run-of-the-mill beer lurking on the shelves out there. Our unique brewing process incorporates rainwater along with time-honoured German techniques utilising custom home-made equipment, and every small, handcrafted batch blends the highest quality, freshest ingredients we source from around the globe.
Although we strive to bring the world a little closer together with our inclusion of quality global ingredients, we can’t tell a lie. Mandurah isn’t just where our brewery is; it’s where our hearts are, too. This is why we make the conscious choice to support our region through the use of locally-sourced ingredients. Our ambition for authenticity informs our mission to educate all the thirsty guys and gals around us about how flavoursome real beer can be through unique, quality experiences. Our vision and eventual goal is to become one of the most respected and preferred craft breweries in Australia.
Queensland gets craft beer permits
Queensland’s controversial liquor laws were passed overnight. While the laws have bars and nightclubs in an uproar, the legislation provides a ray of sunshine for craft brewers.
Among the provisions of the Tackling Alcohol-Fuelled Violence Legislation Amendment Bill 2015 were amendments to the Liquor Act 1992 that provide for new producer wholesale licences.
These licences provides a permit for craft brewers that will enable them to sell and supply craft beer sell craft beer, produced by the licensee on their premises, at promotional events and for consumption away from the event.
It is understood this permit will enable craft brewers to sell beer and provide samples, as well as sell up to 9 litres of beer to take away, at a wide range of promotional events, including market stalls.
A ‘craft brewer’ is defined as a brewer making up to five million litres, down from the original proposal which aligned with the Craft Beer Industry Association’s definition of craft brewer, which is a brewer producing up to 40 million litres.
The beer closes the gap between the state’s wine producers, who have access to satellite licences to sell their products, and craft small brewers who were unable to sell or supply their product, even in their brewery, without a separate bar licence.
Licencing consultant Russell Steele from RSA Liqour Professionals, who has been campaigning for the permits since 2011, said the permits were an awesome bit of news amongst the controversy.
“These permits are an absolutely long-overdue path to market for small brewers,” Steele said.
“[They] give craft brewers a chance to get out and showcase their products to new markets and to sell them a carton straight away without having to pay for a line in a bottleshop.”
Steele said it was the third time the provisions had been inserted into Bills before Parliament.
During hearing for an earlier Bill, the Craft Beer Industry Association lobbied for the permits, arguing:
In Queensland, craft breweries cannot sell or supply their beer away from their licensed production premises – there is simply no ability to apply for a suitable permit for a market festival or similar event. The only limited scope to expose craft beer products for sale direct to consumers away from the main premises relies on using a host venue such as a Convention Centre or licensed venue. Access to these is often limited for smaller players.
