It is hard to believe that only 12 months ago we opened our doors and poured our first beer! Since that time, we have poured over 30,000 litres of beer through our taps, brewed more than 30 different types of beers, started canning and have been distributed to more than 60 different bars, pubs and bottle shops throughout Australia and Internationally.
We are so proud of what we have accomplished over the last year and wanted to celebrate it in style. On Saturday, 17 of June, we celebrated our first birthday in by inviting our collab breweries, our local suppliers, musicians and everyone and anyone who wanted to celebrate with us to our little craft beer haven in Maleny.
We were so excited to be able to show off our two Collab American Pale Ale that we brewed with some of the best breweries in South East Queensland. From the Sunshine Coast, Your Mates, Sunshine Coast Craft Beer Tours, Sunshine Brewery and Mcleod’s all got together to create an American Pale Ale that will outshine them all. To make sure that this was no easy feat, Brisbane breweries Aether, Newstead, Brisbane and 4 Hearts Brewing Co. answered the call to brew an APA to make sure that the Sunny Coast beer didn’t go unanswered.
Our local pork supplier, Rhodavale Pork, supplied us with a mouth watering pork leg which we roasted up overnight, to pair nicely with either of the Collab APA’s.
Four local musicians graced the “stage” throughout the day. The Max Sportelli Jazz Trio eased us into the day with some upbeat jazz. Richo Richardson then amped things up a little with his honest, raw & gutsy country tunes. The Denis Sister’s then blessed the stage and showed us that age and size have no limit on musical ability! And as the day began to wind down, Kelly Cork played some acoustic tunes to wind down with it.
It was such a fantastic day to help celebrate a very successful first year of brewing beer and making food. We would love to thank everyone who made the trip to celebrate with us. As well as everyone who has ever walked through our door or tried our beer either from a bottle-o or a tap and to all our stockists. Thank you so much for such an excellent year.
And here’s to many more!!
