At Brouhaha, our Head Chef, James Ostridge, and his team pride themselves on providing our guests with only the best locally sourced produce from the Maleny and Sunshine Coast Hinterland Regions. Maleny is a small community, and this shows not only through our relationships with our guests and suppliers but also through the partnerships that we have made with our food producers.
We have created a “circle of life” with our beef supplier, Maleny Wagyu. As grain is a byproduct of the brewing process, all of our spent grain, or mash, is sent to Ken at Maleny Waygu, who then uses it to finish off his cows. Once Ken’s cows are ready for sale, our Chefs head down to Maleny Wagyu, and personally, hand pick our next batch of fresh beef.
Maple Streets Meats help select the prime cuts and also make the delicious Brouhaha Milk Stout and Maleny Wagyu Bangers. With a “Snout to Tail” mentality, nothing goes to waste. All offcuts are used to create a Brouhaha Dog food.
So next time you come into Brouhaha Brewery to sip on a beer and enjoy a steak or Brouhaha Milk Stout and Maleny Wagyu Bangers, know that every beer that you enjoy is just one small, but a valuable step, in the process of producing some of Maleny’s best Waygu Beef. Because the beer that you drink, help creates the grain that help feeds the cows that end up feeding you.
We have all dreamt of owning a craft brewery and living the glamorous life of an independent brewer. On Saturday 1 July, we let 11 lucky blokes live out this dream, but making wake up before the sun and get to the brewery at 6 am on a cold Maleny morning.
These guys were going to take part in a Collab Brew, organised by Calibre Craft Beer Trading Co., between Matt and Ben from Brouhaha and Brendan from 3 Ravens (Vic). The brew was a New England Style IPA, which will be the first of its kind brewed in the Brouhaha Brewery.
The boys were set to work from the moment the stepped through the door with the important brewing task of grating orange zest and juicing oranges and eating croissants. They were walked through the brewing process by the three brewers and gained a little bit of knowledge and insight on the way through.
After completing all the hard work, everyone got to taste a few fantastic brews that Brendan brought up with him from Victoria and got the chance to pick his brain for brewing pointers.
This was the first of these days we have done at Brouhaha, but it most definitely won’t be the last. We are sorry if you miss out this time, with spots filling within 6 hours. Keep your eyes posted for our next brew day. Make sure you follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
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!!
