The Craft Beer Guide to Queensland is a great little book filled with everything you need to know about craft beer in the Sunshine State.
The introduction covers the basics of beer making with the main section of the book covering the breweries. For each brewery, there is a couple of paragraphs about the place, address, contact details, website and colour photographs.
The book has a comprehensive listing of the nearly 70 craft beer breweries in Queensland, and the best bars and bottle shops to try their beers.
Did you know there have been craft beer breweries in Queensland since 1988?
The industry has seen a big resurgence with a new brewery opening every 4 weeks. The history of craft beer is an interesting read – where it has evolved with four distinct periods: pioneers, developers, new wave and today’s gold rush.
“This guide is your key to discovering the growing craft beer industry in Queensland, allowing you to choose the breweries you want to visit, and discovering the local brews you might like to try.”
“We believe that the best place to try a beer, at least for the first time, is at the brewery itself, where you can see it being made, talk to the brewer, and taste it as it should be tasted – fresh and in perfect condition. This experience is similar to the cellar door concept of winemakers. But if you can’t make it to the source then we’ve also included a listing of the key bars and bottle shops that stock craft beer around the Sunshine State. ”
