The Craft Beer Guide to Queensland by Barrel Media [©Barrel Media]


The Beer Lovers Guide and Barrel Media and Events have launched a new craft beer guide for Queensland, the first in a state series showcasing the ever increasing number of breweries popping up around the country.

Although craft beer may seem to be an emerging and increasingly recognised term for beer from small, boutique breweries, there have been craft beer breweries in Queensland since 1988. However, there has been a huge resurgence in opening of new breweries since 2014, with a new brewery opening every four weeks!

The Craft Beer Guide to Queensland 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.

The book includes a comprehensive listing of the nearly 70 craft beer breweries in the state and the best bars and bottle shops to where their beers can be found.

The publishers say "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."

Chapters include:

  • What is Craft Beer?
  • How is Craft Beer made?
  • Appearance, Aromas & Tastes
  • Queensland Breweries & complete listing
  • The History of Craft Beer in Queensland
  • Complete listing of Bars, Bottle Shops & Brewery Tours

The Craft Beer Guide to Queensland was officially launched at the Queensland Beer Week 16-19 November, 2017.
The Craft Beer Guide to Queensland is the first in a state series published by the Beer Lovers Guide and Barrel Media. (NSW, Nov 2017; 60pp; RRP A$14.95). It is sold in Queensland bars and bottleshops and can be purcahsed directly from the publisher here »
