About the Brewery:

Born and raised in Byron Bay, we're proudly independent and local, brewing and bottling our approachable beer in the Northern Rivers of NSW.

After catching a wave, a band at the pub, exploring the hinterland or catching up with friends, in this part of the world people enjoy having a beer. We brew beer for times like these - beers for the locals, friends passing through and those who appreciate good beer.

This region's natural beauty, the colourful, eclectic and community-minded people and the conscious approach to living inspire us and our beers.

It has shaped our philosophies and our values, influencing our approach to business and to living a good life. We try to not over complicate things, keep it simple and real, while using beer as a force for good.

The way of living around here is the way it should be.
