Welcome to the OG of craft beer on the Gold Coast brewery circuit, the proudly independent Burleigh Brewing. This is a local success story of epic proportions and the lifelong dream of husband-and-wife founders Brennan and Peta Fielding — Brewmaster and CEO, respectively. Their love of craft beer is reflected in the “deliberately simple” Burleigh Brewing ethos to create “balance, character and soul”. Alongside the malt, hops and yeast, these traits are equally as important ingredients that go into crafting multi-award-winning beers currently celebrating 28 World Gold Medals. In this brewery, the essence of the local Burleigh lifestyle is authentically bottled into a diverse range of beers sharing apt names like Burleigh Mid-Tide, Burleigh Blonde and Burleigh Twisted Palm. Think of it as a salty salute to surfed-out, sun-drenched days that end perfectly with friends sipping on a local frosty brewed in the backyard of one of the world’s best surf breaks. STOKED!
When you enter the architecturally designed Burleigh Brewing, you can instantly tell it’s a facility that brews with passion and purpose. A stack of huge tanks spins their golden goodness in the busy background with the alfresco Taphouse upfront, an inviting industrial-beachy-farmhouse vibe that warrants a good sit and sip sampling from the freshly tapped kegs. The casual seating and dining areas include large share benches, which are a great way to strike up a chat with fellow beer lovers who are always keen to discuss the subtle nuances of an expertly concocted craft number. Like the “tropical aromas and characters of orange, mango and papaya”, fruitily ever-present in the Burleigh Twisted Palm, or the revolutionary, 100% natural Burleigh Bighead No-carb Lager traditionally brewed to offer “a full-flavoured, crisp, clean taste”. Whatever floats your beer boat, there’s plenty to choose from in this progressive thinking Taphouse.
The friendly crew at Burleigh Brewing are also partial to throwing some awesome events that support fellow local artisans like surfboard shapers, custom bike builders, contemporary artists, talented musicians and some of the country’s best skaters who are invited to the annual Burleigh Keg Jump to see who ollie can the furthest — up to 11 kegs! Their super-knowledgeable Brew Crew also take brewery tours which should be starting up again soon, and the onsite Burleigh Eats by Street Food Cartel has all your session cravings covered, serving sensational bites like gourmet burgers, fish tacos and open chicken gyros, just the tip of the tasting iceberg.
To put a cap on it, this truly is a world-class craft brewery offering a first-class beer experience that’s sure to go down as a must repeat visit whenever you drop by the Aussie beach icon that is Burleigh Heads. As they eloquently put it, “this is your beer”.
