David Gander, founder of Pacific Ocean Brewing in Tuncurry, said via email in December that constructing his brewery “hasn’t been an easy process, especially with COVID-19 impacting [the] project and the demands from the council.”
However, he and his partner Jane “have successfully completed the installation of the brewery with the assistance and support of Brewtique.”
“Looking ahead, our next steps in the new year include building the bar, kitchen, and restroom facilities,” David said.
Breakwall Brewing Co opened in Narooma on December 22, 2023, with a 10hL system.
According to recent media reports, Pickled Monkey Brewing is set to open in Marrickville in mid February. The brewery ran a crowd-sourced funding campaign via OnMarket in December, aiming to raise $2 million on a valuation of $5.1 million. Unusually for a brewery crowd-sourced funding campaign, the raise was private with no details of the amount raised released, though Brews News understands it exceeded the $100,000 minimum for the raise.
