Aaron has been brewing for many years, and with his passion for craft beer coupled with the commercial experience of Andrew Gow (formerly of Mountain Goat, Mornington Peninsula Brewery), the team is very excited about its beer journey ahead and what they will have to offer. “The vision for our brewery is basically a family-friendly community space that serves delicious beer and simple food to match. “We plan on welcoming musicians, artists, foodies and craft beer lovers week in week out, and we will have a wide open (securely fenced) space for the kids to run around.” The aim is to provide something for everyone so that small groups, couples and families can enjoy some time together in this space. “As our tagline suggests – Beach. Mountains. Beer – we are very aware that Woolgoolga is located in one of the most beautiful parts of our country, and we will work to celebrate and respect our environment and what it brings to our region as much as possible.” Almost there, the interior designer (Natural Habitat), and builder (Baldwin Group Building), are putting the final touches on the site. “We’re starting to hire staff and secure food trucks and musicians for the weekends.” Doors open in September.
