Established in 2012 Fortitude Brewing Company has quickly become one of the Gold Coast’s and for that matter, Australia’s most well known breweries.
In the few short years they have been operating, they have experienced massive growth and have no plans on slowing down.
Employing Australia’s first beer sommelier as their head brewer, Ian Watson and his team have created five signature beers for the brewery that will knock your socks off. They also keep about five specialty beers on the go, keeping craft beer fans on their toes.
Fun fact: Their light beer Pacer 2.8 is so packed with flavour, it has made Fortitude Brewing Company the only brewery in the country to have a light beer as their best seller (nice on the lips and easy on the hips)!
Fortitude Brewing Company is located within a GIGANTIC facility where you can take a peek behind the scenes via the huge glass windows in the vintage decorated ‘retro room’. Belly up to the onsite bar, Cellar Door and grab a beer (we suggest a tasting paddle so you can try ‘em all), one of their homemade pizzas (the BBQ Chicken is mighty tasty) and make yourself cozy at a table on the timber beamed patio. As you are trying the beer onsite, Cellar Door guarantees the beer on tap is always fresh (taste those hops)!
If beer isn't your thing (heaven forbid) not to worry, Cellar Door stocks Witches Falls Wines as well.
Thinking about coming up for a visit? They are open everyday, but on weekends with the addition of live music on the patio, the brewery is always a buzz. Ask any local and they will tell you it’s a top spot for a cheeky weekend drink!
