When it comes to ensuring you have a drink in your hand for all occasions, you cannot look past the versatile, low calorie and deliciously easy-to-drink seltzer. Humble, zesty, and never out to get you, this drink is perfect on a hot summer’s day beachside, actually… it’s enjoyable just about anywhere at any time!
For those who appreciate this tasty and refreshing libation, Hard FIZZ is a name that over the last 12 months has exploded onto the scene with delicious and imaginative drinks. And if you aren’t familiar, take this as a sign that you ought to be. The Gold Coast brand has been involved with a slew of national events and has cemented itself as one of Australia’s go-to drinks in just its first twelve months.
The immersive headquarters in Burleigh’s expanding light industrial precinct has been expertly designed and executed by Zero 9 Constructions. Upon entry you’ll be welcomed into a huge courtyard leading into where the fun begins. The brewery vats are on full display, with a bar featuring pink and aqua highlights. No bar is complete without a fun neon and in this case, everyone is encouraged to ‘Let’s get fizzy’.
Patrons are now offered the chance to taste their freshly brewed fizz straight from the tap. As well as opportunities for fans to walk in and create their own personalised flavours! Oooooh yes! We are here for this.
If this wasn’t enough though, the venue will also feature a lineup of local Gold Coast beers, artisan spirits and everyone’s favourite, Mr Consistent, as an exciting collaborative cocktail on tap — just in case you feel like mixing it up.
The team behind this successful and fun-fuelled drink is a who’s who of Gold Coast personalities, including international DJ’s Paul Fisher, Brooke Evers and Tigerlilly, along with professional surfers Laura Enever and Nikki Van Dijk, celebrity chef Hayden Quinn and hospitality heavyweights, Billy and Jackie Cross.
The new Burleigh ‘HQ’ will encourage patrons to hang out, share a fizz or two, and watch how it is all put together. (With lashings of fun and laughter, naturally!)
Chief of Fizz, Wade Tiller, is excited about the brand and the opening mentioning “Seltzer is most definitely the drink of choice around the world at the moment, but we’re [Hard FIZZ] proudly Gold Coast and are so stoked to be keeping it here in our hometown. We just want to be synonymous with fun — I think we’re doing that.”
The headquarters will also have food offerings such as bao buns and poke bowls and will be operating Thursday through to Sunday from noon to 9pm, with huge plans to bring a huge schedule of local up-and-coming DJs with deftly curated soundtracks to your summer. We. Are. In.
Gold Coasters, the only thing left to do is get fizzy!
