Brouhaha are set to open their second Sunshine Coast facility and taproom next week which will see the independent brewery increase production by 500 per cent.
Located at the Aura Business Park in Baringa, which is inland from Caloundra, Brouhaha Sunshine Coast is set over 1,500 square metres, featuring exposed concrete walls, two mezzanine levels, a brewers lab and a double storey taproom with 16 taps.
The new seaside venue will produce 1.25 million litres of beer per year while the original Brouhaha venue in Maleny continues to operate and act as a pilot lab.
After turning the entire project around in just six months, Brouhaha co-founder Matt Jancauskas said his team are looking forward to opening their kegs across broader Queensland this week and distributing them Australia-wide in the coming months.
“We’ve made do in our Maleny digs for five years now, though by the start of this year demand was six times higher than what we were able to produce for our current stockists alone,” Matt said. “We’ve custom designed the brew house to suit the beers we make, which has been a massive step up for us in terms of automation and consistency for distribution – from huge custom kettles that sour our beer, to depalletisers that pack 80 cans per minute.
“Best of all, patrons can look out over the entire brewery and see the whole production process from the brew kit to the tanks and packaging lines; it’s pretty eye-catching and contributes to a really immersive experience.”
As for food and beverage, patrons can expect much more than just their favourite craft brews, with artisan spirits, a selection of Queensland wine and an innovative list of beer-inspired cocktails on offer.
A locally sourced bar snack menu of beer pretzels and cheese boards are also available, alongside a weekend rotation of food trucks operating from Friday to Sunday.
“We’re peddling the same community and locally focussed production lines but are expanding our offering in a family-friendly, pet-friendly space that is extremely accessible and will hopefully welcome many non-beer drinkers into the world of craft beer.”
Brouhaha Sunshine Coast will officially open on December 17 and is located at 1 Edison Crescent, Baringa. It will be open from 11am – 9pm Friday and Saturday, and 11am – 5pm on Sunday, with hours to be extended in the new year.
