A new Malt Shovel Taphouse is set to open at Stockland Birtinya, the first venue of its kind in Queensland.
Featuring a range of 16 rotating craft beers on tap, the taphouse will introduce ‘beer guides’ to take customers through a craft beer tasting experience. There will be private beer tasting zones, roaming ‘brew crews’, tasting flights and beer appreciation classes.
The design of the venue has a modern, industrial aesthetic with a coastal feel. There will be large scale murals, fresh greenery, naked timber and aged copper.
Live music, bespoke beer events and family entertainment will also be on offer, as well as a 400-capacity events and function space.
“Following the very successful launch of the first Malt Shovel Taphouse in Adelaide in late 2018, we are excited to bring a Malt Shovel Taphouse to the Sunshine Coast,” says Gordon Treanor, Lion’s general manager of craft.
“Malt Shovel’s fantastic range of beer brands will provide the ultimate ‘exbeer-ience’ for locals and tourists alike.”
The venue is being designed by Ignite Architects.
“Neighbourhood-inspired, the venue has been created to be the premier family entertainment destination in Birtinya,” says Jason Marriott, project director of Ignite Architects. “With extensive experience in leisure and entertainment venues, Ignite has tailored this venue to be non-pretentious to align with the relaxed Sunshine Coast lifestyle.”
The Malt Shovel Taphouse will open in late August 2019, and will trade seven days a week, with lunch and dinner menus, live music and bespoke events around craft beer.
