Wineries & Breweries

The wine and craft beer scene has never been better on the Gold Coast, so it’s the perfect time to explore what our region has to offer. There are plenty of options available, depending on what you’re interested in. There are plenty of companies who offer guided winery tours, or, if you’re able to allocate designated driver, doing a tour in the comfort of your own vehicle is also a great choice! Here are our top picks of wineries and breweries on and around the Gold Coast.

Balter Brewing Company

Balter Brewing

Tucked away in Currumbin is one of the Gold Coast’s newest breweries, Balter Brewing Company. Balter offer brewery tours, or alternatively, it’s a great spot to spend a Sunday afternoon. Friday – Sunday at Balter sees a local food truck pull up and serve tasty meals, while Balter provides the beer and beats. Check their social pages – @balterbrewers – to find out who’ll be dishing up what, when!

Burleigh Brewing Co

Burleigh Brewing Co

The original fixture on the Gold Coast beer landscape was Burleigh Brewing Co, who pioneered the craft beer movement in 2006. With quirky names such as “My Wife’s Bitter” and “Hasslehop”, Burleigh Brewing Co have a diverse range including IPAs, pale ales and lagers. Their craft brewery and taphouse is definitely worth a visit with live music and local food trucks. Plus, you’ll be doing your bit for the community as each month they donate a portion of their Taphouse proceeds to a worthy local cause.
