Burleigh Brewing Company

This coastal brewery takes inspiration from its beachy surroundings.

Mention Burleigh to a southeast Queenslander, and the sight of one of the Gold Coast's best beaches will instantly pop into their head. As well as surf, sun and sand, however, the coastal spot is also home to Burleigh Brewing Co — with Brennan and Peta Fielding setting up shop in the industrial part of the suburb more than a decade ago.

The focus here is on a craft-driven approach, and sticking local in terms of ingredients and materials. Also worth noting: Burleigh doesn't use sugar in its brews. That doesn't mean that its Twisted Palm Tropical Pale Ale won't go down sweetly, though, with the 2016 World Beer Championships Gold Medal-winner featuring orange, mango and papaya notes. Unsurprisingly, it's inspired by Burleigh beach.

Located on Harley Drive at Burleigh Heads, Burleigh Brewing Co's headquarters offers beers on tap and behind-the-scenes tours — aka the two staples everyone wants from a taphouse and brewery. It's only doing takeaways at present, which includes beers and growler refills, and its backstage tours are expected to return in September.
