Since setting up shop just two short years ago, Balter Brewing has been making waves. You'd expect that from a brewery that boasts surfers Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson, Bede Durbidge and Josh Kerr among its owners, of course, but the outfit's beers speak for themselves. Indeed, in last year's Hottest 100 Craft Beers, the Gold Coast-based establishment took out top spot. More than that, they nabbed five places in the entire list.
Wondering what all the fuss is about? Already tried Balter's XPA and have never looked back? Either way, Fritzenberger is the place to be from 3pm on Saturday, June 30. The Petrie Terrace bar will be showcasing the brewery's bevs, and they'll have help in the form of Fanning himself.
Six Balter beers will be flowing through the taps, with Fanning behind the bar serving up a few. Whether you're a surfing fan, a beer lover or both, it might be the only time you can say that the Aussie surfing champ has poured you a schooner.
