From the Concrete Playground Editors
From neighbourhood beer companies and distilleries, to the nation’s sprawling wine regions, Australia punches well above its weight when it comes to top tipples made in our own backyards — and that’s something worth recognising at every turn.
The easiest way to do just that? It’s also the tastiest way, and one that we can all say cheers to. Next time you crack open a few tinnies, pour yourself a glass of vino or splash some spirits into your cocktail, opt for a locally made beverage.
To help, we’ve partnered with BWS to create Local Drinks to Love. It’s our guide to the best beers, wines and spirits crafted close to home — and your new go-to next time you’re feeling thirsty. And be sure to keep checking back in, because there are plenty more drinks recommendations on their way.
From homegrown brews to a gin named after Brisbane — and you can vote for your favourite to be stocked in more local BWS stores.
