A story which started with an avocado working farm overlooking Mt Warning, an old tin packing shed and a vision forged in the red earth of our home - The Tweed Valley.
Now one year on from opening our doors we have delivered on the vision of creating ultra quality beer, but it was a dream only realised because of the support of the Cudgen and Tweed River community. From day one we received an enormous amount of support and loyalty from these residents which gave us an opportunity to create a business that was built using the DNA of the local community.
Across 2020 we released 12 beers to the market with every glass poured having a connection back to the land through it’s ingredients. Sustainable production has been important from the start for Head Brewer Zeke Hower which is why when possible we grow and use produce where the brewery resides including, mangoes for the weiss beer, avocados for the Kolsch and honey for the coffee porter. Our farm to schooner process enhances the flavours of the brew through the use of organic and fresh ingredients, whilst also ensuring that our brewing function is set up as a sustainable operation, limiting our carbon footprint now and into the future.
Looking ahead at 2021 we will be releasing a new beer each month and focusing on local charity collaborations to further embed the Earth Beer company brand into our partnership with the local community. We have so many new programs to share with our customers across 2021 but the one we're really excited about is our Community keg initiative as it's a chance for Earth Beer Company to support charities that are important to cudgen residents. Starting from late Jan you will be able to purchase a beer from the keg of the month with 100% of its profit being given back to that month's featured charity organisation.
We can’t wait to welcome you back to Earth Beer Brewery in 2021 and thank you again for all of the support you have shown us during our first year of operation.
Tom, Richie, Zeke and the Earth Beer family.
