I know we talk about beer a lot but I promise that it’s not all we do. Distilleries have a special place in our heart and we want to share that with you. Taking a leaf from the farm to table approach, the farm to bottle philosophy is becoming just as prominent. And this is true not only in the Northern Rivers but all along Australia’s east coast.
f you happen to find yourself in the Northern Rivers over the Easter long weekend; well done, you’ve come at the perfect time for live music, sunny skies and cold beer. Relish the intoxicating mix of nature, laid-back fun and cultural happenings.
It’s true, we do love the Northern Rivers and all it has to offer in terms of craft beer, friendly people and beautiful scenery. But we also know that there are so many other great areas and cities in Australia to explore when it comes to the world of craft beer. Today, we want to share with you some of those places.
It may be no surprise that the craft beer and spirits scene in Australia has been surging in growth and popularity for about 5 years now. If this wasn’t the case, we certainly picked the wrong area of business. But have you ever wondered why this is happening, especially in our beautiful home of the Northern Rivers?
No matter your reason for visiting the Byron area, whether it’s just a Byron Bay day trip or a famous Byron Bay hens weekend or a bucks party in Byron; maybe you are especially here for a cocktail masterclass to see what all the fuss is about. One of our tours will surely fit your needs. But before you book one of our tours, here is a little bit about all the places we visit…
The Australia Day long weekend is almost upon us. Barbecue and sausage sales are through the roof and people are already scouting out their beachside spots for the day. All of Byron Bay’s tours and Byron Bay’s beer are both already in full swing due to the holiday season.
You might get distracted by Byron’s pristine beaches and laid back atmosphere – and understandably so – but if you’re an individual or small business looking to network, Byron has some of the best small business owners in the world. The Northern Rivers has an abundance of community venues, run by community members, for your function or activity. These are inclusive places that come alive with various activities, a great place to meet new people and get involved.
In what’s becoming a not-so-secret garden, the Northern Rivers is still full of lesser-known locations that the locals are no doubt reluctant to give up. But it’s the Christmas season so why not share what our beautiful area has to offer.
Typically, hens and bucks (also known as bachelor and bachelorette) parties are one last day or night out with friends before a couple ties the knot. It may go without saying that it’s advisable to not hold your bucks/hens party the night before the wedding as you may need to allow for ample recovery time.
Behind the barrel, there is a face – and his name is Jarryd. He is the one making these fantastic tours happen. Behind the Barrel takes you behind the scenes of some of the best Northern Rivers craft breweries and distilleries.
