June NEWS – Despite The Craziness, Beer Continued To Flow.

Hi everyone and a big welcome to all our new customers. We hope Covid19 has not caused you too much grief. We have been very busy here. Since the pubs have shut down, we have been selling plenty of keg-fridges. It is great to have beer on tap at home, and at around $1.80 per schooner, why would you not?!
Now you can watch the footy and drink beer on tap at home. Life’s great.

We would like to thank all our customers for their patience and understanding over the last few months.
Next time you are in grab some of our INVITATION CARDS and hand them out to some of your mates who are keen to enjoy great beer and great savings!  We will reward you with 15% off your next purchase if you recommend someone who comes in and spends at least $50 on their first visit. Word of mouth is one of our best advertising methods.

Beers Ready To Go

Occasionally we run out of one of Six “ready to go” beers but luckily, it is only for a day or two.
There is a 2 case minimum buy.
If you don’t own your own bottles or kegs to refill, we sell those too.
Call the brewery and book a time and get your craft beer topped up.

The SHARE BOARD is always a great way to get something different. Keep an eye on the Dark Beers and Stouts. They are always popular during these colder months.

When using the SHARE BOARD, please make sure you have kegs ready before the DUE DATE. If we have not heard from you, we will sell off your beer to the next person on the waiting list

A NEW BEER:

We have been busy creating a new beer for you. Unfortunately, due to the very unpopular COVID, we have not been able to promote it as much as we would have liked but stay tuned. It will be a  Golden coloured, light-bodied Canadian specialty style beer. Low bitterness and hop flavour, medium hop aroma.
We think this will be a big hit!
Perhaps we should name it Canadian COVID ??

DRY PACKS:

We do dry packs of all our beers. These are made fresh when ordered. Due to these very busy times please give us 48 hours notice to get it ready for you.

Covid-19 Hack #23

EASE OF RESTRICTIONS

We can’t thank all our supporters enough! To everyone who showed us support over the last few months, we truly appreciate it! We jumped through every hoop the Government threw at us. We stuck to the rules and did everything asked of us to try and mitigate the spread of the virus. We are so fortunate that we were able to keep brewing beer despite these crazy circumstances! I think each and every one of us Queenslanders should be proud that we have responded so well to the rules and can now start to enjoy the ease of restrictions. We can’t wait to be able to have the brewery full of customers again!

“Gold Coast’s Best deals for Keg Fridges “

KEG FRIDGE CARE
HOT TIPS FOR OWNERS 

   
HOT TIPS for people who have keg-fridges.
For those that DON’T own a keg fridge – my HOT TIP is… BUY ONE!

1. The most important thing of all is your beer glasses. Only buy good quality glasses. Never put them in a dishwasher. If you do, they will never hold a head again. Clean your glasses with hot water generally and every 2 weeks wet the inside of the glass and then sprinkle the inside with a good coating of table salt. Use a new dishcloth and rub in all the salt. This will keep your glasses in tip-top condition.
We sell HEADMASTER SCHOONER GLASSES, 570ml MUGS and the popular STAINLESS, DOUBLE INSULATED, VACUUM SEALED 450ml BEER CUPS.

2. Whenever you want to change your gas pressure you must disconnect all the gas lines off all the kegs, unwind your regulator pressure adjusting knob, release the pressure out of the lines so that the Low-Pressure Gauge is on zero, then wind your adjustment up to 8 or 10 psi depending on how many taps you have. Release the pressure in your kegs and then hook up again.

3. Whenever you change a gas bottle do a gas leak test. We have instructions for that.

4. If there is an electrical storm or a power outage/surge, just check your fridge temperature. Sometimes you may need to turn your fridge off for 10 minutes and then turn it on again.

5. If your fridge is icing up inside on the backplate, then that means you have air getting into the fridge. Check your gas line where it comes out of the fridge, check your seal on top of the fridge where the tower goes and check your door seal.

6. When putting kegs in your fridge, always face the gas post to the back and the beer post to the front. Run your beer lines around towards the front before connecting. If a beer line touches the backplate, then the beer will freeze in that part of the line. Also, in your fridge, the Thermostat Probe is situated off the right-hand wall, do not put kegs up against this. The first keg in should go in the middle at the back and the other two kegs at the front either side of the back one.
We still have plenty of Keg Fridges left at great prices. CLICK HERE TO VIEW KEG FRIDGES 

PLUS
  • we guarantee your warranty,
  • we personally check every fridge and make sure yours is good to go.
  • We test your regulator to make sure it’s good.
  • We even modify your kegs by replacing the poppet springs and the post-o-rings. This ensures that your posts won’t leak beer or gas. However, we do recommend that you do your own gas leak check every time you change a gas bottle.
  • Plus, we give you free beer.

NEW PRICE INCREASE FROM 1ST JULY

Over the last few months, we have absorbed many price rises to keep our prices affordable and competitive. Our excise, freight, gas, ingredients, have all gone up. Even our fridge prices have gone up by $60 and new keg prices have gone up $20 over the last 4 months. So far, we have managed to keep our prices low but as from the 1st July, we will be increasing our prices.

Beer will be going up $1 per carton or $2 per Keg.
Gas filling prices will go up $2 per cylinder.
New Keg prices will go up from $130 to $140.
Keg Fridge Package Deals will go up $40.
Some of our Spirit Essences will also be going up.

WE HAVE KEPT OUR INCREASES TO A BARE MINIMUM AND HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND.

I’D SAY I’LL DRINK TO THAT BUT HONESTLY, I’LL DRINK TO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING.

Did you hear us on Triple M Gold Coast radio??

Step 3

  • Return beef to pan. Add garlic, thyme, cinnamon and bay leaves, and toss to combine. Add stock and beer. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 1 hour.

In the meantime, we still have plenty of cold beer to keep you happy & sane.
