Welcome to the Brews News Australian brewery database. We have compiled the authoritative list of physical breweries in Australia as a measure of the growth and capacity of the Australian industry. As a database of physical breweries, we do not currently include itinerant/nomad businesses or brands made exclusively under contract arrangements. You can read more about why here.
To provide feedback on the database, including letting us know about breweries omitted or brands inadvertently included, please email [email protected].
Please note, for consistency, the categorisation around 'large' (>300,000 litres), 'small/medium' (<300,000 litres) and 'brewpub' (at least 75 per cent of beer produced is sold onsite) conforms to the Independent Brewers Association's definitions. Where a brewery is denoted 'independent' they are assessed to be eligible for membership of the IBA though are not necessarily members of the association.
