Fortitude Brewing Co: The next chapter…


January 13, 2014 by 250 Beers

And here we are again – yet another month and yet another piece of happy news in the region – Fortitude Brewing have finally nailed bigger premises. Congratulations to Ged, Jim, Ian and all concerned!

I had an inkling that they’d secured their goal after spotting the sly use of a hashtag on Instagram last month:


Having devised a ‘stayer’ of a beer in the form of the Original Golden Ale, it really was only a matter of time before the boys were going to outgrow their garage-sized home at the site of the old Eagle Heights Brewery.

Having a larger foundation at the now ex-Mount Tamborine (MT) Brewery frees up ‘the garage’ for those crazy Noisy Minor beers to be even crazier. It must be every brewers dream to have a smaller, fully functional brewery down the road from your workplace as a ‘lab’ to go nuts with experiments. I know that Mark Howes from Newstead Brewing Co. must be a little envious as already he is working all the hours God sends to keep up with demand for his NBCo. beers in the polished steel that he was hoping to be experimenting with. It’s a good problem to have and I’m sure the time will come for Mark to play.

I visited the MT Brewery last year and was amazed at the size of the place and was equally amazed that it wasn’t being used to its full potential. With a serious business plan, some sensible heads and good beer Fortitude could potentially be on the cusp of exploding (not literally of course as that would be messy and a terrible waste of beer).

I predict one or two more mainstay beers in the Fortitude core range this coming year (plus bottles of course) as well as a few goddamn, no faux, mo fo beers under that crazy Noisy Minor label.

The mountain will be well worth another visit from the 250 Beers clan in the not too distant future.

Congrats again guys.

    Awesome news.

  3. […] uniqueness I’m left with nine beers. Eight were bottles or cans apart from one which was Fortitude Brewing‘s Summer (3.2%) – quaffed during a hot day at Pig ‘n’ Whistle Riverside. […]

  4. […] – although this time around it was different. I’d been prattling on for weeks about how Fortitude Brewing had taken the reins of the brewery. With this in mind Mrs 250 Beers knew that a request for another jaunt to Mt Tamborine was on the […]
