From little things, big breweries grow

The Cairns waterfront is the location for a new state-of-the-art brewery: Hemingway’s Brewery Cairns.

The brewery is beginning to take shape at Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal Shed 2 overlooking Trinity Outlet and will incorporate facilities with 10 times the capacity of Hemingway’s original venture at Port Douglas.

The multi-million dollar development will comprise a gastro brewpub and extensive events space in addition to the brewery, which will house seven 7000-litre fermentation tanks.

The venue’s restaurant will serve quality gastro pub-style food made from locally sourced ingredients, while a providore will showcase FNQ craft produce and a dedicated event space will cater for the MICE events and weddings.
Brewery founder Tony Fyfe said the opening of Hemingway’s Brewery Cairns would provide a tourism drawcard as the region’s economy experienced a renewed spike in both domestic and international visitation, while also catering to locals through its focus on investing in the community.

"Like Hemingway’s Brewery in Port Douglas, we are creating a special place that will be embraced by both locals and visitors who appreciate the character and authenticity of a brewery with its roots firmly planted in Far North Queensland,” Fyfe said.

“Hemingway’s Brewery aims to build and operate the best gastro brew pubs in the country with a focus on brewing great craft beer, which is becoming increasingly popular as people discover the amazing taste of a beverage that is unfiltered, unpasteurised and preservative-free; made with just four key ingredients – yeast, hops, base malts and water.

“When completed, our state-of-the-art brewery in Cairns will be like nothing ever seen before in the region, boasting an incredible capacity to brew a wide selection of high quality, fresh craft beers, produced in small batches for optimum purity and brewed by locals, for the locals.”
A total of 56 craft beer and cider taps will be available at the new brewery, with a further 50 boutique packaged, craft beers also available.

Since launching in July last year, Hemingway’s Brewery in Port Douglas has become one of the town’s most popular venues, sought out by locals and visitors for its inherently authentic ambience and picturesque marina location.

The venue is expected to open mid-2018 and will create more than100 new jobs in the region.
