Calling all beer lovers: go small this Saturday


This Saturday will see lovers of craft brews from fans across Australia coming together to say “Cheers to Indie Beer”.

Indie Beer Day will feature a nationwide synchronised toast at 7pm (AEST), to celebrate resilience, survival, and easing (in some states) of Covid-19 restrictions. 

Breweries and pubs across the country will hosting celebrations (both physical and virtual), launching beers, and offering special deals to help us raise a glass to independent brewers. 

“With restrictions eased in most states, we need Indie Beer Day now more than ever," said Independent Brewers Association (IBA) general manager Kylie Lethbridge. 

"We need the people who love and support indie producers to give our industry a much-needed boost in every way. 

Many indie breweries are located in regional areas, so the loss of regional tourism and pub closures has hit them hard.

“Whether you’re buying takeaway beers, ordering your indie mixed pack online, having a small gathering with mates or heading to your favourite local for drinks, make sure you ask for indie beer and raise a drink with us at 7pm on the 25th.”

Sydney’s Northern beaches will hit party mode as Modus Operandi celebrates its sixth birthday with new brews, top food, and tunes, while in Queensland, newly established Straddie Brewing Company will be launching their Point Lookout Lager, and Bribie Island Brewing Company will be reopening their doors for the first time since lockdown. 

Over in South Australia, Little Bang Brewing Company is showcasing 21 indie beers on tap from around the country. 

From Margaret River to the Top End and all the way down south in New Norfolk, Tasmania, there are events scheduled.
