The Coastal Brewing Company

The Coastal Brewing Company

The Coastal Brewing Company is a family-owned microbrewery based in the coastal town of Forster, NSW. Following incorporation in 2016, premises fit-out and equipment installation in early 2017, production commenced in May 2017.

Being based in Forster and part of the wonderful Great Lakes/Manning Valley, community is playing a big role in the brewery’s strategy and operations. For The Coastal Brewing Company, it’s all about enjoying L.I.F.E – that’s local, independent, fresh, everytime.

Using all natural ingredients on a 1,200 litre brewhouse, the brewery produces fresh, craft beer for sale in kegs to restaurants, bars, clubs and pubs. Beer is also canned onsite and sold through bottlestores, restaurants and bars.

The brewery also has a Tasting Room where it offers brewery tours, a beer tasting experience (using 89mL or 200 mL tasting size glasses) and fills ‘growlers’ and ‘squealers’ for take-away consumption. Six packs and cases of 24 cans are also sold from the Tasting Room.

Building on its enjoying L.I.F.E focus, all of the Coastal Brewing Company beer names link to the natural beauty of the Great Lakes/Manning Valley area in NSW.

The head brewer is David Black who has a Graduate Certificate in Brewing from Federation University. Prior to establishing the brewery he spent 25 years as a Chartered Accountant with a large accounting firm.  Co-owner Helen Black has 20 years’ experience in marketing and looks after sales, customer care, communications, freight and distribution at the brewery.

Friendly couple who have a lot of knowledge about brewing beer. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the workings and the beer sampling after. The milk stout was a lovely surprise and is now a firm favourite.

Went today for a tasting paddle, had some great beers and the staff were super friendly and accommodating. Will definitely be back. Loved the sour beer.

I think one of the only (if not the only!) craft breweries in the Barrington Coast region. Well worth a visit if you are staying in Forster/Pacific Palms/Great Lakes. Brilliant range of beers all named after local sights including a 2.9% Berliner Weisse (Sugarloaf Sour) which is great for drivers! Owned by a friendly couple.
