Business events and latest news for the Sunshine Coast region
Moffat Beach Brewing Co has been a part of the Sunny Coast craft beer community since the infant years of the industry. Founders Matt and Sharynne, have been busy making exciting new products with other local businesses, providing mentoring for budding brewers and much more.
The brewery has found great opportunities to collaborate with local businesses in fun and creative ways. Stand out collaborations have included the coffee stout, which was made in partnership with local coffee roaster, Tim Adams. Boocock Quality Meats found another use for MBBC’s Dark Ale in a new sausage recipe, quickly becoming one of the butcher’s fastest selling snags.
MBBCs involvement in ‘Battle of the Brews’ has seen Matt share his expertise with home brewers looking to improve their craft. The event hosted by the Sunshine Coast Amateur Brewers Society is held at MBBC’s Caloundra brewery where the home brewers have their beers trialled and tested by Matt who then picks a winner to brew a commercial batch with him through the MBBC system.
MBBC has been named one of the Local Business Champions in this year’s Sunshine Coast Council series which highlights Sunshine Coast businesses and their contribution to local industry and community.
