Breweries – Queensland
For a state with such a warm climate, Queensland falls surprisingly short in the beer stakes. Its best-known and longest-running brewery Castlemaine (producer of XXXX) dominates the market; local beer diversity is lacking, with boutique breweries thin on the ground. However, new players Burleigh Brewing and BlueSky are shaping up as serious contenders.
