Yep, you and your mates can craft your own brews based on the stubbies you know and love. Beer, ginger beer, cider, pizza, a punny name... there's nothing we don't love.

Gold Coast: Black Hops Brewery

With the title of 2018 Champion Small Australian Brewery under its belt, it's safe to say Black Hops Brewery knows a thing or two about crafting the perfect brew. Head to their OG taproom in Burleigh Heads to see where the magic started (and grab a cheeky tasting paddle), or check out their brand-new Biggera Waters production brewery and sample the newest creations with some food truck goodies to match.

Sydney: The Grifter Brewing Co.

Sydney has positively exploded with craft breweries in the last few years, so to stand out amongst the crowd, you need something really special. The Grifter Brewing Co. is just that. What started in 2012 as a collaboration between three mates has turned into a bonafide Marrickville institution with unique beers, food truck eats, good vibes. Oh, and did we mention it's doggo-friendly too?
