Closed Craft Beer Breweries

Every few months we update our Brewery List with all the changes to craft beer breweries in Australia.

This usually means adding extra new breweries, but occasionally there are a few that close, or are deleted from our list due to inactivity. These are now listed below.

We have not included those breweries that have had a name change.
