New Breweries in 2018

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

The total number of new craft breweries that opened in Australia in 2018 was 100;

Of those 100 breweries:

  • 37% are contract, or gypsy brewers
  • 39% are small breweries. These are the nano and pub breweries
  • 23% are medium size. These are the micro-breweries producing between 50,000 and 300,000 litres per year
  • 1% are large breweries. These are the ones that have a regional and national presence.

We have a small favour to ask – Craft Beer Reviewer is an independent site helping to increase the information about craft beer breweries in Australia and provide data to support the whole industry. We do not charge for this service, so you can see why we need to ask for your help. Help us maintain The Brewery List, please donate via Paypal
