eatdrink: Tamborine and Tamborine Mountain

Beard and Brau

Beard & Brau is a Queensland farmhouse brewery staying very true to style: a farmhouse brewery on an actual farm.

In 2012 Tanya Harlow and Chris Herring moved from Adelaide (home of their previous brewery) to Tamborine, at the foot of Tamborine Mountain where they have since put their hearts and minds into constructing a brewery that uses locally grown ingredients in an environmentally friendly environment.

Featuring a range of six core beers, several experimental brews and many one-off seasonal releases, Beard & Brau highlight the use of local ingredients, from honey to orange blossom, tart mulberries to stinging nettles. The beers, like the brewery’s name and logo, have a dog-related theme: Golden Paw, Red Tail, Black Snout and Bon Chiens farmhouse ale, for example, all in honour of their pet Schnauzers.

The Bearded Dragon Boutique Hotel have the Beard and Brau brews on tap and you can check their website to see where else you can try their beers
