Cupitt Craft Brewers are a  NSW South Coast Brewery.   Family owned, we take pride in producing outstanding beer in a beautiful part of the world.   We have a deep respect for the immense history and strong traditions of brewing, but don’t let that get in the way of exploring new styles and flavours. The character is paramount, as is balance, and we revel in perfecting classic styles as much as we have fun pushing the boundaries of beer.
Our brewery was established in 2014 after Wally and Tom Cupitt had dreamed for many years about opening one alongside the existing winery and restaurant.   Before Wally started making wine, he was a fanatic home brewer and honed his brewing skills with a work experience stint at the 4 Pines Brewery in Manly. Tom’s passion for craft beer stems from his time living in London, where he fell in love with traditional ales and lively beer culture. Together with Head Brewer Liam Jackson, they continue to make beer that they enjoy drinking.  All our beer is produced on the Cupitt family property and is sold almost exclusively here at our restaurant and casual bar. We hope you visit and enjoy the brews as much as the views.


The Brewery and the beers have both been receiving some great awards over the past few years. Find out which beers here.


Our Brewery is not open to the public (except via the behind-the-scenes Tour + Taste Experience), but our Cupitt Craft Brewers beer selection is available to sample at the Budawang Bar. We have five keg draught beer taps and one cask ale handpump beer to ensure there’s a great selection on offer.

Tasting Paddles are available and include a choice of 4 beers for $14 (equivalent to 1 pint).

Open from Wednesday – Sunday at from 10 am until 5 pm.


We do have a limited selection of cans and bottles of some of our beers available. Drop into our Cellar Door to purchase.


We are currently also available from the following venues and bottleshops:


South Coast NSW Brewery - Kolsch - Cupitt's Craft BrewersSouth Coast NSW Brewery - Mild - Cupitt's Craft Brewers

Kolsch (4.8% ABV,  23 IBU)
Pale Straw in colour, with delicate fruity aromas and a smooth crisp mouthfeel. Soft and malty on the palate with a refreshing bitterness to finish. A very clean German ale.

Mosaic Session Ale (4.4% ABV,  25 IBU)
This single hop ale features the distinctive Mosaic hop. Passionfruit and papaya aromas jump out of the glass, from an easy going package that is restrained in bitterness.

Cupitt Pale Ale  5.2% ABV, 45 IBU) 
Pale Ale at the amber end of the spectrum packed full of US Cascade Hops & a nice dose of Crystal Malts mixed with the Golden Promise Base Malt

Golden Ale (7.7% ABV, 25 IBU)
Golden / Blonde ale is fermented with one of our favourite strains of Belgian yeast, hailing from the Ardennes region, and displays subtle yet complex combinations of spice, honey and fruit. Despite its strength, this beer finishes quite dry, as per style.

Cupitt Mild (Hand Pump) (4.4% ABV, 19 IBU)  
This traditional ale presents with a mousse-like head and a silky, creamy mouthfeel thanks to its serving method. Aromas of toffee dominate from the heavy-handed use of caramelised malts, with dried fruit like esters also apparent, produced by the British ale yeast used.
