SOUTH COAST BREWERY

Cupitt Craft Brewers has been operating since October 2014. Winemakers Wally and Tom Cupitt dreamed for many years about opening a brewery on the property to pair local produce with their beer.

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.

All our beers are single batch and brewed in a 300L microbrewery on the property. Our beers are unpasteurised, unfiltered and preservative free. Our processes are simple but aim to retain as much flavour from the ingredients; hops, malt, yeast and water as possible.

TASTING OUR BEERS

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 Breezeway 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 10am till 5pm.

WHERE ELSE TO ENJOY THEM
