We provide a wealth of experience during the process of building your brewery concept and building your actual brewing business
Brewtique have been providing expert advice and proven equipment to the Australian and Pacific markets for over 15 years. From small craft brewery solutions through to large scale production facilities, Brewtique has the right solution for every output requirement and budget. Having an experienced team who have worked in large scale commercial breweries through to being involved in small craft brewery start-ups we understand our customers’ needs and requirements.
Brewtique have done many brewery install projects right around the country and have developed close and long lasting relationships with the brewery owners during the process. Not only that, but the two owners of the business are shareholders in their own brewery business and have been through the very process you are undertaking with their own team, time, and money.
With all of this experience, Brewtique can not only offer well-designed, well-made brewing equipment through their partnership with NDL Craft International and Esau & Huber, but we will also provide a wealth of experience during the process of building your brewery concept and building your actual brewing business. We have also spent a great deal of time brewing on the equipment we design and sell and have worked hard to improve the quality of the beer that the breweries produce AND ensure that the precious energy of the brewing team is preserved to concentrate on beer quality, not on fighting with their equipment.
If you’re contemplating starting a brewery project take a look at our Signature Series range for small breweries and brewpubs and our Fermecraft fully-automated Master Series range for larger production breweries.
