Black Hops Bio / Story (full version)

Black Hops Brewing is 3 mates making craft beer and sharing everything they learn along the way. After discussing a concept over beer at the pub, Dan, Eddie and Govs set off to make their first beer, the Eggnog Stout. Once the pilot brew batch was out, their attention quickly turned to doing a proper commercial brew. Within a few months they had their Eggnog Stout out in bars and got to work on building their own brewery on the Gold Coast.

In 2015, they brewed the world’s first official Call of Duty beer, a Midnight Pale Ale. In 2016, they successfully raised $17,000 via a crowdfunding campaign to become the first Aussie brewery to launch via crowdfunding. They opened the doors to their own brewery and taproom in Burleigh Heads in June 2016 situated within walking distance of the iconic Burleigh Beach.

Black Hops was awarded 5 Gold Medals at the 2018 Australian International Beer Awards in Melbourne, more than any other brewery. In addition Black Hops took out the coveted trophies of Champion Belgian Style Ale for Beach House and Champion Small Australian Brewery.

In 2019 Black Hops became Australia’s first company to hit their maximum equity crowdfunding target raising $400,000 in just 6 days to help fund the build of their second brewery, Black Hops II. In March 2019 the brewery and taproom was launched, the first of its kind on the north end of the Gold Coast. The new brewery is one of the biggest independently owned breweries in Queensland featuring a 60 Hectolitre brew house and 180 hectolitre fermenters.

At the RQFWS Queensland Beer Awards in March 2019, Black Hops were awarded 4 of the 13 total Gold Medals awarded and took home Trophies for Best Pale Ale, Best IPA, Champion Queensland Brewery and Champion Brewery.

In addition to making beer Black Hops is a passionate supporter of charity and community organisations, supporting at least one different cause each month via its community program.

Black Hops Bio / Story (short version)

Black Hops Brewing started as 3 mates making beer and sharing everything they learned along the way. In 2014, Dan, Eddie and Govs made their first beer, the Eggnog Stout, after discussing the concept at the pub. That led them to opening up a brewery and taproom in Burleigh Heads in 2016, and being awarded Australia’s Champion Small Brewer at the 2018 AIBA Awards. Black Hops launched its upscale production brewery in Biggera Waters in March 2019. These days Black Hops is one of Australia’s highest rated and fastest growing breweries, with a team of 15 full time staff we make and distribute beer to 400+ venues around Australia.

Black Hops Taproom Bio

Australia’s Champion Brewery right on your doorstep. Black Hops have two locations on the Gold Coast, their original brewery and taproom in Burleigh (HQ) and their new production brewery and taproom in Biggera Waters (Black Hops II).

Black Hops started as a simple idea over a beer with 3 good mates Dan, Eddie and Govs. That lead to the first Black Hops beer, the Eggnog Stout. Their award-winning beers are unpasteurised and made with no preservatives. Each Taproom has a selection of 14 beers on tap, so there’s sure to be a beer for every palate.
