Following a three-month refurbishment, the Byron Bay Brewery is ready to reopen its doors on Friday (September 16).

The venue’s owner Lion said it will continue to offer ‘the highest quality, fresh and flavoursome craft beers’.

‘We are excited to open the doors to the Brewery and share the revitalised space with locals and visitors alike,’ said Lion’s craft director Gordon Treanor.

‘We believe we have developed a high-quality yet accessible food and beverage experience that showcases what the Byron region has to offer.

‘We also know how important the Brewery is to the local region,’ Gordon said.

Head brewer Alastair Gillespie, who has been with the Byron Bay Brewery since June 2015, is looking forward to the next chapter of the Brewery in Byron.

‘I’ve seen the work that’s gone into the renovation and I can’t wait for people to come in and see how great it looks.

‘Anyone who pops in will really enjoy the new experience on offer and I am really looking forward to brewing some of the popular ales made at the brewery over the years and also sharing some new lagers,’ Alastair said.
