Remember the days of visiting your neighbourhood cheese shop and deli, where cheese was wrapped lovingly by hand and priced by the gram? Where you could talk to someone about its origins and terroir, and find just what you were looking for? Well, now you can revisit those times.

Bottle & Hoop in Brunswick Heads is now open – with cheeses, charcuterie, and an array of delicious accompaniments sourced both locally and from farther afield. Olives, pasta, preserved lemons, sustainably sourced tinned fish, cultured butter, and black garlic are just a few of the items available.

Owner Louisa Mudge is passionate about small-batch artisan goods and providing the community with an alternative to large-scale supermarket offerings. Good old-fashioned service and knowledge about epicurean goods in an unpretentious atmosphere is what Bottle & Hoop is all about.

Conveniently, it’s open on the weekends, so pop down and check out the range and have a chat to Louisa about your favourite cheeses and smallgoods, or pick up a basket and create your ideal hamper. It’s just the place to stock up on your picnic, pantry, and platter needs.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10am – 5pm
Saturday and Sunday 10am – 4pm
