Legendary local pro surfers Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson, Bede Durbridge and Josh Kerr, together with long-term mates and their main man, head brewer Scott Hargrave launched their first beer—the Balter XPA—in early 2016 and it is now one of Australia’s most recognised boutique beer brands. Balter Brewing Company has had an epic run thus far and it seems there’s no stopping these guys. Without question one of the coolest additions to the Coast in recent years, Balter’s Currumbin-based cellar door is open to the public Friday through Sunday afternoons, with their Sunday Sessions (complete with a food truck, exclusive beer samples, tunes, and a rad crew) being one of the Coast’s best ways to farewell the weekend. Period.
