Saturday 12 March - Easy Times Brewing


Two Mates Brewery - South Lismore - GoFundMe 

The Two Mates Team have set up a Go Fund Me page to assist in the rebuild of their community-based Brewery in South Lismore. The devastation both financially and emotionally of the unprecedented events of the recent floods has their families in complete shock. However, they are resilient and determined to rebuild the brewery for the community now more than ever.

Unfortunately, their insurance company has notified them that their policy (like 90% of businesses in Lismore) does not cover flood damage if the floods exceed the levy wall. This has added to their devastation, having already funded the start-up phase of the business solely between the two families. Two Mates will direct all funds associated with this appeal into the re-establishment of all the Brewery and Taphouse operations, ensuring that they will return to delivering the same quality product and service as they did before this catastrophic natural disaster.

Lab Support - Gage Roads Brewing

If any affected breweries are in need of chemistry testing or lab support, including ABV% testing, the Gage Roads team has reached out to offer their help.
