INTRODUCING TWØBAYS BREWING CO.
Are you an avid beer drinker?
And have you recently been diagnosed as coeliac, or gluten intolerant, and can no longer enjoy beer? You are not alone!
Two Bays Brewing is the story of one man faced with this exact predicament.
When he was diagnosed with coeliac disease, Richard Jeffares made it his mission to make sure that any beer lover in the same position could continue to enjoy a quality gluten-free beer. After an extensive research trip across the United States, where he secured the exclusive rights to import the world’s finest gluten free malts to Australia and New Zealand, Richard set up shop on the stunning Mornington Peninsula to bring his dream to life.
After much experimentation, Two Bays debuted their first beers at the Coeliac Australia Gluten Free Expo. Attendees were asked to vote on their favourites to help build the core beer range, which began with a Pale Ale, IPA, Brown Ale, XPA and Summer Ale over the first year. The word spread fast and soon enough Two Bays was stocked in hundreds of bottle shops across Australia. In their second year, each of Two Bays’ core beers achieved #1 style rankings on Untapped, and the Pale Ale won gold at the Indies! Today, Two Bays continues to explore new ways of brewing to create gluten-free winter beers, sours and more.
Gluten free beers use grains such as millet, buckwheat and rice rather than the typical malts found in beer. The team take incredible care in selecting their ingredients to avoid any possible gluten contamination all the way from the farm to the brewhouse.
This ethos carries over to the Two Bays taproom in Mornington. Along with up to 20 taps of gluten-free beers, guests can enjoy a 100% gluten-free menu. And with a distillery, coffee roastery and more all within walking distance of the taproom, food and drink lovers are spoilt for choice in the area.
We are big fans of Two Bays here at Beer Fans and we can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
