About Little Rivers Brewing Company
Little Rivers Brewing Co. is a Tasmanian boutique style craft brewery situated in the North-Eastern town of Scottsdale that provides Tasmanian and visitors alike with a handcrafted, quality range of beer. The brewery is only a stones through away from the famous Pipers River wine route, internationally recognized golf courses Barnbougle Dunes and Lost Farm and a mere 30 minutes drive to Australia’s most exciting mountain biking track, Blue Derby. Little Rivers Brewing Co. is the brainchild of head brewer Chris Carins. The microbrewery was set up when Chris moved back to Tasmania in 2012 after working as the brewer for Burleigh Brewing in Queensland and gaining 7 years experience in winemaking at Pipers Brook Vineyard. The first production batches of Little Rivers beers went on sale in February 2014 and the response has been well beyond expectations. Due to the demand, a substantial upgrade was installed in late 2015. The 1500 litre brewing system was fully functional from February 2016. Little Rivers is in bars, on tap and in bottle shops throughout Tasmania as well as distributed throughout Melbourne and Sydney CBDs.
Little Rivers Brewing Co. makes craft beers using local and imported ingredients from around the world. Little Rivers has a selection of approachable, easy drinking premium beers and seasonal releases. Our products contain no preservatives or additives making our ingredients “water, malt, hops, yeast – and nothing else!
