Brew your beer on demand
Can't think of the perfect gift for the man who has everything?

Scratch your head no longer.

By sheer accident I recently stumbled upon Red Bay Micro Brewery in Cleveland. Literally. I was looking along a row of commercial factories searching for an auto electrician when I came across this enterprise.

I can see you shaking your heads. What is a Micro Brewery exactly?

A microbrewery, also known as a craft brewery, produces smaller amounts of beer than a larger, commercial brewery, such as the beer you purchase out of the tap at your local hotel or your local liquor outlet.

At Red Bay Brewery there are ten different beers on tap, and over 200 beers that you can make yourself. For non beer drinkers there is also a range of ciders, as well as an alcoholic ginger beer and 4% iced green tea on the menu.

More importantly, the microbrewery provides all the facilities, equipment and ingredients needed for every step of the beer making process, including bottles and bottle caps.

You can select your beer variety, and should you wish, you can assist the friendly brewmaster who will brew your beer for you. The brew size is 50 litres.

DIY Beer, and not in Mum's kitchen. How ideal is this!

The friendly brewmaster provides information and guidance throughout the process.

Alternatively, you can purchase brews that are on hand, all of which are 100 % chemical and preservative free. (Minimum purchase is one bottle). As such you need to keep them cold all times.

To brew your own beer you do need to make an appointment. Phone 07 3488 2739 or email

If you are nervous about making a commitment I recommend visiting the Red Bay Microbrewery at Unit 7, 77 Shore Street West, Cleveland ( opposite Big Mushroom Fruit Barn) on a Friday or Saturday evening which is when you meet other enthusiasts and enjoy a beer– but they do close early !

Costs vary and it would be wise to research their website though they do say that brewing with them will "save you a bundle" - – and to chat to the brewers about your needs. Did you know they even have kegs available for functions?

Even better, Gift Vouchers are available. Told you I had this sorted!
