Terella Brewing is the new sustainable farm-style brewery you need to know about. Tucked away in a rural corner of North Arm, the brewery is integrated with a Vertical Farm system, growing green produce within indoor growing booths under UV lights. Fresh water is created as a by-product of this process, which Terella Brewing then uses as a water supply to produce its beer. When brewing the beer, the fermentation process creates Co2, which is captured and re-injected back into the vertical farm to help grow the green produce. It is a fully enclosed sustainable cycle. Incredible, huh? The seasonal beers on tap aren’t bad either!
Making additional use of their space, Teralla has installed a petting farm with a mixture of farm animals ranging from goats, pigs, chickens, sheep, ducks, and even miniature horses. Other breweries you should add to your Sunshine Coast brewery adventure include:
