Bells Beach Brewing is built on belief and capability.

Founders Jono and Adam were inspired by the landscape of Bells Beach and the Surfcoast but uninspired by the beer they found in the location back in the day.

In their day jobs, the boys engineered some of the worlds finest cars, in locations such as the UK, US and Bavaria - locations that also provided a wealth of beer drinking experience. Bells Beach Brewing was founded on the belief that they could combine the engineering approach from billion dollar car development programs with their well honed taste buds to produce quality beer that could rival any in the world.

After 3 years of up-skilling and experimentation they brought their first beer, Southside Saison, to market in 2015 which subsequently won a Silver at the craft beer awards – not a bad first effort!

Buoyed by great feedback and growing sales Jono and Adam continued to grow the core range, gypsy brewing around the Geelong and Surfcoast, until in 2017 they decided to put down roots of their own in the home of surfing. After approaching renowned sports photographer Jeff Crow for some surfing photos, they ended up gaining the third member of the Bells Beach Brewing crew who joined them on the journey of building a brewery and tap room in Torquay.

After a long search, the perfect location was found in the heart of the surf industry hub and then the hard work really started. Over 6 months of long days and late nights ensued, before Bells Beach Brewery and tap room were officially opened in December 2018.

Now with the addition of the tap room in Geelong, as well as an extended range of core beers and limited releases, the Bells Beach Brewing story continues...
