It all started out just over a year ago now in mid December 2017 when a humble little brewery, Malt Brewing Co, burst open its doors with the ambition of putting Bulimba Queensland back on the map for the best independent craft beer! After a quick pivot and rebrand within the first 3 months, Revel went on to being voted Queensland Best New Brewery at the 2018 Brisbane Beeries Awards and securing multiple awards for it’s deliciously fresh and independently brewed craft beers @ The Indies Awards in Melbourne!
After picking ourselves up off the floor from the first year of operations, 2019 started out brewing hard with long hours and tedious planning. These efforts went to ensure we had the best shot at the host of upcoming competitions to help reinforce that our little riverside home of Bulimba can stand strong in Australian craft beer!
And here we are with our journey continuing at the Royal Queensland Food & Wine Show beer awards this week in Brisbane Queensland! Revel was so very proud to enter 10 of our finest and we took away 7 awards out of a field of 48 amazing exhibitors, and 344 different beers, from some of the best craft breweries in Australia!
