Visiting the Brewery

Autumn / Winter opening hours

The Taproom at the brewery (3 Dalman Street, Forster) is open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday 11am – 6pm during Winter.

Visitors can enjoy a range of regularly, rotating beers on a tasting paddle (89mL or 200mL glasses), schooners and pints.  Cider, gluten free beer and a range of soft drinks are also available in the taproom.  Cans and cartons can also be purchased from the Taproom and we also sell (and fill) ‘growlers’ and ‘squealers’ of beer for takeaway.

Through our onsite foodtruck we offer a range of pizzas and from time to time we have guest chefs and pop-ups. Small snack foods (artisan beef jerky, crisps and cheese & biscuits) are also available.

And YES we are children and dog friendly !!

About The Coastal Brewing Company

The Coastal Brewing Company is an award winning family-owned microbrewery based in the coastal town of Forster Tuncurry, NSW.

Being based in Forster-Tuncurry and part of the wonderful Barrington Coast, community is playing a big role in the brewery’s strategy and operations. For The Coastal Brewing Company, it’s all about enjoying L.I.F.E – that’s local, independent, fresh, everytime.  Building on its enjoying L.I.F.E focus, all of the Coastal Brewing Company beer names link to the natural beauty of the Barrington Coast area in NSW.

Using all natural ingredients on a 1,200 litre brewhouse, the brewery produces fresh, craft beer for sale in kegs to restaurants, bars, clubs and pubs. Beer is also canned onsite and sold through bottlestores, restaurants and bars.
