Bar-BQ

Beer and a BBQ is a match made for the tropics.

The crew from One Mile Brewery is hosting a family-friendly ‘Bar-BQ’ at their Winnellie site as a thank you to the community for their support over the last four years. 

Local lads Bardy Bayram and Stuart Brown first set up shop in a shed in Stuart Park before quickly outgrowing the space as the thirst for locally brewed beer increased.

“We still have other full time jobs and this is sort of a hobby that got out of control,” Bayram laughs.

The pair, now set up in Winnellie, is inviting everyone to a day of good food, good beer and good tunes.

“We opened the brewery about a year ago and opened it to the public in November,” Bayram says.

“The Bar-BQ is just to let people know we’ve moved into Winnellie and to put on a bit of a soiree for ourselves.”

There will be a variety of food vans selling all sorts of different types of BBQ’d goodness. There will also be tunes from local musos, complete with an open mic spot, a jumping castle for the kids, and, of course, beer and cider from the One Mile Brewery catalogue.

“We’ve got Smokey J’s coming down and all sorts of different styles of BBQ including German style sausages,” Bayram says. 

“It’s a bit of a festival to get everyone together and we thought beer and BBQ is a perfect mix.”

The company, celebrating their fourth birthday in August, has grown with demand for different types of beer over the years.

“The market has really evolved over the last four years and we’ve started to make some IPAs, which weren’t really on the radar back when we started,” Bayram says.

“We make beers for the tropics – they’re easy drinking and brimming with flavour.”
