The Burleigh Brewing Company is a brewery and taphouse located in Burleigh Heads, Queensland, Australia.


Peta and Brennan Fielding started Burleigh Brewing in 2006. In 2015, they outgrew the original location and moved down the road to an expanded brewery and new tap house.

On the back of a successful brewing endeavour in Hawaii, and bothered by the lack of balance, character or soul in Queensland’s beer landscape, in 2006 Peta and Brennan started brewing. Burleigh Brewing was born on 1 July 2006 and set about pioneering the craft beer movement on the Gold Coast.
