It seems like just yesterday that Mountain Culture opened their 60 hL brewpub in the Blue Mountains, where they would sit in a containership with half a plane on top of it writing these descriptions. Now, two years on, they are sitting in somewhat of a real office with a brewery 15 times the size working away endlessly on the other side of the office wall. But none of that would be possible without your support, so here’s to Year 2 with you! Let’s celebrate with some of the finest birthday cake and the classiest bottle of bubbly their accountant will let them buy! Because that’s how adults usually celebrate a 2nd birthday right?
Built-in 1912 in the beautiful Blue Mountains town of Katoomba, Mountain Culture’s building housed ‘The Echo’, the local paper for many a year. Later it allegedly passed time as a “dancing saloon and home for lost or belated drunks”, until finally ending up as a Civic Video store. In 2017 DJ and Harriet McCready embarked on transforming the dilapidated building into the first brewpub in the Blue Mountains. After 18 long months of careful renovation, they opened the doors with the goal of welcoming people from near and far to come in and have a beer. But not just any beer. Rather, they hold themselves accountable to a standard that means constantly pushing the limit and pushing themselves to figure out how they can brew better beer, every batch. Because let’s face it, life is short. They have no time for beers that don’t blow their hair back, and nor should you.
