Mountain Culture Beer Co, Katoomba

KATOOMBA | Mountain Culture Beer Co is one of Australia’s most highly regarded breweries, and there’s not better place to try what they have to offer than their Katoomba brewpub.

Located in an old heritage listed building that was previously home to a Civic Video store, husband-and-wife duo DJ and Harriet McCready opened Mountain Culture in 2020. DJ, who hails from North Carolina in the US, already had a reputation as a top brewer from his time at Modus Operandi Brewing, and Oskar Blues in Colorado.

The venue is a casual, accessible place, one that’s popular with visitors, locals, beer nerds, families with children, and everything in between. You don’t have to know a thing about craft beer to enjoy the brewpub, but if craft beer is your thing, you’ll be very impressed.

DJ takes his beer seriously, with detailed attention given to every detail of the brewing process. A reverse osmosis filter allows the exact right kind of water profile to built up from its base, while a top of the line pH monitoring system ensures that the water remains exactly the way that’s intended. Add to this, some of the best yeast strains and grains from around the world, and you’ve got all that you need for quality brews.

There’s classic styles in the core range, like the award-winning Status Quo pale ale, Lager, and Double Red Ale. If you’re after something limited or experimental, then weekly releases are what you’re after. There’s always a decent selection on tap, and heaps more in the fridges. Expect things like Double IPAs, sours brewed with experimental yeasts, and collaborations with some of the world’s best breweries.

Tasting paddles are available if you want to try a few things, and there’s also a small selection of wine, and non-alcoholic options if you’re not in the mood for beer.

To eat, there’s a selection of burgers, with sides like chips, tater tots, and fried pickles. Gluten free and vegan options are available.
