The makers of Bundaberg’s most iconic craft brewed drink – Bundaberg Brewed Drinks – have completed their new super brewery in Bundaberg. Bundaberg Brewed Drinks received a $19 million grant from the Federal Government’s Regional Growth Fund for the super brewery which is now open and in full operation. The new facility allows for increased production of the brand’s iconic ginger beer and other soft drinks, further ensuring the company’s growth for many years to come.
The $152.4 million facility took two years to construct and includes an innovation centre, large storage and cold room facilities, a laboratory as well as manufacturing and processing equipment.
The project supported more than 850 jobs during construction and has created more than 600 ongoing jobs in the region, ensuring production stays in Bundaberg.
