Terella means “Little Earth” and was born from a vision of a dream brewery inspired by science, a love of beer and connection to the local land. So, Terella Brewing, in North Arm, offers you a taste of rural life between the hinterland and farms of the Sunshine Coast, surrounded by crops and free roaming cattle. Their concept is based on a sustainable cycle – “producing what we need and using what we produce”.
Get the family together and explore Terella’s very own farmyard. All their animals are rescues, surrenders or orphans and many have been hand raised from babies. They all have names and are very tame, living in a fully enclosed setting where they can be petted. Tickets are $6 and entry is Saturday and Sunday: 9 – 11.30am.
Relax in the Brewery Taproom, where you can taste Mango XPA, Session Ale, Euro Lager, Pale Ale, Hazy IPA and Mad Dog Ginger Beer. Every Saturday and Sunday from 1-3pm, there’s live music in the Brewery. Enjoy a coffee and cake or sample some of our great beers brewed fresh onsite each week. There’s cheese boxes to share, kids snack boxes and bar snacks and on Friday to Sunday the local food trucks will serve you up some delicious food, which changes from week to week.
Get here in less than a 30-minute drive from Noosa.
