Beating the crunch with Gluten Free Pizza and Beer
Real life experiences with friends and family are being prioritised, despite cost-of-living pressures increasing – and that doesn't exclude gluten free beer with gluten free pizza.
According to CommBank iQ (a joint venture between Commonwealth Bank of Australia and data science and artificial intelligence company Quantium), eating out and food delivery spend has increased by 8.5 per cent.
The CommBank iQ Cost of Living Insights Report shows that while cost-of-living pressures are evident in spending changes in several categories of essential and discretionary spending, dining out, travel/accommodation and entertainment have all increased.
Australia's only gluten free brewery with a dedicated taproom
Our taproom in Dromana on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula pours 11 different gluten free beers with local wines and ciders, as well as soft drinks. From vegan gluten free pizzas on Napoli, basil pesto and garlic oil bases to pear and prosciutto on a chilli jam base, and small-batch seasonal pilot brews, as well as all the TWØBAYS favourites.
The newest addition to the Winter menu is gluten free beer-infused arancini, locally-made by Arancini4All – making for a delicious snack or side dish.
The fire is crackling in winter and alfresco dining is in full swing in summer. It's both dog and child-friendly – and we're rated 1st of 8 for quick bites in Dromana with a five-star rating on Tripadvisor, making TWØBAYS the number 1 rated taproom in the region.
"We're all feeling the pinch," says CEO and Founder Richard Jeffares.
"While everyone loves a meal out at a winery or a restaurant, it's difficult for friends, couples and families to afford such luxuries at the moment."
"But the last few years have taught us the importance of catching up with people and enjoying experiences. We love the idea that people can come to our taproom and enjoy a beer or two with a pizza – whether to savour alone or share – without breaking the bank."
"The reason I started this brewery was so that people didn't have to miss out on experiences with friends, partners and families. Back in 2018, I didn't quite appreciate how important that would become!"
"The Taproom was always part of the dream; so that people could enjoy the full experience of tasting different beers – and that includes pizza!"
What is everyone saying out the gluten free beer experience?
"12 beers on tap to try. Loved the generous tasting paddles. Good lunch option with hearty pizzas. Also in good location to add the gin and rum distilleries around the corner to your itinerary. Arvo sorted!" Emily
"By far the best gluten free beer out there! Since being diagnosed as Coeliac, I thought I could never try nice craft beer again until trying TWØBAYS. The IPA is my favourite. Great gluten free pizzas also, would highly recommend the mushroom!" Stewart
"Love LOVE this place! Would be dangerous if I lived close by 😅"
"Can't tell that anything is gluten free, which is amazing being a new gluten intolerant person I know what the real stuff tastes like so this was so lovely for a change for all the beers and pizza to taste so amazing! Staff were lovely, friendly and helpful too!"
"Nice vibe and cool inside on a hot day. Came on a weekend and very busy so definitely recommend booking." Lisa
