Richard Jeffares loved craft beer until he was diagnosed with coeliac disease in 2015.
On a strict gluten free diet, he couldn’t find the quality and variety of craft beer he’d fallen in love with in Australia. He feared he’d never do a tasting paddle with mates again.
On a road trip through America a year ago, Richard discovered brewers making gluten free beer that was just as good – if not better – than the beers he remembered. Richard returned home inspired and launched TWØBAYS Brewing Co in 2017.
Our passion is creating modern beer using ancient grains.
So everybody can explore a new world of flavour and enjoy a beer with friends – safe in the knowledge it’s always gluten free.
Jeffares started researching and like most craft brewers, looked to the USA. There, Jeffares found a fully-developed gluten-free space in the craft beer scene. In one venue, he describes being able to try up to 18 or 19 taps of gluten-free lights, darks, sours and goses.
From Portland over to Montreal “the beer quality was brilliant,” Jeffares says.
“So, I came back and spent the last year and a bit making this project happen.”
TWØBAYS Brewing Co has secured exclusive importation rights to 15 different specialty malt varieties. Made from millet, buckwheat and rice, Jeffares mostly sells to homebrewers with hopes to expand once his stock levels rise.
After the our Pale entered the market, we released our IPA at the start of 2019.
Our IPA is bursting with flavour and bite, giving off pine and fruity aromatics. It's also endorsed by Coeliac Australia!
