Hemingway’s Brewery Cairns is being built at Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal’s heritage-listed site

Located at Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal’s heritage-listed site, the new venue will incorporate a state-of-the-art brewery with 10 times the capacity of Hemingway’s original venture at Port Douglas.

Hemingway’s Brewery co-owners Tony Fyfe and Craig Parsell.

The multimillion dollar development at Cairns Wharf’s restored Shed 2 spans 1400sqm and will comprise a gastro brewpub and extensive events space in addition to the brewery, which will house seven, 7000 litre fermentation tanks.

Innisfail contractor Mike O’Farrell is leading the build of the contemporary venue, to be operated under a 10-year lease agreement between Ports North and Hemingway’s Brewery founders Tony Fyfe and Craig Parsell.

Alongside the commercial grade brewery, which will also offer informative tours, Hemingway’s Cairns will include a 19 metre bar and full-service kitchen for casual and fine dining as well as functions of all sizes.

Hemingway’s Brewery Cairns takes shape.

The venue’s restaurant will serve quality gastro pub-style food made from locally sourced ingredients, while a providore will showcase Far North Queensland craft produce. There is also a dedicated event space.

“Like Hemingway’s Brewery in Port Douglas, we are creating a special place that will be embraced by both locals and visitors who appreciate the character and authenticity of a brewery with its roots firmly planted in Far North Queensland,” said Fyfe.

“When completed, our state-of-the-art brewery in Cairns will be like nothing ever seen before in the region, boasting an incredible capacity to brew a wide selection of high quality, fresh craft beers, produced in small batches for optimum purity and brewed by locals, for the locals.”

The venue is expected to open mid-2018.
