Bright Brewery has been awarded Victoria’s highest honour for Tourism Wineries, Distilleries & Breweries at the 2017 Victorian Tourism Awards.

It’s the first time in more than a decade that a brewery has won the top award in the category at the Victorian Tourism Awards.

Bright Brewery’s owner and founder, Scott Brandon shared his elation following the win.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to win Gold in this very competitive category,” said Mr Brandon.

“Bright Brewery was founded for three reasons; to make the best beer in the region, to create that beer using sustainable practices and to promote Bright and the surrounding areas as a tourist destination hub. These principles drive everything we do and this award recognises the effort we’ve put into living and breathing our core values to be authentic, sustainable and active in all our business decisions and practices.”

“We’re proud to be recognised alongside such excellent businesses, including our independent craft brewing friends at Mornington Peninsula Brewery (Bronze Award), fellow brewers at Little Creatures Geelong (Finalist), and the crews from Crittenden Estate Wine Centre (Silver Award) and Sedona Estate (Finalist).”

“The Tourism Awards process is a fantastic experience for grounding our business, to ensure we are doing the right thing for the tourism industry and that we have a robust and sustainable business.”

“We look forward to continuing our efforts to build on and improve Bright Brewery’s tourism offerings and industry partnerships, and helping our region’s local tourism thrive in Bright and Victoria’s high country.”

The Victorian Tourism Awards, run by the Victorian Tourism Industry Council (VTIC), represent an industry framework for peer recognition of business development excellence and innovation.

Bright Brewery Marketing Manager, James Davidson said that the Victorian Tourism Awards provide a benchmark for tourism excellence through an examination of business practice.

“The awards process addresses the nuts and bolts of operating and managing a robust tourism business,” said Mr Davidson.

“It examines your business planning, marketing, customer service and contributions to sustainability and your community.”

“Winning Gold is fantastic validation for our management of Bright Brewery, from our strategic planning through to delivering on staff training, as well as the partnerships we have formed to support both the local community and wider tourism industry.”

“Not only are all these aspects important us at Bright Brewery, this Gold award shows that we’re operating the right way to be a successful and sustainable business and that we are having a positive impact on our region’s economy.”

“It’s a credit to our whole team across the brewery, bar, kitchen and office. With more than 40 people employed at Bright Brewery, this was truly a team effort.”

Toast 2 Love – Fri 3 November

Aussies can Toast 2 Love and support marriage equality with special love brew

*** ORDER A CASE OF Love² HERE ***

Australians are being asked to raise a glass with a Toast 2 Love and share it on social media on Friday 3 November as the same sex marriage postal survey reaches its last few days, with all funds from the sale of Love² beer by The Good Beer Co. being pledged to the Australian Marriage Equality campaign.

Fifteen pubs, bars and venues in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra and Adelaide are supporting #Toast2Love by putting the special Love² brew by The Good Beer Co. and Bright Brewery on tap, and over 100 businesses including Airbnb, Tripadvisor, Medbank, Qantas, and Atlassian are getting involved by serving the Love² beer in bottles at special “Toast 2 Love” Friday drinks events across the country.

A case of The Good Beer Co Love2 beerThe New World style Pale Ale beer has proved so popular since its launch earlier this month that The Good Beer Co. and Bright Brewery are busy brewing a new batch to keep up with orders. But the good news is beer lovers can order a carton of Love² online here and for a celebration at home with mates.

The Good Beer Co. is a social enterprise – a company on a mission to do good – and the Love² beer is its second cause related brew, with the first being Great Barrier Beer in support of the Australian Marine Conservation Society and their work to protect Australia’s national icon, the Great Barrier Reef.

The Good Beer Co. Founder, James Grugeon, said he wanted to “Toast 2 Love” to thank everyone who had already voted YES, urge those who hadn’t returned their survey yet to do it quickly before the deadline on 7 November and remind everyone who has supported marriage equality that the fight isn’t over until the law is passed.

“This is a celebration of love for all those YES voters out there. When you Toast 2 Love on Friday the 3rd November we want you to share it on your social media so everyone can see that you support equality for all,” Mr Grugeon said.

“The Good Beer Co. will continue to support the Australian Marriage Equality campaign after 15 November because that isn’t the end, we will continue to work until same sex marriage marriage is passed into law. And ongoing, we’ll continue to support the cause of equality for everyone.

“I hope to be toasting LGBTIQ friends at their own marriages in Australia before long.”

Janine Middleton from the Equality Campaign said, “Toast to Love will give campaigners and YES voters a chance to pause and reflect before the postal survey result is announced on 15 November.

“We are excited by how popular Love² beer has proved to be and hope it is a good omen for YES. It is a great beer and we hope Australians will enjoy toasting love on 3 November – and well beyond that day.”

Scott Brandon, owner of Bright Brewery, the brewers of Love² beer, said he was delighted about the positive reaction to this special brew.

“This is a hand crafted, small batch brewed beer from an independent craft brewer and social enterprise start up. Beer is a great equaliser in our society that helps bring people together and enjoy each other’s company. We’re proud to be making a beer that supports equality for all Australians and hope that everyone will seek out and try this New World-style session Pale Ale with all Aussie ingredients that’s easy to love, no matter what your preference.”

Anyone supporting marriage equality can also share The Good Beer Co’s #Toast2Love animation…

NOTE: Love² orders – cases of Love² beer (24 x 330ml bottles) are now available to ORDER HERE. To receive a case for #Toast2Love events this Friday, you must order before 8am, Wednesday 31st October 2017. Please be aware that kegs for pubs and bars are now sold out.
