“Uncomplicated. That’s life in Margaret River, and that’s the philosophy behind CBCo.
CBCo tapped its first keg in 2004, on the wild coastline of the South West, and it is this special corner of the world that is the inspiration for their handcrafted beers and cider.
Still brewing in Margaret River today, their home in the South West is a place to share a special piece of their beer story. A place to enjoy whoever you are and wherever you’re from - whether you’re after a dry hopped limited release or your favourite refreshing Pale Ale, a family lunch or an overdue catch up with friends, live music on a sunny afternoon or a hit of Golf on the driving range.
CBCo Margaret River. Uncomplicated and unpretentious, just like their beers.”
