Common People Brewing Co
Opening its doors at the start of 2022, Common People Brewing Co is a new craft brewery for the people of Bangalow and beyond.
Owned and created by born-and-raised locals and their partners, the team are family and friends - common people. They’ve converted an empty warehouse in the industrial estate to an inviting tasting room, set amongst a working production brewery.
Common People offers plenty of natural light and plants, with comfy seating options and a purpose built outdoor deck. It’s warm in winter with a lovely fireplace, cool and breezy in summer and is accessible, family and pooch friendly.
Three core range beers are always on offer, including the Protesters IPA, Villager’s Pale Ale and Back Beach White Ale. Seasonal "special batch” brews rotate regularly so there’s always something new to try. Handpicked wines and sparkling from Australian wineries are also on the menu, along with soft drinks and juices.
Common People recently welcomed The Brewer’s Kitchen who serve up a delicious range of treats for your tastebuds like woodfired pizzas, salads, sharing plates, kids meals and desserts, offering something for everyone and every dietary requirement.
