YOU KNOW WHAT MAKES A GOOD BEER?
We’ve built a brewery to suit Australia’s rugged exteriors and soft-hearted interiors. Our range of brews are full bodied,bold, yet also balanced. We’re not so crafty that the flavours will alarm you and we’re not so mainstream that we’re found everywhere, on every tap, all the time. Instead, we’re the Goldilocks of beer – because we’re just right.
For a lazy afternoon session or a night reminiscing about the good old days with mates, Fortitude has a beer suited to your taste buds and for whatever lies ahead. You can tackle anything with Fortitude.
Genuine and honorable in our principles, intentions and actions.
We adhere to moral and ethical principles.
We are dependable in achievement, accuracy and honesty.
Our fortitude is strong, effective and full of courage.
We’re a local and independent Australian brewing company located on Tamborine Mountain in Queensland’s Gold Coast Hinterland. It’s an idyllic spot, a few degrees cooler than the rest of the area, which is welcome respite during the balmy summer months. It also happens to be a place that allows us to brew fresh, clean beers – with character.
The two founders of Fortitude became mates at school. But their future as beer brewers was sealed when they had their first beer together (only after it was legal to do so, of course) and they realised that the amber nectar should become their life’s work.
As life would have it though, the two went on to have corporate careers but they never lost sight of their goal – to share good beer with good people. They eventually returned to their heartland – to build a brewery full time, after years of research to find the right complement of flavours.
Fortitude delivers a range of beers that are well-balanced, bringing together top quality ingredients and an integrity to the brewing process that delivers bold and strong flavours, across the range, that linger refreshingly on the
palate. It’s a little bit of lady luck, a lot of passion, unyielding perseverance and a dash of patience that all go into making Fortitude.
When someone has fortitude it means that they have emotional power or reserves and the ability to with stand adversity. People who have fortitude are described in an admiring way for their courage. It also means they’ve found a great tasting beer.
