The perfect Queensland brew – a non-alcoholic craft beer infused with bush tucker.
Sobah Beverages are a proud Queensland Indigenous scaleup, and are the only Australian company specialising in locally brewed, non-alcoholic craft beer infused with bush tucker ingredients.
Based on the Gold Coast, Sobah Beverages were the first scaleup to receive an Advance Queensland Deadly Deals grant, putting them on track to grow their business. They used the grant to buy a pasteuriser to expand production, and increase their product’s shelf-life to safely distribute to national and international markets.
By early 2020, Sobah Beverages had made considerable inroads and proven the shelf-life stability of their product and despite the impact of COVID-19 on their business, they have continued operations, refocusing their business and concentrating on increasing online brand awareness and retail and e-commerce sales – which have significantly increased.
Looking beyond COVID-19, Sobah Beverages plan to their products to international markets, creating more jobs and regional opportunities. Once fully operational, Sobah Beverages will look at offering contract pasteurisation services to other small beverage producers. This will not only grow their revenue but also assist the growth of other small beverage businesses in the region.
You can support Sobah Beverages by purchasing their products from one of their stockists.
