About us

The Coastal Brewing Company is a family-owned microbrewery in Forster, NSW.

Inspired by the natural beauty of the Manning Valley and the Great Lakes, The Coastal Brewing Company brews a range of ales and lagers using all natural ingredients on a 1,200 litre brewhouse, bringing locally produced fresh craft beer to both residents and visitors to the region.

After many years’ home brewing and tasting craft beers, and having completed the Federation University Graduate Certificate in Brewing, co-founder David Black made the move from the world of Big 4 firm chartered accounting to become the head brewer.
