14 Traders Way, Currumbin Six Aussies and a Yank walk into a bar and never come out ... that’s how Balter tells its story. Balter is the venture of pro surfing buddies Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson, Josh Kerr and Bede Burbidge along with master brewer Scotty Hargrave. The brew house was opened two years ago and has already won three industry awards, including Best Medium Australian Brewery at last year’s Australian International Beer Awards. The range includes four specialty beers: a pale ale, draught, pilsner and brown ale. Balter has a rustic, relaxed vibe and its tap house is open afternoons and evenings Friday to Sunday.
