Your Mates heading to 2019 Beeries Awards and need your help!

Your Mates have been nominated for Best New Brewery in the 2019 Beeries and are calling on our legendary mates to help us with a vote.


The Beeries are a celebration of the Queensland craft beer industry. They’re kind of like a boozy Aussie version of the Golden Globes, but for craft beer. We’re incredibly grateful and bloody excited to be in the running for the Best New Brewery 2019 alongside some awesome new Queensland breweries.

It’s been a huge year for us and this would be another amazing accolade to add to our successes. We’re also the only Sunshine Coast brewery in the mix so we feel that it’s our obligation to give it our best crack for our fellow Sunny Coast breweries.

The Beeries are held in Brisbane on the 19th of September and tickets can be purchased from this link. We’ve been to the last few and can vouch that it’s a top night. Cheers in advance mates, now let’s take home the bacon!


Finding parmy perfection with Your Mates Brew House Head Chef

A Q&A with our Head Chef, Justin, on why our $20 Thursday night parmy deal is the best on the Sunshine Coast and how parmy perfection was achieved.

The chicken parmigiana. A pub grub feed as classic as your old boy’s Holden Kingswood. Like a Kingswood, it’s just as rare to find a good one. However, in a world of mediocre parmy’s, a beacon of light shines from Your Mates Brew House.

The light burns brightest on Thursday nights, it’s warmth attracting cautiously optimistic parmy lovers who’ve heard of a new parmy and beer deal that only costs a red back. They read the parmy menu over and over, struggling to choose from the four styles, each one sounding better with every read.

Finally they order and almost forget that it comes with a beer, a pleasant affirmation that this really is a cracking deal. Soon after, the parmy’s come out topped to the sky with a beautiful mixture of ingredients. They can’t believe the size of them, “what do they feed these chickens?” one bloke asks. They all dig in, savouring the combinations of flavours, each bite better than the next. They finish in minutes and wash it down with their beers.

They don’t say a word and enjoy the moment, Crowded House plays in the background, laughter and happiness bounces around the brewery. It’s pure bliss they say, it’s parmy perfection.

How did we reach parmy perfection, you ask? It was Justo, spending hours in the lab, in the kitchen, immersed in other cultures, researching, testing and fine tuning the ultimate parmy’s.

We recently tapped into Justo’s mind and got an inside scoop on the thought that went into these parmy’s. It went like this.

So Justo, let’s start with the golden question. What is the key to a perfect parmy? 

Having a quality schnitty is the perfect “base” to an epic parmy……get it? Base??

What was the thought process behind the new parmy’s and what styles are available?

We spent a lot of time researching and developing a range of parmys that combine the different culinary styles of the world, and then thought beer. What would go well with our core range of beers. With some rowdy ideas in the bank, we have finalised the following:

Classic – traditional parmy with smoked bacon

Americana – char grilled jalapeño salsa with pulled pork, cheese topped with beer Battered onion rings and smokey bbq sauce

Mexicano – think parmy and nachos…..Enuff said

Spanish – char grilled jalapeño salsa, chorizo, corn and capsicum salsa

These parmy’s are obviously a taste of the new Brew House menu which we’re super excited about. When will this be dropping to the public and what can punters expect?

The new menu will be dropping in the next week or so. Again loads of collaborations with local producers and we will be adding to it as we get into the warmer months. Having great beer to accompany the menu was a great start, but incorporating it was next level! Looking forward to sharing it with the supporters of Your Mates Brewing Co.!!

Our $20 Parmy and Beer nights kick off every Thursday at 5:30pm.

Bookings are highly recommended and can be made by contacting [email protected] 

Cheers to good beers! (and good parmy’s)


Whale One: Introducing the Sunshine Coast’s Newest Party on Water

By Lachie Finch

Renowned as the premiere whale watching operator in South East Queensland, Sunreef’s Whale One is expanding its operation, adding party boat tour, ‘Oh Buoy It’s Saturday’ to its experiences.

Departing fortnightly from Mooloolaba on Saturday evenings, the party boat cruises through the Mooloolah River while guests indulge in onboard street food, two licensed bars (with Larry on tap) and an onboard DJ.

Sunreef’s founder, Dan Hart, said the Whale One has undergone “huge refurbishment” to transform it into a “venue” on water.

“We more than doubled the size of the bar downstairs and added a bar upstairs,” he said.

“We opened up the boat to allow more room to move and put in a state of the art sound system.”

Mr Hart said these new additions to Whale One will allow for an event “unlike the Sunshine Coast has ever seen”.

According to Mr Hart, the feedback received from last weekend’s launch party was “overwhelming”.

“A real party atmosphere was created and people didn’t want to get off,” he said.

The next cruise is happening next weekend on the 20th of July. Mr Hart said attendees can expect fantastic food and service, “mind blowing” sound and a venue and party “they will never forget”.

The cruise is set to depart the Mooloolaba Wharf at 6:30pm, giving guests plenty of time to enjoy a drink at the Wharf’s many watering holes pre and post party.
