About Us

Shack Bay Brewing is an emerging craft brewery and the idea of two old high school friends Matt and Luke. It’s located in Inverloch on the Bass/Bunurong Coast of Gippsland in Victoria, Australia.

“Luke and I met in Canberra when we were young, and despite living and working on opposite sides of the country for several years now – Luke in the west and me here in Inverloch – we’ve remained close. Throughout this time, we’ve both wanted to break free from our corporate jobs and create something unique and of our own making.

Inverloch, or affectionately known as ‘Invy’ to those who visit regularly or call it home, is a small, picturesque town. It’s where I’ve lived with my family for several years now, and where we’ve chosen to setup the brewery – what could be more unique and removed from working in an office than a brewery by the beach! We’ve called it Shack Bay as a nod to the area’s geography and unique history – both recent and not so recent.

So, cheers to following dreams, doing something new, and a mutual love of craft beer. We hope the local community and our region’s countless visitors will embrace our brewery so that it’ll not only be a place to enjoy a great beer, but also a hub the community can be proud of”.
