Sapphire Cellars serving up Craft Beers on the South Coast.

Sapphire Cellars in Merimbula has been around for a while in one shape or form, but in 2020 it was purchased and rebranded by the new owner Andrew Orman. Previously working in the industry as a Liquor Wholesale Representative, Andrew knew the shop and the local area and was ready to make a move in to retail.
The business was closing down and Andrew took a risk, he purchased the business within days of the doors closing. With an understanding of the industry trends Andrew knew the locals were missing out on the world of craft beer, the response from locals was very positive towards the new craft beer range.

When Andrew meet Nigel Ayling from We Love Craft Beer at the Merimbula Craft Beer Festival they started talking about the growing demand for Craft beer and the rest was history. Andrew started by adding some regional brands like Jindabyne Brewing, Sailors Grave and Tumut River brewing. He then added South Coast breweries like Longstocking, Jervis Bay Brewing, Dangerous Ales & Bulli Brewing. Of course they covered the Canberra region with a full range of beers from including Bentspoke & Capital.

Fast forward to today and they now stock over 45 brands and 200 craft beers. They include the popular brand names like Mountain Culture, Dainton, Hope, Akasha and Hawkers to name a few.  They cover all the styles including Pale Ale, Pacific Ale, Amber Ale, Golden Ale, Pilsner, IPA,  NEIPA, XPA, Sours, Stout, Hazy and Red Ales.

So whatever your taste in craft beer they are sure to have you covered. Next time you are heading through Merimbula, make sure you stop and visit Andrew and the team at Sapphire Cellars. For more information visit their website.
