PLANS are brewing for a new craft beer factory at the northern end of the Sunshine Coast.
Noosa Shire Council is considering an application for a brewery to be built on Rene St, Noosaville.
It will house the equipment needed to mill, brew, ferment, filter, pack and store alcoholic products.
"The modern brewery is a high-tech, continuous process carried out under strict controlled environments," the application read.
Customers will be catered for with beverage tasting in bar and kitchen areas at the front of the brewery.
It will most likely be open to the public on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays but the directors said that could change depending on product releases, public demand and seasonality.
"This is primarily to introduce the brand and range to the public and in addition to gain access to a small audience for trialling or taste-testing 'one-off' preproduction beers to assist with research and development of new products."
There are plans to employ two directors and eight other staff to co-ordinate the brewery running 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The application continued: "The proposed development has the potential to deliver economic benefits to the community, which is consistent with the intention of the Shire Business Centre to function as an employment and business generator."
