Due to the ongoing pandemic, we are restricting online sales to our local region only (postcodes 4870, 4878 and 4879). We want to encourage social distancing and this service is part of that, while still enabling people to enjoy good beer! We are following events very closely, and may need to limit this area further or stop altogether based on government advice or our own analysis of the situation. People are more important than business and beer.

NO OUT OF AREA ORDERS PLEASE! We have added a punitive delivery charge to remind you of this at checkout!

This is a rapidly changing situation, and we apologize if we can’t fulfill your order. In this case will will endeavour to issue refunds as soon as practicable.

We can still deliver outside of the Fastway network, (using for eg Australia Post) but unfortunately there will be an increase in cost for this.

Shipping is charged on a weight basis. Final freight costs are calculated during the online checkout process. Please see the rates when you view your ‘Basket’ prior to checkout. If you get a message saying that there are no shipping rates for your location, it could be that you are outside of the Fastway delivery network.

Shipping is broken down as the following examples based on the cheapest option for you:

  • T-shirt/shirts – $7
  • Glasses (up to 4) – $7
  • 1x 6 pack – $7
  •  2-3x 6 packs – $11 (total – will be placed inside a carton-sized box)
  • Carton (24x330ml bottles) –  $11 per carton

Shipping Information


Please note, we do not currently ship beer outside of Australia, however we will send clothing and glasses/growlers to international customers (eventually!). Please contact us first for shipping rates.

If the order is being sent to a non-residential address, please ensure the business/company name is included.

All parcels can be tracked and by default we request they be signed for, i.e. not just left at the premises unattended. However, we do offer customers the option to state specific delivery instructions, e.g. leave behind side gate etc. If you chose to indicate delivery instructions to leave the parcel unattended on premises we accept no responsibility if parcels go missing once they have been delivered. By providing instructions to leave the parcel without signature customers accept the risks associated with this.

If the premises is unattended during a delivery which requires a signature a notice will be placed in your post box, please follow the instructions on this notice to arrange collection/re-delivery.

Deliveries are made during business hours Monday to Friday, however we are unable to give a guaranteed time of delivery. No deliveries are made on public holidays or weekends.

Should a re-delivery be required as a result of incorrect delivery address provided, parcel refusal by the recipient or the parcel not having been picked from the Fastway depot a re-delivery fee will be charged as well as a $10 processing and transaction fee.

Orders are dispatched once processed. We are unable to hold orders for delivery on a specific day.

If you get a message saying ‘No Shipping Methods Are Available’ during the ordering process, please try manually inputting your post code. If this still doesn’t work, please email us at shop@barrierreefbrewing.com.au.
