Ballistic To Close Airlie Beach Venue; Seeking New Home In Region

The owners of Ballistic Beer Co have announced they are to close their existing venue in Airlie Beach and have embarked on a search for a new home for the brand in the region.

The Catchment Brewing Group acquired Ballistic Beer Co following a period of voluntary administration in early 2023. The deal saw them inherit a number of sites, including one in Bargara and one in Airlie Beach.

However, they have decided to explore other options for Ballistic in the popular Whitsunday Region.
