Mick Fanning’s brewery shut down by Covid



Balter Brewery at Currumbin has closed its doors until next Tuesday after a Covid-positive person visited the tap room between 2.30pm and 6.30pm last Monday.“The person did not have symptoms when visiting Balter but got some on the 28th (Tuesday) and received a positive Covid test on the 29th,” Balter posted on social media.“We are awaiting information from QLD Health. Due to the wait times and lengthy processes we have made the call to stay closed until January 2nd as we don’t have enough staff to cover the shifts (we are closed December 31st and January 1st anyway).“We are as disappointed as you guys about this and extend our deepest apologies for the inconvenience.“We’ll make sure to keep the beers cold for you and can’t wait to let the taps flow again in the new year.”Fanning took to Balter’s Instagram page to express his concern.“Hope everyone is all good,” he posted.The surfing legend founded the successful brewery as part of a consortium that included fellow former world champion Parkinson and World Surf League stars Bede Durbidge and Josh Kerr in 2016.The brewery was snapped up by brewing giant Carlton & United Breweries in 2019 for a reputed $200 million.
