Swell Brewing Co.Dan Wright has been in search of the perfect wave since he first waxed a surfboard. He’s also been in search of the perfect beer. While trekking the world on a two-year surf and snowboard odyssey, an idea brewed. Swell Brewing Co. is the result. Originally brewed in the back shed of Dan and wife Corrina’s vineyard in McLaren Vale, the aim of Swell Brewing Co. is to share our premium craft beer with others. We are passionate about craft beer, using the finest ingredients we can source and our brewing skills to bring our individual flavour. Coming to brewing from a wine background, we wanted our beers to represent new layers of flavour and texture, and to be a first choice for matching with food.
