Cartwright Springs Brewery
Cartwright Spring Brewery
Thirty-five seconds was all it took to change André Rieux’s life.
That’s how long it took him to decide that an artesian spring he discovered in the forest near Pakenham would be the start of a new adventure in brewing.
The result? Cartwright Springs, a brewery that not only uses natural spring water, but preserves the environment by eschewing the use of chemicals for cleaning, brewing and sanitation.
“Locating a brewery so close to its water source required some innovative thought and process engineering to make the brewery very environment friendly,” he says.
A passionate traveler who prefers natural environments, André brings home inspiration from around the world – then bottles it for fans of his unique Cartwright Springs beers.
