Online distribution and bottle shop websites are now in an abundance throughout Australia, therefore in order to stand out from the crowd, new comers will need to be unique or offer something a little bit different. Enter Steve O’Connor, owner of the new booze distribution website beveragesa.com. Launching officially on 4 November 2016, Beverage SA is dedicated wholly to South Australian wines, spirits, ciders and craft beer.
Steve, who is a process engineer by trade, has had plenty of experience in the beverage industry, owning and operating the Farm Shed craft beer bar and restaurant in Handorf since 2011. The bar itself features four rotating beer taps and a fridge stocked to the brim with over 30 different SA labels.
Owning his own tasting rooms and restaurant wasn’t enough for Steve, he wanted to be immersed in the industry and therefore he started to venture down the distribution route. Apart form his new website, Steve is also handling the distribution and sales of all Robe Town Brewing and Woolshed Brewing products within SA. Looking into the future, there is also talk of opening a brewery/distillery in Cudlee Creek called Union Bridge but that is a whole other story.
