Episode #4: Matt Jancauscas and Christine Ballinger


We are thrilled to announce that for episode #4 of the Crafting a Circular Economy event series we are headed to the hinterland at the Brouhaha Brewery in Maleny.

On September 16th we will be providing the first networking opportunity of the series along with Brouhaha’s curated Beer and Bento experience. This is where guests can be introduced to some of their craft beers, the producers and artisans they work, and the opportunity to connect with other like-minded folk.

On the couch with host Todd Widdicombe will be Brouhaha’s Head Brewer and owner Matt Jancauscas and special guest Christine Ballinger from Falls Farm. These two local legends will be providing a deeper insight into their approach to business, what they are currently doing and what drives them.

There will also be some bonus spotlights on other circular economy innovators and thinkers from across the Hinterland including Helen Andrews, Spare Harvest and Ryan Hollis, Ever Focus.

Plus, updates from the ASPIRE team on how to join their sophisticated Circular Economy trading platform designed specifically for business.

Guests have the option to join in the conversation in-person at Brouhaha Brewery or stream it online (free of charge) from their homes via the Circular Economy Sunshine Coast Facebook page.

In person tickets are strictly limited to 40 (subject to COVID-19 updates).

$30 includes drink on arrival and Beer and Bento Experience. In addition, pizza may be pre-ordered (see below).

Free of charge for viewers watching online.

Doors open: 6.00pm
Bento, Beer and Banter: 6.30pm - 7.30pm
Hosted conversation: 7.30pm - 8.30pm (also streamed online)
