Live your passion


Live your passion

At Burleigh we live our passion everyday by making the world’s best beers. Now we celebrate our friends who are living theirs! #liveyourpassion

Passion is the reason we get out of bed in the morning, passion for our craft, for our town, and our community. It’s what inspired our new Live Your Passion series, a celebration of the immensely talented creatives bringing their own passions to life. So get amongst it, you’ll feel better for it, we promise.


Tom Gilroy @purpose_built_moto
Introducing local talent Tom Gilroy who creates custom motorcycles in his Purpose Built Moto workshop in Mermaid on the Gold Coast. He started building bikes in 2014, he bought myself a heap of junk and started chopping it up. By the time he’d finished that project in 2016, he had gained a decent following on the project online. Shortly after he was asked to build his first customer project. Tom will feature his handcrafted motorcycles as Artist In Residence at Burleigh Brewing for the month of August.

Yoshi Takeda @takedacustoms
Yoshiro, or Yoshi as his friends call him, was born and raised in a small army town called Chitose in Hokkaido Island, Japan. He moved over to the Gold Coast around 15 years ago where his passion for surf board shaping began. Yoshi is one of the most humble, creative and talented board shapers in the industry and we are stoked to have his boards on display at the Burleigh Brewing Taphouse for February.

Clayton Blake
As the only Australian artist invited to exhibit at Burning Man in 2018, Clayton Blake knows a thing or two about creating art that makes a difference. The Gold Coast installation artist transforms everyday items into large-scale pieces that challenge beliefs and perceptions to effect change. Creation is at the heart of Clayton’s daily life — he aims to do at least one thing every day that will evolve his artistic practice. Clayton believes we all have the capacity to make a positive contribution to the world and, his advice for anyone considering following their dream is simple — do it! Take the leap, and don’t waste another moment doing something you’re not passionate about. But most importantly, follow your truth and be kind to one another. Wise words, eh? #liveyourpassion

Aimee Massie @aimeemassie
After ditching the BMX, Aimee picked up a skateboard and has been hooked ever since. Driven by the desire to break the tired old opinion that chicks and sticks don’t mix, she has proven that these types of stereotypes are best left in the dark ages. With her recent invitation to compete in the X GAMES this October in Sydney, we look forward to seeing Aimee take her passion to the next level.
