Brewery Flooring Ideas
Are you starting a brewery in Brisbane or Gold Coast? If so, then you should know selecting the right flooring could make or break your new business. That’s because the floor of a brewery sees a lot of intense activity during the day. There’s heavy foot traffic, forklifts, and machinery all wearing on the floor. Also, brewery floors tend to see a lot of moisture due to the nature of the business. As you can imagine, there are plenty of liquids coasting about in vessels, kegs, packages, and more. Should any spills occur, you want to make sure your floor won’t stain or get slippery.
At My Floor, our team of professionals can install flooring solutions perfect for breweries. We’ve already installed flooring for many breweries throughout Australia! Trust us; we know what goes into quality brewery flooring that lasts.
There are a few key factors you should look for when selecting a flooring solution for your brewery. For one, it’s essential to know what type of brewery you’ll be operating. If your brewery only manufactures beer, your floors should be:
- Chemically resistant. There are lots of chemical agents used in breweries. As a result, you want to make sure your floor won’t stain or let chemicals build up.
- Non-porous. That means there are no cracks or gaps in your floor. A non-porous surface will prevent the buildup of bacteria or other harmful microorganisms.
- Extremely durable. Kegs, barrels, and heavy machinery are abundant in breweries. It would be best if you had a floor that can withstand heavy impacts from drops or spills. That way, your floor will stay impeccable during the workday.
- Anti-slip. Breweries see a lot of foot traffic, and you want to keep your employees safe. That’s why skid-resistance is a must!
- Able to handle both wet and dry conditions. Should some liquid spill on the floor, you want to make sure that nobody slips. A waterproof surface is a must-have in a brewery!
If your brewery also has a restaurant or retail area, your floors should be all the above plus:
- Easy to clean and maintain. If you have a tasting section or restaurant, you want to keep your floors looking good. That’s why simple to keep clean floors are a must since your staff will be quite busy during the day.
- Non-slip. You don’t want any visitors to slip on any wet surfaces, so a non-slip additive is necessary. This is especially true if you have a tasting section where a lot of liquids get served.
- Decorative. You want to attract customers to your restaurant or tasting area, right? Then it would be best if you had a floor that’s economical but also eye-grabbing and shiny. Many of our flooring solutions at My Floor are perfect for this!
Brewery Flooring Solutions at My Floor
By now, you should know what makes a reliable brewery floor. It would be best if you had a floor that’s durable, non-porous, easy to clean, and looks great. Let’s take a look at the most popular flooring options for breweries at My Floor! First, we’ll look at flooring solutions for breweries that only manufacture beer.
An epoxy coating from My Floor is a fantastic option for your brewery. Epoxy is very easy to install, is super durable, and is relatively cheap. Epoxy floors are also renowned for how hard they are. If you’re looking for a foundation that can withstand high impacts, epoxy is about the best there is. You can install an epoxy coating over an existing floor or create a foundation made entirely of epoxy.
Epoxy floors are chemically resistant and non-porous. You won’t have any issues with the floor staining or building up with bacteria or mold. You can also add slip-resistant agents to an epoxy floor or coating. That means that you won’t have any trouble if a surface is wet or slick with oil.
An epoxy floor can also put up with tons of foot and vehicle traffic without any problems. Since they’re non-porous, they’re also effortless to clean and maintain.
Epoxy flake floors are just like epoxy coatings but with a decorative flair. You see, they contain tiny vinyl chips inside the coating. You can control the size and color of these chips to achieve the look you want. Epoxy flake floors come with all the same benefits as epoxy floors. They’re chemically resistant, non-porous, and very durable. Flake floors are also cheap and quick to install. This is an excellent option if you want a little bit of style added to your brewery floor!
Now let’s look at some flooring options for breweries that do more than manufacture beer. If your brewery contains a restaurant or retail section, these are your best options.
Mechanically polished concrete, or MPC for short, is a fantastic indoor option. This is an excellent choice if you’re looking to attract customers to your restaurant or tasting area. That’s because you can select the gloss level on MPC systems. You can choose from a low-gloss, semi-gloss, or high-gloss finish. A high-gloss finish is highly reflective and decorative. It’s a great way to establish your restaurant as a clean, inviting, classy environment.
MPC systems also allow full choice over aggregate exposure. This adds another decorative element to the floor. Aggregates are tiny pieces of stones inside of the concrete mix. The more that we grind back the surface, the more aggregates will show.
MPC systems are very, very durable, and have a long lifespan. You won’t have to re-grind your floors for over 20 years if properly maintained. For this reason, it’s a very cost-effective flooring option in the long-term. The only downside is the lack of slip-resistance. MPC is primarily a decorative indoor option and shouldn’t be used in your brewery factory side.
Grind and seal systems are fantastic for both indoor and outdoor floors. For breweries, you can use them in both the manufacturing and retail side of your business. That’s because you can add non-slip agents to grind and seal concrete. Not only that, but you also get full control over the gloss finish and aggregate exposure. Grind and seal can look very decorative and provides many options for color and design.
You can use a low-gloss, nil-exposure grind and seal system for the factory side of your business. It will be slip-resistant, durable, easy to clean, and more.
For the retail side of your business, you can use a high-gloss, full-exposure grind and seal system. It will look decorative, be easy to maintain, and will still be easy to keep clean. In other words, you can have the best of both worlds with grind and seal concrete! Don’t wait to reach out to us at My Floor if you’re interested!

Then you need to reach out to us at My Floor for a Feather Finish! It’s a durable compound that’s quick and easy to install over any existing surface. If you’re unable to install polished concrete on your floors, this is a great substitute. It’s still durable, easy to clean, and offers a decorative look. While it’s not recommended for the factory side of your business, it’ll do great for the front of the house!
