2017 Ballistic Beer Wrap Up

January 4th, 2018 Posted by Blog 0 thoughts on “2017 Ballistic Beer Wrap Up”

As we wrapped up our first year at Ballistic Beer Co we looked back at the insane year it’s been and where it all began!! As all good breweries should start, Ballistic Beer Co’s origin lay in the celebrations after the January 2014 Ashes when Australia had a clean sweep of the Poms. From what was just set out to be a beer filled day, it very quickly turned into a beer filled future. Having opened our doors in early 2017, we are extremely excited about what we have achieved just in our first year.

Our achievements are due to the support of the local community and wider Brisbane communities, the delicious beer created by our brewing team and the efforts of the rest of the team that work behind the scenes to ensure Brisbane is serviced with the best beer possible!

Here are some our 2017 highlights:

  • Won 4 gold medals for our beers
  • Nominated for Best Bartender and Best Brewer at the Beeries
  • Grew from just Lachy and David to more than 15 team members
  • Released 20 different beers
  • Put 2 of our best-selling beers into cans

Come on down to Ballistic Beer Co on Saturday the 13th of January to celebrate our first birthday with a Ballistic Beer Co Carnival. Kicking off at 1pm at 53 McCarthy Road, Salisbury this is one you don’t want to miss! For more information click here.

Let us introduce you to Jake Harrison, our Assistant Brewer! This weekend celebrates the launch of Jake’s first Ballistic Beer, the Renegade Saison, so we thought it was time to introduce you to one the many faces behind Ballistic Beer Co.

After almost a decade working as an Environmental Science Consultant Jake was ready for a new challenge. His home brewing hobby turned into a full blown obsession very quickly. One thing lead to another and he ended up at Ballistic!

Jake’s pick of the Ballistic beers is the Australian Psycho IPA. “I love IPAs but this beer sits in its own space when compared to many other commercial IPA examples. I love the combination of the robust malt profile and big punchy Australian hops. It’s a bold yet balanced IPA that has some really unique flavour profiles.”

His all-time favourite beer is a Saison Dupont, “Its my fav for a few reasons. It’s simple in design but complex in character. The flavour profile is epic – spicy citrus notes layered over a simple pilsner base. It’s got such a long history and has been brewed by five generations of the same family. It’s elegant, beautiful and consistent. A classic.”
