We love our town - even though it’s probably the worst place in Australia to make beer. The temperature is too hot (or too cold) and the freight is killer. But we do it anyway. Why? Why not. This is Alice Springs, Northern Territory.
A place where you get angry if it takes you more than 5 minutes to get to work (fingers crossed there isn’t a train). A place where we will drive to 450km Uluru to get a cheap airfare but don’t like to drive 6km to the other side of town. It’s too cold to get in the pool if it’s under 40 but every aircon in town should be set to 18 at all times. Unless it's winter where it should be set at 35. We’re a weird bunch. But we still love us. And you too. Welcome to Alice Springs Brewing Co. We make beer here.
Back in 20-diggity, Kyle went to Brian's house with some beers and an idea. A highly experienced and knowledgeable home brewer with countless Alice Springs brews under his belt, Brian’s advice was simple: Don’t do it! There were a number of hurdles to overcome and provided the lengthy list of reasons it would be hard to do and probably why nobody had done it before. Kyle the loudmouthed Melbourne ex-pat, was not one to be put off by such logical reasons. Alice Springs was screaming out for its own brewery & this screaming was driving Kyle wild…
In 2018 Alice Springs Brewing Co was born! Starting off with a 50L pilot brewery and then adding a 500L brewing system a couple of months later. Then, as the say in Alice Springs, it went boonta… Today Alice Springs Brewing Co is continuing its rapid growth and expansion. In 2020 Alice Springs Brewing Co recruited new Head Brewer Jum Ryan (ex Little Creatures) who now oversees the day-to-day brewing operations. Alongside its taphouse operation, it also distributes to the whole of the Northern Territory and has plans to further expand into other states and territories in 2022.
Our full range of beers including core and limited releases can be enjoyed in our brewery bar and beer garden. A fully stocked bar plus a food menu designed to pair with our beers means good times, Thursday through Sunday every week.Make a booking
