More than just a name, BALTER is the sense of enjoyment you get from doing something you love, whether you’re good at it or not.
The cool thing is this enjoyment can be found anywhere. You could be winning world titles, or simply feeling triumphant because you’ve navigated the mind bend of putting an ikea shelf together. Its purest origins can be found at the end of a good day’s work when you sit back, sip on an epic beer and go… aaaah!
At Balter, we’re all about celebrating that enjoyment with you, because beer is more than just a drink: it draws tribes together and is a companion to many great moments in life.
Our #1 philosophy is that your taste buds come first. A neat can and cool place to hang are great, but if our brews don’t tickle your tongue and put a grin on your head then we haven’t done our job.

BrewDog is redefining the UK craft beer scene as you know it... Back in 2007, James and Martin said sayonara to industrially brewed lagers and stuffy ales and – after brewing their first batch of beer in James' garage – set about making hardcore beers full time. Both only 24 at the time, James and Martin leased a building, got some scary bank loans and spent all their money on stainless steel.
Luckily the gamble paid off and after just three years, BrewDog has managed to kick-start the UK craft beer revolution and with wave upon wave of cool, contemporary and progressive beers continues to challenge perceptions of beer and brewing the world over.
Starting with our flagship Brooklyn Lager, the portfolio of Brooklyn Brewery has grown to a wide-ranging collection of beers, always keeping an eye to traditional brewing techniques, even as Brewmaster Garrett Oliver and his team seek to push the boundaries of beer. It’s now easy to find a smooth Brooklyn Lager, hoppy East IPA or roasty Brown Ale in your favorite watering holes. Each season brings beloved seasonals like Brooklyn Summer Ale and Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout back to the shelves and taps, ushering in the joys of the changing weather.
MARGARET RIVER, WA
At our craft brewery, we focus on what makes beer great without all the hoopla. That doesn’t mean we aren’t fussy about how we make our beer, we just prefer to let the beer do the talking once it’s in a glass in front of you.
This is because our story starts and finishes with the one of our most prized beer ingredients – people. Our beer is about substance over style, and founded on the belief that beer making is both an art form and great way to wind down. Simply put we believe in beer.

FREMANTLE, WA - CHAMPION BEER 2016 (AIBA) FOR LITTLE DOVE
Gage Roads is the strip of ocean that separates Rottnest Island and Fremantle in Western Australia. It’s a place where you can relax, escape, explore, or seek out adventure. We saw a lot of ourselves in that little spot. That’s why named our brewery after it. We set up shop in an old margarine factory just outside Freo over 14 years ago and we’ve been crafting beer there ever since. We make a range of ales and lagers, all which of which are inspired by our place here on the WA coast.
Goose Island has flown south from its Chicago roots to the best bars in Australia. We're an innovator and leader in the craft of brewing and strive to create beers that define styles, win awards, and captivate the hearts, imaginations, and palates of beer drinkers..
We are an Australian owned brewery based in Fremantle, Western Australia. This brewery started from a passion for the taste of a great beer and a passion for exploring, in its fullest sense, the art and science of brewing with yeast (zymurgy).
At Innate Brewers we focus on honouring the art craft of brewing, by skillfully developing brewed products where familiar flavours are stretched, built, and played with in a small hand-built brew-house. Our products reflect a design for the different. They reflect the true, live variety of fresh, natural beer.
It started with a group of mates. All hailing from the beer scene, these guys wanted to brew an awesome, hop-driven American Pale Ale with a distinctive aroma and delicious flavour. A huge shed (and former crocodile farm) on the water’s edge in Fremantle was to become the home of this beer and the birthplace of Little Creatures Brewing. Work began in 1999 and we swung the doors open in late 2000.
This is a brewery built on Pale Ale – so much so in fact, that it was designed specifically to brew it the right way. Slowly, gently and patiently, our Pale takes nearly six weeks to brew, ferment, bottle and condition. We brought in the best hops we could find from the United States and started crafting a beer to startle the tastebuds of Aussie beer-drinkers and create a merry gang of flavour hounds.
Matso's is the Kimberley's award wining microbrewery and is a true Broome treasure. The owners of Matso's Broome Brewery are committed to the Kimberley region and the Western Australian tourism industry with an investment in accommodation throughout the region.
At the helm of Matso's Broome Brewery we are fortunate to have the services of Marcus Muller, a Master Brewer who has over 16 years brewing experience around the world. Marcus combines the finest natural ingredients, traditional time honoured brewing techniques and modern technology, to produce a range of beer styles that -above all else- aim to deliver flavour.
Mountain Goat started out in co-founder Dave’s backyard in the early 90′s. Dave was cranking out homebrews almost every weekend when a postcard turned up from Cam founder number two. Cam was back packing through Canada when he sent Dave a postcard saying “Dave, we gotta talk, we need to start a microbrewery in Melbourne…”
Mountain Goat has collected a swag of awards over the years for its tasty, all natural ales and now has an ever increasing number of bars and bottle shops around the country stocking its beers on tap and in bottle
NBC is Perth’s latest brewery, bar and restaurant located in the heart of the city at Northbridge Piazza. We wanted to provide a new and relaxed alternative venue in Perth’s entertainment precinct, open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
The custom built brewery currently produces four beers onsite including Beerland Lager, Beerland Pale Ale, Beerland Wheat and Beerland IPA. The amber liquid is only available over the bar, straight from the tank.
Founded in the back shed by Sunset Events – that motley crew otherwise known for dishing up the craftiest in aural rapture for nigh on two decades, with music festivals that are as uncompromising as they are unconventional – Otherside Brewing Co. is certainly not your average brewery…more a surrealist carnival that brews to the offbeat.
Only the choicest, most expressive ingredients are sourced – and the beer crafted to best express these pristine and uncompromised components, making for refreshing and inspired drinking that truly befits our enigmatic home base: Fremantle, Australia.
Welcome to the Otherside…where life’s a whole lot better!
CEO Michael Cameron said of the 16 month Pirate Life journey, which includes winning the Small Brewery trophy at this year's Australian International Beer Awards as well as last night's Champion Pale Ale, golds for its IIPA and Throwback IPA and silver for the Hopco collaboration NZ Pale Ale: "The team in Adelaide works their arses off and they're well led by Jack and Red.
The good ship Pirate Life added more swag to its swelling treasure chest last night, picking up the Champion Large Brewery trophy at the Craft Beer Awards in Brisbane. It continues a quite remarkable start to life for a brewery that only released its first beer on March 1 last year.
MARGARET RIVER, WA

BYRON BAY, NSW
Born and raised in Byron Bay, we take a fresh approach to brewing handcrafted beer in the Northern Rivers of NSW, one of the greatest places on Earth. We established Stone & Wood Brewing Company in 2008. The three boys - Brad, Jamie and Ross had spent many years working in the beer business. The dream was to quit ‘working for the man’, shed the corporate garbage and get back to basics.
Our brewing philosophy at Stone & Wood is based on brewing beer that makes the most of the ingredients available today. Beer that simply lets the flavours and aromas of the ingredients shine through by keeping the processes to a minimum. Beer that is simply good to drink!
MATILDA BAY, WA
A Yak is a big hairy Mongolian cow-like thing. They are used by Mongolian nomads for warmth, work and companionship. So what does a Yak have to do with beer? Well they are big and hair, yet surprisingly approachable – just like our beers.
We try to bring a light-hearted perspective to beer because we believe that life can get a bit boring if you take yourself too seriously. We love brewing beer and when you love what you do and have a good time doing it, it’s guaranteed to result in only good things.

Our Pressman’s cider range is proper cider, made from 100% Goulburn Valley apples, in the proper way.

Like most good stories, ours started over a beer. Meeting on opposite sides of the bar, Richard Adamson and Oscar McMahon got talking. It turned out they both shared a love of beer and a view that the Sydney beer scene was behind the times. It should, they thought, be more adventurous, innovative and fun. Since Richard knew how to brew and Oscar knew all the ins and outs of hospitality, they figured they could do more than just talk. The first Young Henrys beers were brewed in March 2012. A big part of our brewing philosophy is built on keeping things local and reducing our environmental impact.
