TAKE THE LONG WAY, EXPLORE AND GIVE INTO YOUR THIRST FOR ADVENTURE, BECAUSE IT’S IN THESE MOMENTS THAT LIFE REVEALS ITS FULL FLAVOUR
A pioneer of the Brisbane craft beer scene, Green Beacon was founded in 2013 with the vision of creating a world class beer culture for the people of Brisbane.
It started with two mates and a couple of beers on the sandunes of Moreton Island, Queensland. Looking back over the bay towards Brisbane, a Green Beacon was spotted, an idea then sprouted, and Brisbane’s first craft brewery was born. The doors to Green Beacon’s Teneriffe brewery were opened on the Australia Day weekend of 2013.
Before long head brewer, Johann Van Der Walt, took the reins of the brewing operations and set about building a range of flavourful yet smashable beers. Green Beacon quickly established themselves as a world-class leader in Brisbane’s craft beer scene winning AIBA Champion Medium Australian Brewery for three consecutive years in 2017, 2018 and 2019. A brewery built on quality and integrity, where flavour, balance and consistency are at the forefront.
We believe in taking the long way, exploring and giving in to our thirst for adventure, because it’s in these moments that life reveals its full flavour. So, when it comes time to take that extra time, enjoy it. We’ll be here doing the same. Crafting a range of refreshingly flavourful and balanced beers, made with uncompromising dedication to quality so you can taste the passion and respect poured into each one.
