Est. 2017 in Salisbury, Queensland

Great beer has the power to bring people together. And we do just that.

In a world where loneliness is our greatest sickness, we are passionate about building communities and bringing people together.

Community is the foundation of our business. Our brewery Ballistic draws its name from Salisbury’s history as a secret producer of much of the ammunition used by the Australian army in World War II.

Our purpose? To give you the best beer & the best of times

Co-Founders Lachy Crothers and David Kitchen

for the love of hops

Head Brewer and Co-Founder Lachy Crothers is the driving force behind the award-winning beers at Ballistic Beer Co. Lachy loves his hops but he also believes beer is made to be enjoyed with friends.

His philosophy brews is quality and drinkability. Learning his craft in his home state of WA and later brewing at Camden Town in London, Lachy is a consummate professional. He was even winner of the Brewer of the Year at the 2018 The Beeries Awards.
