Ballistic currently sells a range of canned beers and operates three exciting venues around
Brisbane, two that brew beer on premises.
As part of the partnership, Founder First’s Indie Craft Collective will take Ballistic products to
customers across Australia, helping the brand expand out of its home market of Queensland, initially into Victoria and New South Wales.
The partnership also provides an opportunity to joint venture for further expansion of
Ballistic’s successful brewpub concept outside of Queensland.
Founders First CEO, Mark Haysman, said the business was excited to add the Ballistic
partnership to the company’s growing portfolio.
“Ballistic is a brand that has proved incredibly popular with customers in Queensland, and
we see huge potential in taking these quality beers to customers across the country”, Mark
“Ballistic’s beers have big bold flavours, that have been a hit with customers.
“But far from being a beer that only appeals to hardcore craft drinkers, they pride themselves as having a beer for every drinker.
“Backed by the Indie Craft Collective’s growing national sales team, we are confident sales
will grow as we take it to a much bigger audience of customers across Australia.”
Ballistic is the fourth brewery to partner with Founders First, following on the back of similar
partnerships with Jetty Road, Foghorn and Sauce.
Today’s announcement follows the company’s two oversubscribed capital raisings for 2019,
and continued the momentum as Founders First heads towards a prospective IPO.
