Sustain | You

Sustainability – we are constantly working to reduce our impact on the planet and bring your brewing and distilling supplies to you as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Since Day 0 at Sustainability has been at the forefront of our thinking and is one of our 5 foundational core values.  We know its a popular buzzword nowadays, however, around here it guides us each and every day in the decisions we make and how we work to get your precious brewing and distilling supplies to you as efficiently and effectively as possible.

One small example is waste packaging.  Everything that comes into warehouse is turned around and reused either as a shipper or as filler for our customers e-commerce orders.  We will never ask for your forgiveness if you receive an order with some stuffing that was shrink wrap on a pallet or filler in a carton of goods we received. We will ask for your forgiveness if we ship your order too slowly, because Speed and Service are two more of our 5 fundamental core values at

Our Search is Your Satisfaction! We are thrilled to announce a NEW! partnership with a 100% Australian Owned and Run Cooperage who have a Cooperage in South Australia and in Tasmania.  We have heard our customers cries for some high quality sustainable reusable barrels with a story to tell so please read on...

1st Life:

These barrels started their life as wine barrels in the world-famous Barossa Valley where they held Barossa red wine for a number of years.

2nd Life:

In their second life, they were used to hold and mature some of the country’s most celebrated Tawney (Port) for many years.

3rd Life:

After they had served their time maturing sweet fortified Tawny, they were sent down to the Tasmanian Cask Company where they were hand coopered into smaller barrels for a local whisky producer, along with receiving a shave and generous charr. In their 3rd life, they held and matured Tasmanian whisky from a producer that has won the highest awards locally and internationally for their whisky.

4th Life:

These barrels are now looking for their 4th home.  Our Search is Your Satisfaction! Can you look after these barrels and store your own precious clean or sour beer or spirit?

Fresh Jack - IPA - Fresh Wort Kits are here! NEW!

Fresh Jack | IPA | Fresh Wort Kit is a hat tip is to the founders and brewers of Deschutes' for bringing the world Fresh Squeezed IPA and more importantly sharing with humble homebrewers like us and you how to have a crack at brewing your own at home. We did take a lot from their hopping regime, however we did not fully replicate their malt bill opting to tip our hat to someone else we admire for sharing his knowledge of how to brew great beer, so we opted for a malt bill not dissimilar to the one used by Matt Brynildson at Firestone Walker in his Union Jack IPA.

We hop you love Fresh Jack IPA as much as we love brewing the fresh wort kit for you to brew happy at home :-). Let us know what you think? Give the beer a "review after you brew happy" and make sure you #brewhappy and #drinkresponsibly
