The Team

Although we walk tall (and every so often with a bit of a swagger) our team would not be complete without our friends. That includes everyone who's ever tried our beer and those who inspire and keep us humble through their feedback.

Thanks to you we're standing on the shoulders of giants.

Craft Beer

In order to make our truly epic brews, we have meticulously sourced exceptional ingredients from 4 different continents. However, we believe that the most important ingredient is the spirit that we pour into our craft. We're not afraid to brew massive, full flavour beers with heart and soul. That is why our beers will inspire you to take gigantic strides toward greatness.

Our Beers


Bold & Audacious Craft Beer 

Our current range of beers are all dry hopped as we are undeterred by the cost of this expensive ingredient. We just love hops so much that we cannot help ourselves to add them wherever and whenever we can. The results speak for themselves. We decided to change the name our first legendary brew from Punk Hop to Killer Hop. It is still exactly the same beer we became known for. At the same time we welcome the very exciting, very drinkable, The Guzzler to the Mad Giant range.

Here's to the days where nothing can quench your thirst.

The Guzzler is brewed to be light, complex and layered. Just like rocking it out in flowering fields filled with summer, the fresh grassy, floral and slight lemony aroma will satisfy the greatest thirst with crisp bitterness, refreshing carbonation and lingering malty sweetness on the palate.

Gone are the days of boring one dimensional Pilsners. Walk tall, think big and lead the pack.

Here's to those who won't take "no" for an answer.

We've cranked up the flavour by adding 3 types of aromatic hops in hedonistic quantities with a light malt bouquet brought in for backing. Expect gentle waves of light honey, biscuit and caramel from the special malts with an explosion of tropical fruits for fireworks. 

Stage dive into our Killer Hop APA like there's a thousand hands to catch you and you'll never look back as you crowd surf into the sunset.

Here's to our brewmaster's legendary father who devoted 9 years to building an aeroplane in his garage — only to crash it during his test flight. He is currently building Mark II. We salute you, sir.

Medium bitterness, like that first, failed attempt followed by the sweet biscuit, honey, caramel and toffee flavours of success followed by citrus and fruity hop aromas of everlasting glory. 

An elegant beer that slows down time for quiet contemplation around the drawing board as you plot your flight plan to success.
