Our new craft beer brewery opened in December 2017. Located on Brisbane’s Southside at Yeerongpilly, we have a 15 bbl brewery system which is run by our Head Brewer Charlie. Charlie is a professional brewer and he sure knows how to make great beer!
We have a bar downstairs, and plenty of seating upstairs. We’ve got some games for the kids to play while you sit back and relax. Or you could play too. We are also ok with dogs, as long as your dog is friendly and doesn’t bother other patrons.
If you are looking for something to take home to drink, we sell Growlers and Squealers which you can fill with any of our beer on tap. We happily fill Growlers and Squealers from other breweries too.
The owners Scott, Tony and Jayne are all environmental specialists. They met working in the industry many years ago. So it made sense to make the brewery as environmentally sustainable as possible. The building is solar powered, hence the name Helios:
Helios was the Greek sun God, tasked by Zeus with driving a chariot carrying the sun through the sky each day for all mankind. Helios Brewing Company uses the power of the sun to create craft beer sustainably. By designing the brewery from the ground up to be water and power efficient we are aiming to do right thing by the environment.
CHARLIE: The Head Brewer of Helios Brewing Company. Charlie is a talented brewer with many years experience in designing and brewing award winning craft beer.
We searched nation wide for our Head Brewer and had many a worthy applicant before we received an email from a Head Brewer in Perth.
Charlie started home brewing in the late 90's before starting his journey towards brewing for a living in the wine industry.
6 years from 2000 as a Cellar Hand at Houghton Wines in Perths Swan Valley gave him a very solid grounding in a large cellar environment.
He gained a Certificate in Brewing and Packaging from the Institute of Brewing and Distilling while still in the wine game. 2006 saw a start a Gage Roads Brewing co progressing from an assistant brewer to a senior role inside 2 years. 2011 was a move into his first Head Brewers role at Mash Brewing co back in the Swan Valley again.
A quiet start soon blossomed into hauls of trophies across the countries show scene including:
- Champion Australian Beer and Champion IPA for “Copy Cat” at the Australian International Beer Awards and multiple Gold medals there since.
- Champion Draught Beer at Royal Sydney with his Amber Ale “Russell”.
- Champion West Australian beer and Champion Commercial beer as well as 2014 and 2015 Champion West Australian Brewery at home at the Perth Royal Beer show.
He's also judged at Perth Royal Beer Show from 2014 onwards.
Charlie has settled in well at Helios and already showing off Belgian Ales, Single hop IPA's and Black IPA's as well as some tidy Lagers and a soon to come mid strength Lager and Ale rotational range.
SCOTT: He knows his beer and loves the variety it can bring. He was the original mastermind behind the Helios Brewing Company.
TONY: Tony’s dream job was to own a brewery. We quizzed him about his favourite beer, and he said “ummm everything….”. He loves a Pale Ale, IPA and a Chocolate Stout to round out the night.
JAYNE: Jayne’s favourite beer is an IPA, but she also loves Pale Ale and Red IPA. Hoppy beers make Jayne happy.
