Helios Brewing Company

We've been nominated for two Beerie Awards!

We feel very honored to be nominated for two Beerie Awards:

* Best New Brewery.
* The Gold Beerie for 'Best community contributor'.

As we are newcomers to the beer scene in Brisbane, we didn't expect to get a nomination for a Gold Beerie. So you can imagine our surprise when we received the phone call about our nomination! We were very excited!

The details of our nominations and how you can vote online are on The Beerie webpage: https://www.thebeeries.com/vote-now

Then there is a big party on the 20th September to celebrate and find out who the winners are. You can buy tickets too, just check out The Beerie's website for details.

What The Beeries had to say about us: "Nominated for their commitment to environmental sustainability, we love that Helios Brewing is producing great beer with great environmental practices. A true leader in our community setting a wonderful example for us all to follow."

Kronos Release

It’s the middle of winter and it also marks our 6 months of being open.

So we decided to brew a huge beer.

Introducing Kronos, available from 4pm Thursday night 12th July.

Kronos comes in at 11%, with 79EBC and 7 IBUs.

Kronos, the king of the Titans, and father of the first generation of the Olympian gods, he overthrew his father and ruled during the mythological Golden Age, until he was overthrown by his own son Zeus (our IIPA). Kronos also fathered Hades (our Stout) and Poseidon (our Pale Ale).

It’s our half year anniversary!

It may seem small to some people, but it is our half year anniversary. Over the past six months we have learnt so much about running a business, brewing beer, wholesale sales, marketing, customer service, council approval processes, certifications. The list goes on.

So we thought we would celebrate this milestone with you and thank you for your continued support.

Friday the 13th July - from 4:00 pm



* Wear your Helios t-shirt and buy a beer. You get the second one for half price!
* Bring in your Helios branded Growler or Squealer and you get it filled for half price!
* Buy a Helios branded Growler or Squealer on the night and fill it for half price!

(Whoa that was a lot of exclamation marks)

We will have a Food Truck onsite for the night

A great brewery needs to have great beer. Head Brewer Charlie clearly shows his strengths in that area. He makes great beer! Customer feedback has always been fantastic and he is central to the Helios Team. Scott also has shown why he is a certified brewing judge by creating delicious beer recipes. He also spends a lot of time sourcing local contractors and developing our continual improvement in our environmental sustainability processes. Tony had the vision for the bar design and sourced the wood for the bar top and the front. He also chose our floor coverings, lights and furniture. Jayne does lots of the ‘behind the scenes’ items with the accounting, excise reporting, invoicing and social media.

Here are a few photos of our early days at the ‘warehouse’. We marked out the floor to show where the equipment would go. We also hired a cherry picker so the graphic designer could paint the Helios mural on the wall before the tanks arrived.

Otherwise it will be available on our regular taps from 4pm Thursday night 12th July. Kronos comes in at 10.9%, with 79EBC and 7 IBUs.

Kronos, the king of the Titans, and father of the first generation of the Olympian gods, he overthrew his father and ruled during the mythological Golden Age, until he was overthrown by his own son Zeus (our IIPA). Kronos also fathered Hades (our Stout) and Poseidon (our Pale Ale).

Winter! Time to let the brakes off in the Brewhouse. You could say we’ve gone large with Kronos. The first in what will be an annual release.

Malt complexity and a palate weight that will carry for days. The grist has been layered with loads of toasted and biscuit malts to lay the foundations for the ever-luscious crystal and signature chocolate malt both from Simpsons in the UK. We decided to go sans any heavily roasted acidic roasted grains, with warming alcohols, mid palate biscuit and still present acidity from the 900 EBC chocolate malt all playing their role superbly. Heavily hopped though well disguised this will be a breakfast or dessert stout for the ages.
