Balter Subheading


Your taste buds come first.

A neat can and cool place to hang are great, but if the brews don’t tickle your tongue and put a grin on your face then they haven’t done their job. At Balter, they’re all about celebrating that enjoyment with you, because beer is more than just a drink. It brings tribes together and is a companion to many great moments in life.

More than just a name, BALTER is the sense of enjoyment you get from doing something you love, just for the thrill of it.

The lads at Balter created 6 brews using the best ingredients, technology and techniques to appeal to a broad range of palates and that are geared towards taste rather than brewing speed. Since 2016 the Balter beer has won a bunch of awards and continues to be an Aussie classic.

Quick Facts

  • Since starting in March 2016 their beer has won a bunch of awards. Most notably they took out Best International Pale Ale at the AIBA Awards in 2017, Champion Medium Size Brewery and Best Newcomer (rookie of the year). While it feels nice to be winning the approval of beer judges, they value the word of mouth from one friend to another more than anything else. If somebody loves what they do so much they feel it’s important enough to share with their mates, well, that’s the greatest accolade Balter could achieve. It’s why winning the GABS Hottest 100 Craft Beers two years in a row (2017, 2018) is one of Balter’s proudest achievements.
