About Us

Craft beer is our Passion

A dream was realised in 2004 when two mates; one with a love of  beer and one with an undying loyalty, noticed the Australian beer market was lacking real craft beer….. Thus Phoenix Beers was born.

The company’s namesake, a Buddhist Kelpie-Cross named Phoenix, and his mate Leif Ryan, began to bring the world’s tastiest and unique brewed beverages to Perth and beyond. Since then, the name Phoenix Beers has become synonymous with the best the beer world has to offer.

It all started with Weihenstephan: the world’s oldest brewery (anno 1040) and world leaders in the art and science of brewing. Building such an internationally recognised brand within Australia was an important first step for Phoenix Beers and it allowed us to introduce the Australian public to styles that were not too unfamiliar, but whose quality and flavour had not been seen on our shores before. This also opened doors in Europe and the UK and not too far after Brasserie du Bocq, Schlenkerla and Charles Wells had joined the portfolio.

Since those early days the portfolio has continued to expand, although the mission remains the same. Now boasting a range including craft beer pioneers Sierra Nevada, who have inspired so many of today’s craft brewers, the leaders of the Craft Beer Can revolution Oskar Blues, Scottish brewing Anarchists BrewDog, Lambic beer demi gods Cantillon and our crazy brewing alchemist cousins from over the ditch Garage Project to name a few. All leaders in the craft beer revolution that is gaining followers around the world every day.

Craft beer is our Passion and we hope that by bringing these wonderful beers to our shores, someday it will become your passion too.
