The label describes the beer as follows:

“Hard times can knock us down but united together we are stronger. Brewunity is an affordable, full flavoured Australian Pale Ale made in the face of crisis. Using innovative processes and Aussie ingredients we’ve shaved production costs to keep precious cash in your pocket. Let’s unite and stand together!”

The beer is priced at just $55 per carton of 24 and will be available online through the Ballistic web shop.  Also available at the Salisbury Brewery Bar and Ballistic Springfield for takeaway.

Lachy Crothers, Head Brewer, said “we haven’t skimped on the quality of this product”.

“It’s in line with our philosophy of using great local ingredients and being relentless with our quality processes. We have innovated by using a yeast strain that ferments quickly and cuts our production times so we can deliver beer fast without compromising on the taste or quality. We love how the beer tastes and we love what it stands for,” he said.

By using local ingredients, innovative new yeasts, existing packaging, reducing margins and by selling it direct to customers Ballistic have been able keep costs down to deliver a great value beer to their loyal supporters at a time when consumers will be looking to support their local brewery but are also conscious of their spending.

The Salisbury-based craft beer brewery was founded in 2016.  In 2018, Ballistic opened their first off-site bar, Ballistic Alehouse and Kitchen in West End, the Springfield Brewery, Alehouse and Kitchen opened in October 2019, with a brewery incorporated into the Alehouse.
