Little Bang Brewing Company
Straight from the suburbs of Adelaide, we are Fil and Ryan and our families. We used to make video games for a living, we were nerds for games. Now we make beer, we’re much, much bigger nerds about beer. In 2013 we started collecting equipment, materials and tools, and over the next 18 months we designed and built a brewery in Fil’s garage. It was crowded, and we couldn’t make enough beer, so we moved to a little warehouse Stepney. It’s much nicer there.
The Little Bang Brewery is different to most commercial breweries, it’s a mixture of brewing and wine making equipment, and other bits and pieces we either found or invented. Brew days see us poking things with thermometers, hydrometers, pH meters, stirring with paddles, dragging hoses around, weighing things out, squinting at calculators and cleaning it all by hand. Soooo much cleaning. Since opening in Stepney we’ve managed to save enough for a couple more fermentors, and a proper big-boy mash tun, and a pool table! We don’t use preservatives or filter our beers, and they’re all vegan-friendly. We often find that we get a more complex, more interesting product with less intervention and a bit more time and patience.
