Inspired by the great Sir Ernest Shackleton, The Shackleton Brewing Company upholds the values of exploration and innovation to bring you a uniquely crafted beers.


At Shackleton Brewing Company, we take pride in everything we produce. It is our attention to detail, the quality of our beer and the boundaries we push that matter most. Our brand is inspired by the great Sir Ernest Shackleton whose unrivaled story signifies leadership, exploration, and innovation. Please browse our site to get a better idea of who we are and what we do.


The Shackleton brand stems from Steve’s adventures to Antarctica. He spent 3 months exploring the open ocean of the South Atlantic as well as traversing the Antarctic continent. During his time there he read about the great Sir Ernest Shackleton who, during the early 1900s, began a voyage to cross the Antarctic continent. The compelling story of leadership, adventure, survival and an implacable drive for success resonated as qualities that Steve deemed valuable for this business.




Shackleton Brewing Company has had a significant influence on the local community, providing beer to pubs & restaurants, markets & festivals, charity events, weddings, and company functions. There are three core beers in the range that aim to tell a different story.

Kolsch / 4,5%  

The Kolsch is our flagship brew that has been distributed nationwide. Brewed similar to a pilsner, the Kolsch uses pilsner and wheat malt fermented at lower temperatures. The lagering element of this brew has given this beer a light body, spritzy texture, and subtle lingering bitterness. 

English Red Ale / 4,3% 

There’s a reason why the British are such great drinkers – they make great beer. We crafted this beer to display the styles’ attention to malt –hop balance. Carefully selected specialty malts have given this ale a beautiful red hue, accompanied by earthy aromatic British hops. Not to forget she is hand pull poured in a true British style.

Pale Ale / 5%

Far from pale! Inspired by Australian hops, this beer is full of colour with a vibrant malt character balanced by the earthy/piny hops. Given this beers’ glorious sessionability, it is an obvious choice for anyone looking for a full flavoured craft ale.​
