Phillips Brewery

A local success story – Phillips Brewery has been expanding since its conception in 2001 and we’ve been proud to play a part in Matt Phillips’ latest dream.

This particular commercial property has seen quite a bit of history before the brewery came on board and there were no shortage of interesting surprises when the digging started. Decades of dead commercial enterprises had to be excavated and removed before we could get a solid foundation for the new malting plant.

Sixteen tonnes of rebar followed by over a hundred cubic meters of concrete creates the base for 7 towering silos that mark the beginning and end stages of the malting process. Inside the rebuilt warehouse, massive steel frames support complex processing machinery that was shipped from around the world and assembled on site. To mark the successful completion of the whole undertaking, Mayor Lisa Helps was excited to cut the ribbon at the Grand Opening.

To provide space for hosted tours, updates to the retail outlet were required shortly afterwards. The freedom to run with the design resulted in some incredible unique finishing carpentry and was highly enjoyable for the entire team.

Having been so involved in the technical aspects of only a single component in the beer making process, we all have a new respect for the Phillips crew and everyone responsible for so many great tasting beverages.
