Pact (noun)

An agreement; a compact; a covenant.

From Latin pactum (“something agreed upon"), from paciscere (“to agree").

In 2015, three mates made a pact to brew great beer and never compromise on flavour, quality and creativity.

Pact was born in a tiny Canberra kitchen. Every Pact Beer starts as a handmade and homebrewed prototype. From the kitchen, we test it out, tweak it around, and then scale it up to brew 'gypsy style' at some of the finest breweries in the country with an embrace only Pact can provide. Once the yeast has done its job, we ship countless kegs and bottles of tasty beer across Canberra and around Australia.

Inspired by the flavours and aromas of malt, hops, and the special touch that only 50 billion yeast cells can provide, our beer recipes extend upon the classic style foundations wrought through thousands of years of beer making. Always brewed with food pairing in mind, our beers are inventive and interesting but never overbearing.

Our Beers


Mount Tennent Pale Ale

American Pale Ale - 5.2% ABV

Inspired by the picturesque mountain and the legend of its bushranger namesake, the Mount Tennent Pale Ale walks the tightrope of accessible, sessionable and mindblowing all at once. It's a tantalisingly hoppy and sessionable American Pale Ale with touches of tropical and citrus fruits.

Legend has it that John Tennent’s treasure is still buried at Mount Tennent, ACT. Many have tried to find it, but none have succeeded.

Never mind... now you can find a little bit of Tennent’s treasure in every sip.

This taste sensation came #52 in the 2016 GABS Hottest 100 beers!


Available on tap and in bottles.


L Yeah

Hoppy Lager - 5.4% ABV

Are lagers old, tired and boring? Yellow tasteless swill that your dad used to drink?

This is not your dad’s lager.
This is L Yeah. Hell yeah!

We’ve taken the traditional Pale Lager - a clean, crisp refreshing beer and infused it with a farm full of Loral hops.

Bringing equal parts old world noble and new world fruity hop awesomeness, the L yeah is an everyday beer with character, exposing melon, citrus, and fresh cacao.

Can I get an L yeah?
Hell yeah!


Available on tap and in bottles.


42.2 Summer Ale

Blond Ale - 4.2% ABV

Inspired by the hottest Canberra temperature on record, the 42.2 Summer Ale is light, dry, crisp, refreshing quaffer.

Even in extreme heat, hops are important. Really important. We’ve used a secret blend of all Australian hops to give just enough fruity punch to get the mouth party started and keep it going all through Summer.


Available on tap, in cans, and in bottles.


Funky Monkey Drummer

Sour Fruit Ale - 4.6% ABV

The Monkey Drummer has gone to drum school.

A Collaboration from Pact and the Wig and Pen brewed specially for the Natioanl Multicultural festival. Take the tongue journey - a refreshingly tart brew with a tasty kick of jammy berry goodness.


Available on tap for a very limited time.


Three Lakes Hefeweizen

Bavarian Hefeweizen - 4.8% ABV

A spritzy and refreshing Aussie take on the Bavarian classic with hints of banana, citrus, and clove.

The Pact Three Lakes Hefeweizen may look like it came from Lake Burley Griffin, but it tastes like heaven on a stick. It won #1 National Amateur Wheat Beer an unprecedented three years in a row, and now you can get a taste of it, too.


Seasonally available.


100 Acres IPA

Americo-English IPA - 6.0% ABV

Drawing equal cues from both the English and American IPA traditions, the 100 Acres IPA exudes a beautiful bouquet of clean pine and floral aromas with a firm bitterness that excites without overwhelming the palate.

All these hops are supported by a firm biscuity, honey malt which make this IPA a well balanced and tasty beer.


Available on tap and in bottles.


With the ever increasing number of beers in the lineup, some beers will come and go with the seasons.
