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.

Available on tap and in bottles.

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.

Hello. I'm Tracy Grimshaw, this is a Currant Affair

Collaboration with the Wig & Pen

Redurrant Sour Ale - 4.8% ABV

Tracy's Pleasantly piquant tart nose rests face down on a subtle pillow of fresh redcurrants.

The result is a Melange of sweet, sour and subtly salty sherbet fizz bubbling out of a soft creamy wheat Body before collapsing comfortably into a Nutty marzipan bed.

This IS a currant affair.

Available on tap for a very limited time.

Tennent's Peak

Double IPA - 8.0% ABV

Fresh from the brew house, the Tennent's Peak Double IPA draws upon the legendary ‘first batch’ of Mount Tennent Pale Ale that bragged flavours too intense and heavy to be classed as a session pale ale.

Inspired by those memories and the calls from Canberra beer lovers to bring the beer back, we’ve produced a special small batch for the Canberra Craft Beer and Cider Festival. We’ve used the same hop combination and the same firm, malty backbone. We’ve scaled it up a couple of notches and blown the beer out to be a bolder, stronger, bitterer hop bomb of deliciousness and satisfaction.

Much like climbing a mountain, Tennent’s Peak may leave you short of breath at the first step, a bitter taste in your mouth as you progress, but the reward sure is there at the finish.

The beer will also be available at Transit Bar and the Durham Castle Arms, with more venues coming on board next week!

On tap only for a very limited time.

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 and in bottles.

Brickworks Brown Ale

American Brown Ale - 5.6% ABV

Bricks form the strong foundation of a good home. Brickworks Brown forms the foundation of a good time.

Toasted bread, roasted coffee and sweet chocolate flavours combine, balanced with a subtle bitterness from floral and earthy Ella hops. Malty. Chocolatey. Roasty. Toasty.

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.
