Founded in 2012, the Deeds Brewing facility in Glen Iris is a relatively fresh addition to the Melbourne craft beer scene. From humble beginnings brewing from home, the decision to open a brewing facility was born of a very simple ethos the team at Deeds adhere to: they brew beer that they would want to drink.
This modus operandi is well-suited to Deeds Head Brewer Justin Corbitt, as his and his team’s palette for a well-brewed beer is as extensive as the range of meticulously crafted beers the team create in house.
“Our Senior Brewer, Packaging Manager, and their teams, the shift brewers, owners Pat and Dave, warehousing, admin, sales, marketing, and logistics all work together to make this happen,” says Justin.
In his role, Justin oversees the production and packaging of each of their beers including such popular core brews as Juice Train; Deed’s signature hazy, tropical IPA and Half Time; a hoppy pale ale with notes of pineapple.
Deeds releases four new and limited-edition beers every month, in addition to the five core brews that stay on brew year-round. “Our focus is on barrel-aged beers, some of which take years to ferment and all of which call for expert-level cicerone experience,” says Justin.
The technical and machined equipment of a brewery is particularly sensitive to the elements and incidental contamination of the product. Therefore, ensuring careful considerations are made when selecting food-safe oils for brewing equipment is paramount for Justin and his team.
CBC State Sales Manager Leon Stefanec, is attuned to the needs of new businesses stepping up to contend with the highly competitive and world-renowned food and beverage sector in Melbourne.
“From an industrial standpoint, the brewing industry presents some unique challenges for CBC staff to address,” says Leon. “A highly specialised environment requires specialised solutions.” Which is what lead Leon to suggest the INOX NSF-H1 certified food-graded range to Justin and the team at Deeds Brewery.
