About 4 Pines Brewing Company

4 Pines was born over a decade ago from a casual conversation between a father and son, post surf, who simply wanted an exceptional beer and options were limited. It presented the wider family an opportunity to do something together; to build a small brewpub, introduce others to an exceptional beer and brewpub experience they had never seen before, build a little community where all were welcome and make some friends along the way.

It was from these new friends at the brewpub that they learnt the heart and soul of the working and business world had long since been corrupted. The fun had died, daring to step outside of the norm was frowned upon and dollars had become the focus – at the expense of almost everything else.

4 Pines, on the other hand, was built on throwing convention out the window, using alternative methods to measure success and having fun while they did it. They learnt even the smallest of businesses can change the game and for them, it was about leading in and being known for employee culture, customer experience, innovation, environmental and social responsibility and exceptional beer. People seemed to like that and the little community grew and grew.

This innocent conversation that evolved into a brewpub became the foundation of a lifelong journey with family, friends and the community to restore the fun in people’s lives and forever challenge what the world imagines business should be. From here, they will keep on doing what they know best.

Our company-wide Save the Pines program and our B Corp journey, is our formal commitment to environmental and social responsibility. It's a testament to the honest work that our 4 Pines family has done since day one and we have tons of fun while we do it. We’re proud to be a part of the change happening in our industry, community, and world!

The Change We Seek®

It's all about where they are, who they're with and how much 4 Pines loves the world. It's about measuring success with the smiles on their faces, the taste of their beer and how well they can treat the planet so that the fun they have today is still on offer when they're old and grey.

What makes us a better company?
