Ballistic Beer Co. Springfield Central – Opening Soon
Attention all Ipswich-based fans of Salisbury craft-beer brewers Ballistic Beer Co. – the popular froth flingers are heading your way! Yesterday the brand officially announced the forthcoming opening of its third hospitality operation (after its initial brewery and West End Ballistic Alehouse and Kitchen) – a new brewery, bar and kitchen in Springfield Central. The new venue is currently taking shape, with the brew crew in the midst of refitting the old Springfield Central Tavern, just a short stroll from USQ’s campus. Ballistic’s beverage barons are going all in for the venture, establishing an 800-litre brewery inside the premises alongside a 350-seat venue that will include function spaces, a beer garden and a full bar pouring a mix of 18 beers, ranging from Ballistic’s own brews to other popular craft beers. The brewery will utilise various brew methods and unique ingredients to concoct a few different styles of beer, including a beer brewed especially for local residents – the Springfield Pilsner. Described as a crisp and and clean European pilsner, this beverage is being brewed with mostly Australian ingredients and will be available on tap and in cans for take-home consumption. Ballistic Beer Co.’s Springfield Central location is on track to open this October.
