Meet OUR TEAM
PHILL DEMPSTER (The one on the left) - OWNER & HEAD BREWER - Phill brewed his first batch of kit beer at the ripe old age of 17, shame he had to wait a whole year to taste it! Several years ago he built a 50 litre all grain system, and that was when the real passion for brewing started, and luckily for us, he took the hobby to an obsession.
With a successful background in the logistics field, along with more recent experience working the the dairy manufacturing industry, Phill brings many valuable skills to his role at the Burra Brewing Co.
Phill is passionate about brewing quality beer for the local community and tourists alike. He is excited to be bringing our unique brews to you, the customer. His favourite style of beer is a 'hoppy' pale ale.
ANTHONY DEMPSTER (The one on the right) - OWNER - Several years of living and traveling throughout Europe have cemented Anthony's love of beer. It was during this time he discovered the huge range of beer available, and became an enthusiastic consumer of independently produced craft beer.
Anthony is the owner of an engineering and sheet metal business. This along with his many years of experience working in local pubs, as a cook and behind the bar serve him well to enter into the role of brewery owner.
Anthony is eager to bring the great taste of our beer to fellow beer lovers. He's hoping to convert a few non-beer drinkers as well. He favourite type of beer is a German dunkel (dark) style of beer.
LUKE JONES (Centre stage) - OWNER - Luke has lived and travelled in Europe, and enjoyed sampling the many different styles of beer Europe has to offer. He loves nothing more than having a beer with mates don't tell his wife we said that!)
Luke has a background as a successful financial controller for several large hotel groups. More recently, he has been developing his career as a financial advisor. His vast knowledge of this field has made him an integral part of both the establishment and the day to day running of the brewery.
Luke is looking forward to sharing our quality craft beer with you. His favourite style of beer is a simple dark ale.
