“At M8 Beer, we are passionate about making fresh, easy to drink craft beer with an Aussie twist.”

Why Baltimore?  Why Aussie beer?

​​Jeff grew up on the sunny Gold Coast in Australia and always loved beer, especially craft beer with flavor! When he came to Baltimore in 1999 to play professional squash, Jeff fell in love with the town.  


After living back on the Gold Coast for 20 years, when the chance to start a brewery back in Baltimore presented itself, he jumped like a kangaroo! 

What is Aussie style beer?

Like Australia itself, Aussie beer is a melting pot of flavors and influences from around the world.  Crisp pilsners, full flavor lagers, and malty stouts and bitters are just some of the styles brought to Australia from European settlers and beloved by generations of Aussies.

The craft beer scene around the world has a love for hoppy pale ales and Australia is no different.  Australia and New Zealand have some of the most sought after hop varietals in the world for brewing the king of pale ales, the IPA.

The common thread among all of these diverse styles is their moderate ABV and easy drinking style best enjoyed cold and with your best mates.
