"For their winter 2016 release the Grifter Brewing Company hasn’t gone as dark as trends might dictate – it’s more like they saw black on the colour chart then took two steps forward, one across and landed on red ale.

The Horses Head is absolutely full of fruity hop character, but more of the crisp, citrus kind rather than juicy like a melon. There is bitterness but it’s a bit-part player, simply doing its job without really being a concern. What is more noticeable is the crystal and dark crystal malts which give a sharp sweetness that rounds off nicely and helps the beer finish quite dry – perhaps another way of saying it’s rather moreish.

At a shade under five percent ABV, Horses Head has the alcohol to flavour ratio ramped right up in favour of the latter. This is by no means a contemplative winter warmer – it’s more like a flamboyant autumn ale that arrived at the party a couple of months too late and is here for a good time, not a long time." - The Grifter Brewing Co.

Buy in-store, Click & Collect & Delivery

IN-STORE: if you live in Brisbane drop into one of our two awesome shops. You’ll find My Beer Dealer Caxton Street under our mothership Brewski – it’s one of the few drink-in bottle shops in Brisbane complete with 10 taps for growler and can fills. And My Beer Dealer Eagle Junction is in Clayfield in Brisbane’s north (right next to Eagle Junction train station) with a killer range of beers, wines and spirits.

ONLINE: Choose from our free Click & Collect service from either shop or we’ll package your order up and deliver it pretty much anywhere in Australia for $10 (for up to 20kg). If you’re in a major city your parcel will travel with Aus Post Wine Service.


Rest assured that when you order with us we'll turn any frown upside down in no time with full replacement, credit or refund.

Meet the Dealers

We’re Antoinette, Natasha, Matt and Simon. We’re good booze lovers just like you. We started our beery journey in 2013 when we opened the famous Brewski on Brisbane’s infamous Caxton Street. In 2018 we opened our first My Beer Dealer under Brewski, it’s one of the few drink-in bottle shops in Queensland and we’re super chuffed with it. 2020 was a big year for us, we launched our online store (you’re looking at it) and opened our second bricks ‘n mortar shop next to Eagle Junction station in Brisbane’s Clayfield (we’re super chuffed with it as well). Both of these have allowed us to complement our awesome beer range with our other passions of good wine and good spirits.

As we’re a small family run business we prefer to support other family businesses and small producers, ensuring that when you visit us it’s not the same old, same old. And by shopping with us we hope you get to feel good about supporting a whole heap of small businesses, just like we do. So if you do choose to buy through us, thank you from us and thank you from our family of suppliers (and thanks for reading this far, our copywriter is stoked).
