Heroes and Villains Inspiration

Heroes and Villains was borne out of the founder, Shannon’s desire to create his own path after decades in corporate life, and a love of great beer.

As a youth he was highly involved in the Perth punk scene and was inspired by UK legends like Crass and Conflict to embark on a journey of critical thinking. Of questioning the ways of the average. It’s a long story, but a short page.

As a brewery, we are inspired by independent thought; by those who see the constraints of society and choose their own path regardless of the challenges. We take our attitude and our aesthetic from art, rock and graphic novels.

Humble Beginnings

2018 – 2020:
Some journeys should not be taken alone. Heroes and Villains is the story of an ambitious plan, and friends and family who joined together to build a dream. In a small 100m2 space in the back of a shed at Oakover winery we made the Swan Valley our home for 2 years from 2018. In September 2019 we launched our range of Heroes into the Perth market with great response.

2020 – Present:
We have been growing, developing our beer and the brand ready to take on new projects and share our beer-love with broader audiences. So, in 2020, we embraced the next stage of our journey with a 350m2 brewery and tap room is Osborne Park and have expanded our range and the brewery itself to develop award-winning beers.

The most exciting part is what comes next..!
