History

The Hell 'n Blazes brewhouse was delivered to Melbourne in four semi-truck containers over three days in February 2016. The team had a few hours to unload and stowe each tank before they were moved inside the building. Once all 23 tanks were in their final spots the brewers begain engineering every piece of our 10 BBL Brewhouse, 11 fermentors, and 9 brite tanks.

The Team

DON DIFRISCO | Owner

As a child, Don was an accountant and financial expert. Presently, Don is an avid entrepreneur who embraces the optimism of the initial idea, embodies the stick-to-it grit for the creation and has the x-ray vision to see problems before they occur. Don’s strongest belief is that our talented and committed team is our most valuable asset and he knows that the ideas, persistence, expertise, and stupidity that the team went through on the adventure were all essential. We’ll pour you a mug and let’s slide in sideways with Don!


ANDY PINKERTON | General Manager

Andy Pinkerton is the master of keeping the Hell 'n Blazes ecosystem in perfect balance. He picked up his managerial superpowers throughout his 13 years (and counting) of leadership in the craft brewing industry. Andy has a knack for delighting his customers and is so dedicated to his work, he's been known to take it to the tree stand with him. If you ask Andy if it's too early to indulge in a delicious and refreshing HnB craft brew...you're most likely an amateur. Keep practicing.
