About John Gibbs
John Gibbs is the Head Brewer and founding partner of Spinifex. He has created a successful range of native Australian botanicals infused craft beers that have been recognised with awards for all entries into the prestigious London Beer Competition in 2020 and 2021.
In 2017, Gibbs began developing beer recipes infusing native Australian botanical ingredients with the view to creating unique Australian style beers. John developed a range of unique Australian fusion beers, showcasing Australian native botanicals, that have the potential to significantly change the taste of Australia. In early 2020, John produced two native infused beers, a roasted Wattleseed Amber Ale and a Lemon Myrtle Summer Ale.
After sending samples to the 2020 London Beer Competition, Spinifex was awarded a silver medal for the Summer Ale and a bronze for the Amber Ale. Since then, John has produced more award-winning beers, having won awards in the 2021 London Beer Awards for the infused Ginger Beer, WA Pale Ale and Honey Myrtle Ale.
