Here's what our clients have to say about Rockstar Brewer Academy....

About Our Founder

My name is Steve Henderson.

You can call me Hendo.

I’ve been a professional brewer for nearly a decade, and over the course of my career, I’ve discovered a passion for quality management and process improvement. From my earliest days as a home brewer, I always had access to amazing information when it came to ingredients, recipe development, and the basics of making beer. But it wasn’t until I spent time managing breweries that I discovered how much there was to learn when it came to ensuring consistency, getting the most out of the kit and the ingredients every single time.

This commitment to quality and ongoing education has paid dividends. My beers have medalled seven times at the Australian International Beer Awards, the largest beer competition in the Southern Hemisphere, and I also won the AIBA Champion Gypsy Brewer trophy in 2016. With my guidance, Victoria’s Brownstone Microbrewery won the AIBA trophy for Best New Exhibitor in 2018.

My career has included stints at Prickly Moses, Southern Bay Brewing, and Stone and Wood, as well as running my own BrewCult label from 2013 to 2017. I’ve also confidentially advised a number of breweries on process improvement and recipe development.

I have a Graduate Certificate of Brewing from Federation University, I’m a Cicerone Certified Beer Server and an International Beer Judge.
