Ophidian Brewing Company(2009 to 2019)

There is a dreamtime legend that speaks of a mystical Blue Serpent, 'Gorronlolmi', in the ancient language and stories of the Aborigines from the deserts of Australia. The Blue Serpent was a protector of the land, it's people and the giver of life. To quench their thirst the Aborigines looked for a sign from the Blue Serpent to aid them in their search for the most valuable treasure of the desert, water.

Ophidian Brewing Company started as a small idea in a backyard shed on the out skirts of Perth, Western Australia. There, Brew Master Robert Craig brewed his first beer which was to become known as Blue Serpent..

After several years of brewing top quality ales and lagers for family and friends and perfecting his own recipes, he decided to open his own brewery in the small town of Naquera, Valencia. An abundant supply of exceptionally pure water and tranquil surroundings offer the perfect ambiance to continue brewing top quality ales and maintaining the ways of the Blue Serpent
