Why Join Heaps Normal?

Work with a diverse, fun, highly motivated team brought together by the simple belief that there are some things too good to be wasted. We’re changing drinking culture by trading the standard drink for a new drink standard and having a bloody good time along the way.

We're committed to a policy of Equal Employment Opportunity. Your gender, your gods, your sex life, your skin colour or your bigshot uncle don’t make a difference here. Heaps Normal is a progressive and open-minded meritocracy. If you’re smart and good at what you do, come as you are.

A bit about us

Heaps Normal is an independent, non-alcoholic Australian beer company, brewing real beer without the hangover. Whether you’re taking a night off or ditching the booze for life, we reckon it’s time to talk about something more the epic stuff you’re doing instead of getting wasted. Whether it’s burning the midnight oil or burning up the dancefloor, let’s challenge ourselves to tell better stories. Come and be part of changing our drinking culture, with the best non-alcoholic beer in Australia (Country Winner at 2021 World Beer Awards & Interbrand’s 2021 Breakthrough Brand).

“If there was a standout winner in the non-alcoholic beers of 2020 it would be this extra pale ale.” Samantha Payne, The Guardian

“[Heaps Normal] make sobriety seem genuinely cool and inviting, without being preachy. In this country, no one has ever done that with a beer.” Nick Connellan, Broadsheet
