The Australian Marine Conservation Society is a national environmental charity with a proud record of protecting Australia's national icon, the Great Barrier Reef, including advocating for its Marine National Park status and World Heritage listing.


Great Barrier Beer and the partnership between The Good Beer Co. and the Australian Marine Conservation Society is a 2018 finalist in the prestigious Banskia Sustainability Foundation Minister's for the Environment's Award in Australia.

The judges were impressed by the beer's innovative approach to raising awareness of the plight of Australia's national icon.

Great Barrier Beer is a brilliant and simple way to get our important message out there and to raise funds for our work to protect the Great Barrier Reef. As we all know, our Reef needs all our help right now. Every time someone drinks a Great Barrier Beer they are raising a glass to a better future for our Reef.
