The maker behind our delicious brews at Sparkke at the Whitmore, Carla Naismith, is as passionate about her craft as she is about creating social change.
An enthusiastic craft indie beer nerd, Carla’s interest in the beer space took a professional turn in 2017 while working at The Port Admiral. After spending months researching different beers (and by research, we definitely mean tasting), Carla secured her first role with local brewing company, Sweet Amber Brewing, where her passion for making was free to ignite. Three years on she plays an integral part in all things brewing at Sparkke at the Whitmore, calling the pink floored nano-brewery her home away from home.
You can frequently find her on Australia’s first pink floored nano-brewery in Sparkke at the Whitmore.
We are sharers, dreamers and makers. We invite the world to join in our social enterprise. We see those on the margins, on the streets and in the dark. We will not forget the hungry or the lost. We open our arms to those in the world who believe in 'good'.
We are a part of a global movement, a ground swell, and an energy that is felt and shared. We pursue a social agenda that creates shared value and equity across our communities and the world.
PASSION FOR EXCELLENCE
We are passionate makers celebrating what is truly extraordinary across our eco-system and in our brewing homes. We are dedicated to doing it all better, doing it with joy and doing it sustainably.
We are unfiltered, straight up and energetically filled with authenticity. We are what we say on our can. We don’t take prisoners, but we hold our own and our friends and our community so near and dear that we will never back down from our cause.
We are unique in our outlook, expressive in our beliefs. We are not a demographic, psychographic, economic segment, we are global citizens tapped into individual causes that spark critical social change, ignite our beliefs and defy any logic or data.
Care for Each Other
Above all else be kind. We take care of each other, our community and our world. In a world where light often feels hard to find, we practice kindness and care for each other.
RAISE YOUR CAN AND PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN

Let's do it together in 2020.
We want to know how we can help you make a difference in the world in 2020.

We will fund and/or create partnerships or collaborations with successful applicants to generate up to $25,000 in support for a single initiative. We are looking for no less than five great projects – and conceivably more.
