A fledgling Scottish marketing agency has completed a design project for two of Australia’s best-known craft breweries, Bridge Road Brewers and Doctor’s Orders Brewing.

Thirst, which began operations four months ago, has created bespoke labels for the two Aussie brewers.

The success comes just one month after the company rebranded the multi award‑winning Loch Ness Brewery, and a labelling deal for an exclusive “Champagne-style” BlossomGueuze beer by the Belgian brewer, Lindemans. The antipodean contract is for labelling a range of Berliner Weisse beers, with variations using raspberry, grapefruit and rhubarb.

Matt Burns, co-founder of Thirst with Chris Black, said: “It feels quite surreal to have designs we created in Glasgow now being seen in cities such as Brussels, Moscow, Copenhagen. Melbourne and Sydney, but we’re delighted.”

The business is based in the South Block arts hub in Glasgow’s Trongate.
