Black Hops Recognised Again As One Of Australia’s Fastest Growing Companies

For the past 32 years respected business publication The Australian Financial Review (AFR) have published their Fast 100 and Fast Starters lists, in recognition of the fastest growing businesses and start ups in Australia over the previous 12 months.

The Fast 100 list recognises the growth of Australian standalone companies which started trading before July 1 2017 and recorded at least $5 million of revenue in 2021-22.

And following on from last year (when we made the Fast 100 list for the first time), we were stoked to once again finish on the top 100, coming in at #57 in this year’s honour roll of fastest growing Australian companies!

To meet the criteria for entry into the Fast 100 we needed to provide three full years of revenue data and we were then ranked according to the compound annual growth rate achieved over that period.

A big thanks to all of our customers, suppliers, investors and supporters for getting behind us and continuing to support what we do, you’re all a massive part of our success and we look forward to growing even more while continuing to make the best beer we can.

For those interested, the top ranked company in the AFR Fast 100 list this year was Naked Life Non-Alcoholic Spirits.
