Worksmith News: Four Pillars x Worksmith Sponsored Membership

Since Worksmith Melbourne opened its doors we have received a huge amount of support from the industry. We have grown to 50 + members with a mix of people across the industry which include: wine, beer and spirit distributors, spirit producers, social media, graphic design, journalism and technology.

As our community grows with a diverse range of people, Worksmith, along with current member Four Pillars, would like to offer a one-off membership to an enterprising individual within the industry to help develop their ideas, offer feedback on their product or service and give them access to our community of industry professionals.

If you have a food, beverage or hospitality start-up and need help to make your idea a reality, fill out the form below!

Four Pillars was born just five years ago. It is now Australia’s number one craft spirit and is exported to over 20 countries around the world. Go for it.
