The 120-cap open-plan space features 14 beers on tap and a 10 hectolitre, three vessel beer system housed in a venue designed with peak guest comfortability in mind.
Earlier this year Curly Lewis burst into Bondi as the suburbs first brewery & bar, and this month in another suburb first, Brookvale welcomes an all-new taproom and restaurant from Freshwater Brewing.
Founded by a group of industry mates, Freshwater Brewing launched their first beer, Freshie Pils, at the end of July 2021 with a focus on lagers and crisp easy drinking beers reflecting the uncomplicated and easygoing vibe of Freshwater.
Setting themselves apart from the craft world, Freshwater Brewing Co’s ethos is ‘They’re not craft, they’re chill’, and the taproom and restaurant echo this sentiment pulling away from the traditional ‘blokey’ craft beer crowd. Instead, FBC are consciously injecting some laid-back Freshie vibes into the industrial Brookie neighbourhood with a bright, comfortable and inviting space for all.
Freshwater Brewing will be the first brewery in Brookvale with a state-of-the-art in-house kitchen offering a full restaurant menu designed by Michelin trained Executive Chef, Daniel Wilson. The food is ‘relaxed backyard meets beachside bliss’ showcasing iconic Aussie crowd-pleasers like BBQ prawn skewers, Swallow rock pork sausage rolls with cumin, harissa and fennel mayo, and an epic fish finger sandwich.
The drinks list covers something for everyone, featuring; Freshie Pils – the original Pils – a german style with new world European hops; Wedge Cerveza – a Mexican style corn lager, brewed for hot days with a little salty citrus zing; to a crisp, dry Secrets Hazy Pale – an Aussie style hazy pale with big citrus and tropical notes.
Freshwater Brewing Co’s vision is to get people excited about ordering a drink at the bar and not be intimidated by a confusing beverage menu. Whether that’s a Pet Nat, a non alcoholic, a spritz or just a beer that tastes like beer, Freshie will find something you’ll love and want to come back for.
Hop over to the new venue at 4 Powells Road, Wednesday – Sunday. More info here.
