In the surf coast town of Torquay, 500 metres from the beach – we get to brew beer. Our brewery is located on Bell Street and we’ve created a space out the front, for you to come and taste some quality beers and catch up with your friends and family. The beer is served in serving tanks and kegs about 5 metres from where it’s brewed and you’ll see the Brew Team doing their thing out the back. But don’t worry, if you don’t love good beer as much as we do, we’ve got an epic local wine and craft spirit list as well.

    Great food but the service is average. Had to place our order and pay via an app. One dish arrived before our drinks and after about 10 minutes, the remaining 5 dishes arrived over a few minutes. Table service with staff consisted of being seated and the delivery of our meals/drinks. Great food but average service for something which cost around $200 for six people with robotic service. Could really work on their atmosphere which isn’t much better than McDonalds. This place has so much to offer…

    Service, food and beverages were all 10/10, we love when eateries have the option to order and pay via the app, eliminated time away from the table from the loved ones we were meeting that we hadn't seen in a long time and meant we could reorder drinks fast and easy. Wait times were very small considering it was Mothers day Sunday. The whole team working on the floor were friendly, made the experience all the more enjoyable. Will absolutely be returning and soon hopefully!

    The young man who looked after us was polite, professional and attentive. We enjoyed the mac and cheese croquettes, southern fried chicken and grilled prawns pizza alongside the special release Easter beer which was a choc berry dark ale. We had a great time and we will come back soon.

    Changed our booking to earlier time without fuss. Selection of food is very impressive and extensive for a brewery bar. Food great, although all arrived together so would do two orders next time. Beers, great range and excellent drinking.

    Not great being served half the meals so far apart from each other, especially with small children… sometimes young staff treat young families like dirt on there shoes, kind of feel like we are a inconvenience for them.

    Highly recommend this place! Due to a technical issue, our order didn't print so we had to wait longer than expected for our meals. Not only did the staff apologise profusely, they gave us a free drink each and then surprised us with a free dessert, which was delicious! All the food was wonderful, as were the beers and ciders we sampled.

    It is a nice place, the food is ok but rather expensive. The service was poor and the staff not very friendly. They wanted us out ASAP, even before our booking was over. I used to be better a couple of years ago.

    Excellent environment and service. Always a joy to come for a beer and be waited on by employees with a great attitude towards their customers. The only downside to my experience this time was the parma. Unfortunately the chicken itself turned out to be a little tough and difficult to eat. Besides that everything was awesome.

    Honestly, I would come here just for the beer, which is excellent. On the last couple of visits we've eaten too and the quality of food was way better than we expected from a tap house. It was still busy at the tail end of lunch and they apologised for being short on staff but the service was nothing less than excellent. Highly recommended.
