The Clifton Hill Brewpub

Clifton Hill Brewpub

A few months ago, a spy got in touch to tell us he had seen what could only be brewery tanks. Being craned over a wall close to his house in Clifton Hill. It turned out his eyes were not deceiving him! His local corner pub€“ was about to undergo a reinvention as the city’s latest brewpub. Besides, previously it is a rather more run-of-the-mill suburban Melbourne pub. Complete with live music venue to the rear and a TAB.

Today, the Clifton Hill Brewpub is up and running. With five of its own beers pouring through five of its 16, almost entirely craft, taps. Bolstering the suburb’s claim to be the craftiest in Australia. The owners of Mountain Goat, one of the brewers from Moon Dog, the man behind La Sirene and two members of the Good Beer Week team all calling it home. Not to mention the presence of quality venues such as The Terminus and the Royal Hotel Clifton Hill nearby.


Inevitable Change

The pub still hosts acoustic music in the front bar several times a week. Whilst, the live music venue at the rear has been turned into a large dining and function area. For the most part, the focus is now on quality drinking and quality food in a venue that has undergone a total refurbishment. A gentrification that reflects the transformation of Clifton Hill itself in recent years.

Change has been taking place in the Thirsty Camel bottleshop that is attached too. In fact, it was watching the rapid growth in popularity of craft beer within the bottleshop. Despite that once there was a single fridge. Now there is an entire wall of Australian and international craft beer with plans to expand further. Nevertheless, helping inspire the change within the main venue.
