With an ever-changing brew list, this Newstead newcomer takes seasonality very seriously.
Inspired by European craft beer vibes and co-founded by Gerard Martin and Matt McIver, Range Brewing takes seasonality very seriously. It doesn't have a specific core range like most breweries do. Instead, its brews are ever-changing, depending on the season and available ingredients. Expect hoppy, dark and sour beers to dominate, all brewed with Californian-designed equipment. At the time of writing, its current list of beers reaches 55.
Located in Newstead, just a few blocks north of Gasworks, Range's warehouse-style taproom serves up whatever is pumping through the ten taps from Thursday–Sunday. The space has a Scandinavian-inspired fitout, which was designed and built by the Range crew. Think a beer hall with concrete-topped share tables, steel-based chairs and communal booths that seat 90, with space for 120 all up.
For food, Range slings sourdough pizzas from their onsite commercial kitchen. If you're keen to try something other than beer — however blasphemous that may be — the bar also offers wine, gin, whisky and soft drinks from all-Australian and independently-owned producers.
And don't forget that Range is within walking distance of Green Beacon Brewing and Newstead Brewing Co., making the suburb your new go-to for a weekend brewery crawl.
