The Catchment Brewing Co
The West End craft brewery sprawls over two levels and boasts two laneways.
Every corner of the city seems to house a craft beer bar, and a growing number make their own tasty tipples on the premises. West End watering hole The Catchment Brewing Co. fits both categories, serving ice-cold pints not only poured fresh from the keg, but also brewed on site.
Indeed, it should be smiles all round at the Boundary Street venue, which boasts two levels and two laneway hangout areas within its renovated art deco confines. The relaxed atmosphere is enough to make patrons want to stay all day — and that's before you get to the menus.
The food offering features favourite gastropub fare, such as pizzas, small snacks to share and mains such as wagyu rump, tempura chicken, duck breast and swordfish — aka the ideal meals to line the stomach with. On the drinks side, wine gets plenty of attention, with 25 drops to choose from.
Of course, then there's the beer. Local and international brews sit alongside Catchment's in-house Bright Ale, Pale Select Ale and The 500 IPA, as well as its special releases. Pick one of the ales if you like your beer with a fruity flavour, and go for the IPA if you're just mad about hops.
