Award-winning beer brand Urban Alley now has a sibling for its OG Docklands brewery, opening this $5 million brewpub in Wantirna's Knox Westfield Ozone precinct in May 2022.

Spread over 1000 square metres and multiple levels, Urban Alley Brewery Knox not only features an array of indoor and outdoor spaces, but hosts a dedicated gin distillery from renowned Tassie producer Dasher + Fisher. It's a destination for beer-sipping, gin-appreciation, pub-style dining and live entertainment, with capacity for a hefty 750 people.

The bar showcases Urban Alley's award-winning range, pouring core creations like the Urban Lager ($7/13) and Slapshot Aussie-style pale ale ($7/13) alongside a rotation of limited releases. There's even a beer crafted in honour of the new digs, dubbed the Ozone Pacific Ale ($7/13).

Meanwhile, gin aficionados can get acquainted with a range of internationally-awarded Dasher + Fisher creations, also made on site. And if you've got a thing for both drops, try the Plummy Brew ($22) — a special-release cocktail crafted on both beer and the distillery's Ocean Gin.

To match, the kitchen serves a contemporary take on classic pub fare — like the Korean fried chicken burger with 'sinner' sauce ($26), slow-cooked lamb shanks ($35), and cous cous-crusted salmon with a lemon and pea risotto ($32). Fish and chips are done in an Urban Lager batter ($27), and there's a solid lineup of pizzas and snacks, too.

You'll also find a diverse program of happenings, ranging from Tuesday night trivia, to Saturday DJ sets and acoustic sessions every Sunday afternoon.
