Welcome to Brunswick

The inner north's fairy-lit, dog-friendly food truck park and beer garden.

After creating an instant hit with inner-north food truck park Welcome to Thornbury, the 100 Burgers Group backed it up for round two. The team continued its northside foray back in 2021 with a venture in collaboration with famed Sydney-based brewery 4 Pines. Together, the duo opened a 450-person food precinct, brewery and beer garden in Brunswick.

Located on Sydney Road, Welcome to Brunswick is a little smaller than its Northcote sibling indoors, but outside it boasts a much roomier, park-like outdoor zone, decked out with loads of lush greenery, paintings by local artists and a solid spread of both sunny and shaded areas. And yes, it's all as dog-friendly as it sounds.

The food offering comes courtesy of a rotating food truck lineup, with up to four vendors on-site each night. Expect regular appearances from favourites like Mr Burger, The Bao Project, Woking Amazing, Sparrow's Philly Cheesesteaks and Nem n Nem, all backed by dishes from The Hall next door — that you can also order from.

Meanwhile, the beer lineup features entirely 4 Pines beers, brewed in the on-site brewery. Signatures like the summer ale, pale ale, pacific ale and kolsch star alongside the brewery's seasonal Keller Door releases, that might include the likes of a Margarita Gose and the El Dorado IPA.

An environmentally sensitive design by Breathe Architects is heavy on the recycled and reclaimed materials, including kegs that've been up-cycled into stools. Welcome to Brunswick's commitment to sustainability also includes composting 100 percent of its organic waste (including all of its bowls and plates) and using solar panels, with a long-term aim of producing all of its energy on-site.
