The ever-popular Deeds Brewing finally has a taproom and tasting bar of its own, located in the same 2600-square-metre former mechanics workshop its brewery calls home. With room for 150 people across a ground floor and booth-filled mezzanine level, the lofty, mod-industrial space offers views of the brewing equipment and fermentation tanks from wherever you sit.

A 28-tap lineup focuses on Deeds' own house creations, pouring year-round sips like the XPA (from $5.5) and Juice Train NEIPA (from $8) alongside a rotation of seasonal and limited-edition brews. The beers are backed by a curation of local wine, Aussie spirits and cocktails, plus brewery tours and tastings will also be on offer.

A clever yet approachable menu from Head Chef Paul Kasten (Stomping Ground, Host Dining) incorporates both beer and classic beer ingredients throughout. Expect bites like focaccia teamed with malt butter, hop-cured salmon with creme fraiche and Geraldton wax, and brussels sprouts elevated with pale malt and onion cream. Blue Grenadier might be coated in a Deeds draught batter and matched with malt vinegar, while a wagyu MS9+ blade fillet comes served alongside an ale glaze and green chilli harissa. And if dessert's on the cards, prepare to be won over by the likes of a stout brownie or a malted whipped cheesecake with caramelised puff pastry. Paired with a serve of Deeds' latest dark, malty creation, of course.
