Sample Brew

A minimalistic brew from West Melbourne

When you peer at a can or bottle of Sample Brew's yeasty beverages, you'll notice the minimalistic, sleek design. In fact, you can't miss it. That's how this West Melbourne-based brand packages its brews — and, more than that, it's how it approaches making them as well.

Across its pale ale, gold ale, lager and 3/4 IPA, Sample Brew is all about essential, natural ingredients (and additive- and preservative-free, too) that combine for a clean, refreshing, crisp taste. We'd call it a no-fuss beer, but that only applies to the flavour, not the brewing process.

Founded in 2014, Sample Brew has fallen under East 9th Brewing's umbrella since 2019 — and you can purchase its brews online via the latter's The Daily Liquor store.
