Chances are you've encountered Akasha's beers in several high-profile craft beer establishments in Sydney. The generally hop-forward, light-bodied styles are easily accessible to drinkers despite the label's aggressive hop regime and high ABVs.

Akasha began with owner Dave Padden gypsy brewing back in 2015; however, within a matter of months, he had acquired the warehouse that is now the brewery, fitted it out and begun brewing beers on site — quite a feat in the small business game.

This is a hop-head's dream come true, featuring rustic wooden furniture set up among the sparkling stainless steel brewing equipment and pouring from twelve taps. Grab one of Akasha's many banging beers and have a game of pool at what was dubbed, at 2018's Sydney Beer Week Awards, "Best Brewery Cellar Door in Sydney".

It has a rotating roster of food truck vendors on site to dish up some, tasty feeds. Think hamburgers, hotdogs or kebabs to pair with your favourite Akasaha brew. The space is also available for functions, so start planning your next get-together and head on down to Akasha.
