The inner west certainly has no shortage of breweries, but, in our opinion, you can't have too much of a good thing in one place. So, beer lovers will be happy to know that they'll soon be able to add another stop to their Marrickville brewery crawl, when Philter finally opens the doors to its very own brewbar along Sydenham Road come July.

First launched back in 2017, the gypsy brewery has become well-recognised for its retro tinnie branding and sessionable styles. It's led by one of Australia's first female brewers (and former Young Henrys head brewer) Samara Füss — who is, fittingly, a bit of a legend in the local beer scene — and Marrickville neighbours and beer lovers Michael Neil and Stefan Constantoulas.

Set in an old yoghurt factory opposite Wicks Park, the location is very well placed — it's just down the block from Batch and close walking distance to SauceWildflower, Grifter and Willie The Boatman. Yeah, it has turned into one massive brewery crawl indeed.

While the brewery and taproom are still a few weeks off, Philter has gifted craft beer fans with an early present in the form of a bottle shop. Opening in the new Marrickville site, it's selling cartons, four- and six-packs, squealers and growlers of the brand's signature brews, including its fan-favourite XPA, red ale, lager, IPA and seasonal stout.

 

Punters can also expect heaps more limited and seasonal releases from the brand going forward, with a 25-hectolitre brewery pumping out more Philter than ever before.

The Philter bottle shop is now open at 92–98 Sydenham Road, Marrickville. It's open from 3–7pm Friday, 12–6pm Saturday and 12–4pm Sunday. We'll let you know when the taproom and brewery open.
