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 early 2020.

First launched back in 2017, the gypsy brewery has become well-recognised for its throwback 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 Sauce, Wildflower, Grifter and Willie The Boatman. Yeah, it has turned into one massive brewery crawl indeed.

Despite its proximity, Constantoulas promises that the fit-out will differ from the other beer venues around town. Though no details have been released just yet, Constantoulas says the space will "live up to Philter's unique branding".

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. Oh, and they'll of course be slinging plenty of the fan-favourite XPA, too.

The Philter brewery and taproom will open on Sydenham Road, Marrickville in early 2020. Keep an eye on this space for updates.
