MELBOURNE | Homebrewers Anthony Dinoto and Travis Nott founded Bonehead Brewing in 2016, and in 2018 opened their 80 person capacity brewery and taproom. The core range focuses on accessible beers that locals enjoy, while the limited releases see the brewery brewing more experimental beers.
Across the brewery’s 12 taps you’ll find their core range, along with limited, seasonal, and micro-batch releases. The Prickled Pink, a 5.0% ABV sour made using prickly pears is unique and tasty. If it’s not on when you visit, try the Half Wit Hero, the base Belgian Witbier that the Prickled Pink is based on. The Sweet Pea, a 4.8% ABV Dark Lager, is also a great drop.
There’s no kitchen on site, but you can bring in food from local restaurants, and food trucks which occasionally set up at the front.
As for where that name came from, it’s a funny story. The brewery was originally meant to be called Scoundrel Brewing, but the name had actually already been trademarked. A minor legal dispute followed, with Dinoto and Nott realising they’d made a ‘bonehead’ move in failing to do the proper IP research.
