Deeds Brewing, Glen Iris

MELBOURNE | The new Deeds Brewing taproom has opened, after council and permit delays, then 2020, thwarted their multiple attempts to get this thing off the ground over the past few years. And it’s worth the wait.

The brewery has been around since 2012, when owners and beer importers Patrick Alé and Dave Milsten turned their hand to selling their own beers, as Quiet Deeds. Today, they’ve grown their reputation to become one of Melbourne’s best breweries, with head brewer Justin Corbitt making some brilliant drops. They’ve been brewing at this site since 2019, and all of the renovations look great. It’s a huge space, formerly home to an auto workshop, and there’s a lot on offer.

You can get the entire Deeds range here, from core range beers to limited and brewery only releases, and there’s a good selection of local wines, spirits, and cocktails for those who don’t like beer. They’ve also got a takeaway license and a full stocked fridge full of cans, and crowlers.

The food menu isn’t your typical pub/brewery food either. Head chef Paul Kasten uses ingredients from the brewing process where possible, to creat some tasty dishes. Think hop cured salmon ceviche with creme fraiche, fennel, and Geraldton wax, beer battered blue grenadier, fennel, celeriac, and malt vinegar, and smoked pork croquettes with honey mustard and pickles. It’s all very tasty, if admittedly somewhat on the pricey side.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
