KAIJU! Beer & Pizza, Huntingdale

MELBOURNE | KAIJU! Beer & Pizza (formerly known as KAIJU! Cantina) is the home of Kaiju Brewing, housed in a converted warehouse in Huntingdale. Founded by brothers Callum and Nat Reeves in 2013, Kaiju spent almost a decade gypsy brewing their beers at other breweries before finally opening their own space in 2022.

It’s a bright, loud space, with a cheerful theme that matches the branding that long-term fans of Kaiju will be familiar with. There’s colourful murals adorning the walls and 1970s evoking orange and red leather booths. An old Toyota Coaster helps to cement the fun, retro vibe. Large fans and an impressive ceiling heating system help to keep the space comfortable no matter the temperature outside.

Hop-forward beers have always been a hallmark of Kaiju, and across their 16 taps you’ll find the classics like Krush, a tropical and fruity Pale Ale, and Metamorphosis, a malty and hoppy West Coast IPA. There’s also limited beers like the ‘anything goes’ Mutation series, and other interesting creations.

If beer’s not your thing, there’s also cider on tap, as well as a nice selection of premium local spirits, cocktails, wines, and non-alcoholic options. A fridge to the side of the bar is filled with can that you can purchase to go.

To the rear of the space, you’ll find the open kitchen where Neapolitan-style pizzas are cooked in a state-of-the-art pizza oven. There’s traditional options like the Margherita, and Capricciosa, along with fun options like a cheeseburger pizza, and BBQ chicken. There’s also a few sides on offer like fries, fried calamari, and ice cream.
