ADELAIDE | Little Bang Brewing Company was started by video game developers Filip Kemp and Ryan Davidson, who used to homebrew before building a larger brewery in Fil’s Garage and birthing Little Bang in 2013. The experiment went well, their beers were well regarded and selling out fast, so they took the plunge and moved into brewing full time.
Before long, they’d outgrown the garage and moved into a bigger space, and then in 2018, they moved once more into the Stepney venue you can visit today. A garage brewery no more, Little Bang’s brewery and tap room is big. A 1000sqm warehouse with space for 290 people, large communal tables, old-school arcade machines, and a front courtyard.
Behind the bar you’ll find 24 rotating taps of both Little Bang and guest beers, a selection of local wines, and Little Bang’s own small batch gin. You can also purchase cans, bottles, and food to go, and get growlers refilled.
Tasting paddles are available, so you can work your way through the tap list. There’s the core range favourites along with seasonal and limited releases. Try the dank 6.5% ABV West Coast IPA, The Naked Objector, and the rich 6.0% ABV Black IPA, Scratchy Vinyl. The Undercover Fashion Police series of New England IPAs is always worth a go, and for one of the most sour beers you might have ever had, check out the 5.0% ABV citrus super sour, Face Inverter.
For food, it’s quality versions of your usual brewpub favourites – wings, burgers, loaded fries, and the like. There’s lots of vegan options on offer too.
Regular events occur throughout the week, including live music, quiz nights and art exhibitions, so it’s always a good time to pop in.
