Philter Brewing, Marrickville

SYDNEY | Philter Brewing burst into the craft beer scene in 2017, when their debut XPA won Champion Pale Ale at the 2017 Craft Beer Awards, and have been full steam ahead ever since. The brewery was born out of a backyard chat between Marrickville mates and neighbours, Mick, Neil and Stef Constantoulas. The trio knew beer and branding, but didn’t have a brewer. When they met Sam Füss, one of Australia’s first female brewers with more than 16 years experience, it all fell into place.

Their philosophy is simple. sessionable, easy drinking core range favourites and limited releases. Quality ingredients, good times, and accessibility. The fun and unique branding, which plays into a retro 1980s Australiana vibe sums up the brand’s ethos well.

For the first few years, Philter brewed gypsy until they opened their own brewery and taproom in former 1960s yoghurt factory in August 2020. The space retains nods to the building’s 1960s bones, and of course channels that 1980s branding. It’s a fun spot, perfect for enjoying drinks with friends.

On tap you’ll find the core range, along with a rotating selection of seasonal and limited releases. There’s also a fridge and merch counter if you’re looking for something to take away. Tasting paddles are available if you want to try a few things. The award winning 4.2% ABV XPA is a must. Also try the 8.0% ABV Double Red, packed with passionfruit, melon, citrus and berry notes.

For food it’s tasty burgers and pizzas, along with a few other things like fish tacos, salads, and dips. The space is small and can get busy, so while bookings aren’t essential it’s recommended if you’ve got a bit of a group going.

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.
