Range Brewing, Abbotsford

MELBOURNE | Since launching a few years ago in Queensland, Range Brewing has fast become one of Australia’s most highly regarded breweries. Their beers are highly sought after, with limited releases often selling out withing minutes. Prior to 2020, their beers weren’t the easiest to get down in Melbourne, but with the opening of the Abbotsford taproom, things changed.

Step inside and the first thing you notice is that Range doesn’t look like your typical brewpub. Unlike the usual exposed brick, warehouse style format that many breweries favour, Range goes for more of a Scandinavian cafe type look. Lots of white, clean lines, timber, and natural light. If you didn’t know it was a brewery, you’d think it was a cafe.

There’s 12 beers on tap – a rotating selection of the latest beers shipped down from Brisbane twice a week. There’s also a fridge full of the latest release cans to enjoy on site or to take away. A diverse selection of beers with a particular emphasis on the hazy IPAs that Range has become known for. If you’re not a beer drinker, there’s a small selection of quality local wines and spirits.

There’s no kitchen on site, but you can order in food from any number of the great restaurants in the area, offering a diverse range of cuisines.

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.
