The Brewery (Bells Beach Brewing, Geelong

GEELONG | Bells Beach Brewing has come a long was since founders Adam Smith and Jono Mostrop started home brewing on Victoria’s Surf Coast in 2012. They opened Bells Beach Brewing in Torquay in 2018, and in 2021 opened a Geelong Bar, ‘The Brewery‘. It’s located in Denny’s Place behind Beav’s Bar, in the space previously occupied by Blackman’s Brewery.

It’s an intimate space, inspired by the Surf Coast. Exposed red brick walls, exposed timber panels, communal beer tables and stools, booths, touches of greenery, and a mural from local impressionist landscape artist Andrew Middlehurst. At the front, there’s a courtyard with more tables and stools.

Drinks wise, it’s a selection of Bell Beach Brewing beers on tap, along with local spirits, wines, and non-alcoholic drinks. Between the taps and the fridges, you’ve got access to the entire Bells Beach Brewing range here. Try their ‘Addis Pale Ale’, an approachable, refreshing, 5.0% ABV Pale Ale. For something with more of a hop punch, check out the 6.0% ABV ‘Posso’s IPA’.

There’s no kitchen on site, but if you’re hungry, you can order in food from any of the tasty nearby eateries, like The Hot Chicken Project.

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.
