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.
