Brewmanity Beer Co has received council approval for a stunning new brewery and tap house that is set to take the south-side beer trail to new heights.

The multi-level venue in Tope Street South Melbourne will include a ground floor 12 hectoliter brewery and tap house, as well as first floor beer hall, and rooftop terrace where beer lovers can drink in Melbourne’s breathtaking city skyline.

Brewmanity Co-founder, David Neitz, said, “It’s been a painstaking search to find a home. We launched our first beer in 2015, and we’ve been on a dedicated search for over 4 years. It’s nearly killed us, but we couldn’t be more excited to land where we have.

It’s a great little brewing facility for us to produce kegs and small batch cans, and the views on the rooftop are just outrageous. There’s no other way to describe it” Neitz said.

Co Founder, Jamie Fox lives in the South and is excited by the prospect of making an impact in his local area.

“The indie beer scene isn’t as well represented South of the city, so we feel a real sense of excitement that we can play a role in introducing more and more people to Independent beer. We have our eyes on a new head brewer that we will announce as we get closer to the launch date, and we cant wait to finally start releasing more one off and seasonal beers when the brewery is up and running”, Fox said.

Along with the new brewery comes a new shareholder too, Sam Tresise, owner of the adjacent Bells Hotel, will be the overseer of hospitality at the new Brewmanity Brewery.

Tresise recalled that, “Billy Bell was brewing beer in house at Bells Hotel around the time Redback and the Geebung launched their brew pubs, but all of those guys were ahead of their time. While I’m a publican, not a brewer, I’ve always had a dream that one day we could bring brewing back to South Melbourne”.

More details of the build schedule will follow, but the Brewmanity team aim to open their brewery doors in February 2022.
