Tribe's Smeaton Grange brewery up for sale

Tribe has moved to our new digs in Goulburn, and we now have the bitter-sweet task of putting Smeaton Grange, the birthplace of our brewing journey into the hands of its next brewers.

We are seeking submissions of interest in the purchase of our original brewery in its entire, working order. Our brewers have produced 10’s of millions of litres in the facility, have brewed for well over 100 different brands and delivered over 400 different beers, ciders, RTD’s, soft drinks and well, whatever innovators could cook up since taking over in 2012.

We think it would be great to find an up and coming brewery to pass the torch to, that can love the beer made there just as much as we did. The brewery is a full working brewery, with integrated packaging and keg lines ready for immediate occupation and utilisation.

Please submit your interest and/or schedule an inspection with Albert Fam at the following details:

  • 0431 753 223

Should Tribe not find a suitable suitor for our beloved brewery, we will hold an auction on site in December for all of the equipment that will not make its way into our new facility in Goulburn.

See the following pages for information on the facility.
