Happy New Year All!
We’ve been getting a lot of questions about when our brewery will be open; will it just be a brewery, or will it also be a taproom? The short answer is that we are opening a brewery, there is no taproom…. yet. Let me explain.
One of the main reasons we chose the position of 4 Paran Place Glen Iris was its proximity to train, tram and the south eastern freeway for the purposes of having happy drinkers visit with easy access to public transport.
We saw that the building had huge potential for a taproom, with a lot of vintage character, a saw tooth roof and old metal trusses . These beautiful features had been ignored by the car workshop that was there before us. So, in July 2016 we submitted a planning application for a brewery and taproom. Even though the application was supported by Council, we had objections. Residents felt uncomfortable with the idea of a taproom and brewery, particularly the taproom.
