BrewDog Pentridge

BrewDog Pentridge, the first bar of the partnership between Australia’s leading pub operator Australian Venue Co. (AVC) and one of the world’s largest craft beer bar operators BrewDog, is set to open within the walls of the iconic Melbourne prison on Friday 25th November.

Located within the historic E Division building at Pentridge Prison, BrewDog Pentridge has been a $3 million project and is set to become a go-to destination in Melbourne for craft beer lovers.  The restored interiors will offer a nod to the history of the site, while the sprawling beer garden will offer a modern and casual experience. 

BrewDog Pentridge will be spread across two levels, with indoor dining room and quiet den space on the ground floor, three function spaces on level 1, plus a relaxed outdoor beer garden with BrewDog container bar, bookable spaces and games area. The 500 capacity venue will be the place to be this summer, with 20 different craft beers on tap from session-strength pale ales and lagers to epic imperial stouts and sours, including the ‘BrewDog & Friends’ range of guest local breweries.

The mouthwatering food menu – featuring 50% plant based items – will satisfy every taste bud with weekly highlights including BrewDog’s signature, all-year-round specials, 2-4-1 Vegan Mondays and All You Can Eat Wings for $25 on Wing Wednesdays.

“Melburnians are ready for their first BrewDog,” said Australian Venue Co CEO Paul Waterson. “It’s going to be an unmissable craft beer destination, arriving just in time for a busy Melbourne summer.”

“We’re excited to see our first partnership with BrewDog come to life, and to open a venue in such a storied Melbourne location.”

BrewDog Pentridge will not only offer Melburnians a great new destination for drinks and good times, but has also created 77 new jobs across the venue.

AVC and BrewDog are preparing to open a second BrewDog site together in Sydney’s South Eveleigh precinct this summer.
