Rock Brewing Company’s (A 5th and 6th Generation Sydney Craft Brewery) has set up shop out in Alexandria and the new brewery is located in a fairly generi business park and you get to visit a brewery bar when you drop in for beers and eats. We liked this. Its going to be on the “circuit”. Something different for your after work jaunts.
Its a high volume warehouse space and there’s a collective of furniture placed around the venue. That’s the kitchen to the left and they’ve had a busy day with lots of stuff selling out.
Rocks Brewing Co also open early and you can actually come and grab breakfast and some choice vella nero coffee.
Adjoining where we sat, sat these jars with the core ingredients that went into the brew. There’s hops and malts and you can open the jars to smell them.
Large brewing tanks
Left is the Vella Nero Coffee and the right is a Governor Red Ale. We know the ladies at Vella Nero that supply the beans and it was their instagram that put us onto this venue.
A 5 beer sampler paddle was $10 and a nice way to try all the beers they had (There’s a cider in there too). We enjoyed most of the drinks.
A pulled pork burger and the ginormous stopper burger.
Rock’s brewing’s pulled pork burger was pretty good and priced well.
Ended up with their big stopper burger and its so big, it came with 2 pots of ketchup and was probably best shared. Its quite good (succulent, tasty) but very challenging to finish.
Its in an industrial estate, you can get beer. And the food’s also rather good – it should be noted you can come in the day and have breakfast too. We dug this. One for the diary guys. They also do brewery tours for $25 and beer aficionados will appreciate this – not bad considering you get 5 beers (paddle), 5 canapes – so its about $12 for the tour all up.
