In a mammoth rescue operation, Dave and Andrew acquired their brewery from the now defunct Times Square Brewery, New York – New York. 2:00 AM on a winter’s morning in 2006 our trucks rumbled in. No city permits, oversized and 15 minutes apart. Yes we are brothers and yes we had our pants down.
Fortunately the one beat cop that stumbled across the operation was in a good mood – tipping his cap and wishing us luck. And with that, we jettisoned our established careers in aerospace and physio-therapy in pursuit of beer.
The doors to our Moorabbin based brewery were opened late 2007. Our family business is blessed with a small but passionate team of brewers, beer ambassadors and hospitality folks. Beer is fun – but we take it seriously. We look after each other – and our customers.
Our brewery has been recognized in recent times by industry peers through the Australian International Beer Awards:
2010 – Best Victorian Beer
2011 – Champion Barley wine
2011 – Best Victorian Beer
2012 – Runner up Champion Small Australian Brewery
2013 – Champion Small Australian Brewery
2013 – Best International Lager
We still occasionally have our pants down – and frequently rely on good luck, but we love the journey. We hope you enjoy the fruits of our labour. Stop by for a beer some time.
Andrew and Dave.
