Molly Rose

Molly Rose Brewery is all about the perfect balance in their great brews— a little bit salty, a little bit fruity, and plenty of good energy. The non-alcoholic range is, as the can says, ‘sublime’— strawberry and lime? Hell yes. Citrus IPA? Citra citra, yes please!

From their classic brews to every sip, Nic Sandery’s vision and the values from his grandmothers, Molly and Rose, shine through.

Even better, if you’re in their neighbourhood, they’re open Wednesdays through Sundays. Swing by for a cold one and some seriously good food— with plenty of plant-based options for your vegan mates. Personally, we can’t get past the spicy corn fried rice with salted egg yolk or the fried calamari with red nahm jim and black lime salt.

Free Time

Love the name, which is precisely what this great non alc from Bridge Road Brewers gives you – free time – without a hangover you can pretty much up your game, and spend your free time, well, doing pretty much anything you want to. A pale ale with all the flavour but none of the alcohol? Yes please. Free Time has charmed us with its vibrant hop aroma, low bitterness, and clean finish.

Founded by Ben Kraus in 2000, the brewery has evolved from a shed to a bustling brewery employing 40 staff. With a flagship taproom in the drop dead gorgeous location of Beechworth and an outpost in East Brunswick – with a slick diner to boot – Bridge Road’s beers span from Bermagui to Bangkok, perfectly embodying the values of independence and quality.
