On June 6, 2014, Champion Australian brewer Richard Watkins and co-founder Tracy Margrain opened the doors to their highly anticipated BrewPub in the heart of the Nation’s Capital. In its opening weekend, the BrewPub poured roughly 3,000 litres of beer and cider – and that was just the beginning. Eight years and over 1000 brews later, BentSpoke’s BrewPub continues to be the heart of the company’s rule bending philosophy.
On any given day the BrewPub is home to 26 different draught beers, cider and two hand-pumped beers – all brewed at the Braddon site. The mix of our core range brews with rotating limited release styles epitomizes the company’s tenet to ‘take the road less travelled’. Whether it’s utilising local hops and fruit or gathering yeast from space, there is a beer for everyone.
Sit down with a pint (or two) and soak up the atmosphere amongst the pub’s industrial but inviting décor, filled with dark wood and vibrant metal. You might find yourself chatting with a friendly staff member about their favourite brews or learning about the custom tap handles made by BentSpoke regular Peter Rogers. Gaze up to admire the chandeliers, welded from bike parts by Co-Founder Tracy Margrain and the Rat Patrol (a group of local bike builders) and you might even spot a can cemented into the ceiling.
BentSpoke’s kitchen bends the rules of the classic pub menu - whether it’s the Pigs Ear Burger, Fish Wings, Hops Salted Potatoes or Grain Crusted Hot Wings you’ll find a meal that incorporates both beer and brewing ingredients together with a focus on great local produce.
On your way out you can purchase your favourite beers to takeaway either in a can or in one of our 2 litre stainless steel ‘Travellers’.
