BRADDON BREW PUB

After opening its doors in 2014 and being awarded 'Best New Venue' at the 2015 AHA (ACT) awards, BentSpoke has continued to move onward and upward in the Canberra beer and bar scene.

At the Braddon brewpub you will find 18 varieties of beer and cider available at any one time, all brewed on premise. A wide range of beer styles are made by our award-winning head brewer, as well as hand crushed apple cider, and gluten-friendly ginger beer, all on full display so you can watch the brew team at work while you sample a selection of brews by the pint or in our iconic sample bars.

Brews are available to purchase both over the bar and to take-away in our custom-made two-litre, insulated 'Travellers'.

A modern take on the classic pub menu features dishes which incorporate beer, brewing ingredients and highlight great local produce.

The Innovator

The Innovator was brewed with a natural yeast propagated out of the air here in Canberra, pear juice that claims to prevent hangovers, crickets and a dried black soldier fly larvae. The naturally occurring starches and proteins found in the crickets and soldier fly larvae and converted to sugar during the brewing process, reducing the amount of barley malt needed in a traditional brew.

TESTIMONIALS
  • Adelaide have nothing like this, I've never seen such a place. This place is amazing. The food, great beers and the staff are fantastic, some of the Adelaide boys are coming up this weekend and this place is the first cab off the rank for Friday and Saturday. This is by far my most favourite place and I suggest everyone get on it.

    Emma Cox, Facebook Review, 6 January 2018
  • This was a great find, and located very near to our hotel. It had a super atmosphere, the staff were very patient in explaining all the beer on tap (my husband thought the beer selection was superb, and he enjoyed the names they were given), and we enjoyed a very good meal here as well. I had an Australian Cheese plate, and my husband had Grilled Sardines on Toast with Potato Salad (as well as a beer paddle). We really enjoyed our time at BentSpoke, our only regret was we didn't have enough days in Canberra to go back!

    ToTravelIsBrilliant - TripAdvisor review, April 2017
  • BentSpoke truly do make the best beer I've ever had, there is something to cater to everyone. The bar staff are extremely knowledgeable so just walk up and tell them what you usually like to drink, or for a completely new experience try what's brewing in the hopinator. 10 out of 5 stars.

    Giles Moxom, Facebook review, Jan 22 2016
  • 5 star The best brewpub I've been to in Australia. I met Richard the owner/brewer and he couldn't have been any nicer. He spent time answering all my questions and really making us feel welcome. This is a great brewery with great people and an awesome culture. Best of all the beer was excellent with a huge variety - 18 taps! There was also a really nice cider and a deceptively tasty low alcohol beer. I recommend this place to anyone and everyone.
