Australian Venue Co. and multinational brewer BrewDog are gearing up to launch a mega bar in Sydney’s South Eveleigh later this year.

It marks the second venue to open under the partnership following the announcement of BrewDog Pentridge in Melbourne in June. 

Situated in the historic locomotive workshop, Brew Dog South Eveleigh is set to become the precinct’s newest drinking destination.

“The South Eveleigh precinct is now a thriving tech and innovation hub, a living museum of Australia’s Industrial Revolution and home to great public community spaces,” Mirvac’s Portfolio Manager John Fairbairn.

“BrewDog’s new venue is going to be the ultimate final addition to our heritage Locomotive Workshop, complementing the exciting offering of eateries and retail, which opened last year.”

Construction for the $3.2 million project began in August and is expected to accommodate 720 patrons inside and 190 outside across a spacious indoor dining area, bar and beer garden.

“We’re so excited to bring ‘The Dog’ to Sydney, the space is truly incredible; we’re thrilled to be part of the next chapter of the historic South Eveleigh precinct,” says Australian Venue Co. NSW State Manager Evan Gargaro.

“The huge beer garden is going to be a hit; we can’t wait to open this venue just in time for the Sydney summer.”

The venue will offer 40 brews on tap including an extensive selection of BrewDog draught beers in addition to guest beer tap takeovers and collaborations with local breweries.

Beverage options will encompass a range of non-alcoholic drinks, spirits, wines, cocktails and ciders.

50 per cent of the food offering will be plant-based, featuring a range of vegan and vegetarian options alongside burgers, pizzas and wings.

The venue is expected to create 40 new local jobs including front of house, back of house and management.
