Local beer brand Curly Lewis will swing open the doors to its new brewery and bar on 19 August in Sydney’s Bondi.

Located on Campbell Parade, the 120-capacity venue will be the first-ever brewery experience to launch within the area.

The brand’s team Adam Richards, Oliver dos Remedios, Gareth Morton, Loren Morton, and Brewer Scotty Morgan all felt that there was “a gap in the market for beer-lovers in the eastern suburbs.”

“You have to go to the inner west or northern beaches for a brewery experience,” says Co-founder and Head of Brand Oli dos Remedios.

“So we wanted to change that and create a local brand and brewery in a location that has a lot of significance to us as founders.”

The brewery will produce two of its award- winning signature beers, the Curly Lewis Clean Cut Lager and Bondi Hazy Ale, alongside selzters and brews labeled ‘wildcards’ that make up a total of 20 taps.

Wildcards include a light sour called Salty Mermaid Gose, the Lay Day Red IPA and the Coffee Stout.

Guests can also expect food from Frank’s Deli’s Sammy Jakubiak and Ben Kelly, who have curated an offering of European snacks, share plates and sandwiches.

Snacks and share plates include Frank’s meatballs, croquettes, deli plate, deep-fried quail with fries and aioli, chargrilled prawns with Aleppo butter and a burnt basque cheesecake.

A selection of Frank’s Deli sandwiches will also be on offer and encompass a classic Reuben, Portuguese chicken and vegan mushroom toastie.

Curly Lewis is currently being served and sold at Bondi Beach Cellars, The Beach Road Hotel, Neighbourhood, Salty’s, Bondi Liquor Co, Bonditony’s and more.
