Housed in the previous Odd Culture Bottle Shop in Sydney’s Newtown, Spon is the group’s latest go-to for all things fermentation.

Spon carries the group’s much-loved focus on spontaneous fermentation with a range of by-the-glass wines, snacks, and other rare beverages to enjoy in-venue, takeaway, or order online.

“We loved having the bottle shop but we have wanted to evolve and expand the concept for a long time,” says Odd Culture Group CEO James Thorpe.

“The spirit of SPON is to make the inaccessible or esoteric into the easily consumed and understood and increase the level of interaction and knowledge sharing with our guests which is our favourite part.”

Spon’s snack offering comes from the kitchen team down the the road at Odd Culture Newtown and is designed to complement an array of tipples.

Some of the highlights include Spanish yellowfin tuna with capers and potato chips, plus a charcuterie offering with LP’s saucisson, cheeses, beer bread, and Odd Culture Newtown’s famous butter.

On the drinks front, Spon’s daily open-bottle list features 12 beverages with a combination of wines, large-format ales, and ciders which guests can enjoy by the glass.

The list changes daily and is curated by both staff and guests who are able to select drops from the bottle shop to open throughout the day.

The bottle shop selection is also available by the bottle with a small corkage fee, plus for takeaway, and online.

To celebrate the opening, Spon are offering half-price corkage, and $6 glasses of orange, chilled red, and pét-nat wines throughout August and September.

Along with snacks and drinks, Spon also sells a range of pantry items and merch from local names such as Angie’s Food, Ziggy’s, Fleetwood Macchiato, and Malfroy’s.

Spon is open daily and is located at 256 King Street, Newtown, NSW.
