Melbourne beer brand, Brewmanity, will open Melbourne’s first rooftop brewery bar in South Melbourne next month. The unique venue will throw open its doors on Thursday 14th March to reveal three floors of brewery and bar space with expansive terraces boasting uninterrupted city views.

Co-founded by AFL legend David Neitz, Brewmanity is a craft beer company that does good. Regularly raising money for charity, it is about Good Beer, Good Deeds and Good Times.

Brewmanity in South Melbourne is about to become the ultimate destination for craft beers, wines and cocktails!

A Three-Level Brewery & Bar Haven with Stunning City Views

Spread across three levels and hosting up to 400 guests, Brewmanity brewery and rooftop bar will feature 34 taps of masterfully crafted beer by head brewer Tim Miller.

The drinks list will also include local independent wines, spirits and cocktails so everyone can enjoy relaxing and socialising while soaking up the welcoming atmosphere of Brewmanity. Offering experiences for beer aficionados and casual drinkers alike, there will be plenty of opportunities to try something new and beer tasting paddles are sure to be popular.

The ground floor will house the industrial style Beer Hall, where patrons can witness the brewing process through the windows overlooking the new stainless-steel tanks of the brewery, while enjoying their favourite beers.

The good times will continue upstairs to the ‘Next Level’, featuring Victoria’s most unique brewery bar, with a vast terrace offering panoramic views of the city skyline and a further rooftop on the third level with more breathtaking views of the city and across South Melbourne.

In addition to the public areas that offer full accessibility and retractable weatherproof outdoor awnings – there is also a private room available for corporate meetings, get-togethers or private events, accommodating 8-16 people.

Brewmanity will also serve up a delicious food menu by chef Suman featuring sharing plates and bar bites to accompany the drinks. Various dietary needs will be catered too with a delectable range of vegan and gluten free options.



Brewmanity: More Than Just Beer

Brewmanity is more than just a brewery; it’s a Melbourne beer brand committed to doing good. Since its inception in 2015, Brewmanity has been dedicated to raising funds for Fight MND (Motor Neurone Disease) in support of David’s friend Neale Daniher, with contributions to date nearing $970,000.

As Brewmanity gets ready to open its doors, the team is also preparing for a significant fundraising initiative to support Fight MND’s 10th ‘Big Freeze at the G’ in June. Brewmanity will invite the community and industry partners to join in this noble cause.

This commitment to charity reflects the ethos of Brewmanity, a brand name that merges brewing with humanity.

How Did Brewmanity Begin?

It all started with a group of beer loving mates and a dream to start their own brewery. Then, with friend Neale Daniher suffering from Motor Neurone Disease, they imagined a world where every beer did a little good.

Inspired by a trip to Belgium in 2009 with its variety of beer styles and unique glassware, David Neitz embarked on a journey to create a beer experience that transcends the ordinary. Together with Jamie Fox, who played a key role in the pioneering days of craft beers, and mate Paul Hopgood, David launched Brewmanity in 2015.

Brewmanity focuses on using traditional beer styles infused with modern ingredients and techniques, offering a range from sours to saisons that appeal even to non-beer drinkers.

Brewmanity prides itself on its 21-day brewing process, emphasizing natural fermentation without additives. The team takes pride in carefully crafting and refining each beer style, pushing the boundaries of what excellent beer can be and the result is the highest quality and taste.

“We are so excited to be only weeks away from opening the doors to Brewmanity brewery and bar,” said co-founder David Neitz.

“This has been a project a long time in the making and we are thrilled that our beer will have a home that the public can enjoy. With three levels of drinking and dining in the Beer Hall and Next Level rooftop, the venue is a place for the community to gather and enjoy time together. And the unparalleled views of the city offer the most unique brewery experience I’ve seen in Victoria.

“We are proud with what we have achieved so far and there is so much more to come. We have proved that you can make a Good Beer that does Good Deeds and we hope to pour out the goodness for many years to come.”

Brewmanity Opening Events:

  • Sunday 17th March – Brewmanity will host a St Patrick’s Day event supporting the Jim Stynes Foundation
  • Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th March – guests will be getting revved up with big screens on the rooftop showing all the F1 Grand Prix action from nearby Albert Park

Melbourne can look forward to experiencing the excitement of the city’s first rooftop brewery bar and be a part of something bigger as the taste of exceptional beer, drinks and food are joined by the spirit of community.

Brewmanity opens on 14th March at 44-50 Tope Street, South Melbourne.
