Bright Brewery BRIGHT
BRIGHT Brewery has undergone multiple expansions in its 11year history. When opened in 2006 by Scott Brandon, his late wife Fiona Reddaway and their friends David and Julia Cocks, the brewery and adjoining bar was housed in two small tin sheds in the heart of Bright – where it remains. In 2012 Bright Brewery underwent substantial redevelopment to transform the facility into an environmentally considered, multipurpose venue with seating for more than 250 people. And in 2014 it added a stunning hop terrace, which has proved a winner as the most popular place in Bright to enjoy a drink and meal outdoors. The latest addition – a multi-million-dollar 1050-square metre brewhouse – will now see Bright Brewery produce more beer than before as the company looks to introduce its product to markets across Australia. Bright Brewery marketing manager James Davidson says it’s an exciting time for the business. "It will be three times the size of our current facility in the heart of Bright and have the potential to produce two million litres of beer per year," he says. "After more than a decade growing Bright Brewery as a destination and hospitality offering, we now want to see its beers at bars and bottle shops around the country." The new facility in Bright's industrial estate will be for wholesale production of its core range which includes American and Australian-style pale ales, amber ale, dubbel, lager, porter, session ale and witbier. The business’s heart and soul will remain at its existing Gavan Street location, where new and experimental beers will continue to be brewed.
