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.
