Welcome to Clifton Hill Brewing

It's all about the beer, brewed here

And the ‘here’ is important – the Clifton Hill Brewpub has found its home in the old Clifton Hill Hotel, which has been pouring beers for the good people of Clifton Hill and surrounds since 1884.

Our family has been operating and loving this pub since the mid 1980s. Leaving behind the wild, big music, big drinking days of the last decade, the pub has evolved alongside Clifton Hill as a suburb; we love good food, good beer, and a great community.  All are welcome here.

We brew on site

Our microbrewery is nestled in the heart of the pub and can be seen from the tap room and restaurant. Have a beer fresh from the taps while watching the next batch being made – you can see that the beer does not have far to travel.

Come visit, and stay a while

The Clifton Hill Brewpub has good vibes in its old bones, which helps you relax when you walk through the doors. Find a spot that suits you – inside or outside- and spend some time with us.

In addition to the tap room – our front bar – you will find our intimate side bar and our courtyard great spots for a relaxing drink.

As for dining, our main restaurant offers relaxed seating in the shadow of the brewery, with beautiful light through our leadlight windows in the warmer months and a roaring fire during winter.

Our barrel room is perfect for functions, featuring a window to our kitchen, where our busy chefs can cater for your events.

Pale Ale (5.2% abv)

Dark Ale (5.0% abv)

GOLD MEDAL AIBA 2019 – Our signature Dark Ale (now in cans!) gives off aromas of freshly roasted coffee, dark chocolate & sweet grain. Featuring roasted & caramel malts balanced with herbaceous European noble hops. Finishes dry so you can come back for more.

Irish Red Ale (4.4% abv)

Clifton Hill Brewpub Irish Red Ale is full of toffee & biscuit aromas & flavours. We pour this beer with nitrogen to give it a full creamy mouthful. Finishes smooth with a hint of roast malt. try it today!

Queens Parade Pale Ale (4.5% abv)

An Australian style Pale Ale that’s a bit more laid back than its American counterpart. We’ve actually honed the recipe to make this beer something that keeps you interested without blasting your taste buds. Hoppy, sessionable & refreshing.

India Pale Ale (6.4% abv)

Big & bold, our American style IPA (India Pale Ale) has a huge punch of resinous & tropical aromas which lead into a medium body balanced perfectly against a strong bitterness. We pack this beer with kilos of late addition hops to make this an IPA that takes no prisoners.
