The brewery aesthetic certainly didn’t disappoint as attendees commented on the size of the brewery and the sustainability-focused design, including reclaimed bricks and wood architectural elements. The on-site 25-hectolitre production facility is separated from the brew-pub by only windows, which allows Urban Alley Brewery punters to see their brew being made whilst they enjoy their drinks and food.

Departing party guests were given a goody bag containing official merchandise, and Urban Alley’s Biodegradable six pack rings (E6PR), which are now available via Liqourland and have been introduced as standard for all Urban Alley products. Urban Allery Brewery is currently the only brewery in Australia and 5th brewery in the world to implement its use.
