Philter Brewery And Taproom
You know Philter as the epic gypsy brewer shaking things up on the frothy front. Now, the Philter team has found its forever home in the very apt hood of Marrickville.
You’ll find this beauty on Sydenham Road, inside an old yoghurt factory built back in the 1950s. The legendary trifecta behind this craft mecca, Mick Neil, Stef Constantoulas, and Sam Fuss, have created a mostly retro fit-out, inspired by the building’s bones.
You can also expect a downstairs bar with a full view of the brewers in action and there’s also a secret concept bar upstairs.
“We always wanted to open a venue but it was just about finding the right place”, says Neil. “We want people to be able to drink our beers and go ‘wow, that's a double IPA that's flooded full of hops but I can actually have two or three of them, even though it’s 7.7%”. That’s a whole lot of booze for a beer which, as Neil points out, is somewhat dangerous. But when it’s this good, you won’t be able to help yourself.
Philter Brewing has been making its mark in the beer world since 2017 and is iconic for slinging solid XPA, session red ale, lager, and a bunch of IPA’s full of hops.
The brew bar is open on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, from 5pm - 9pm. It's also open Friday through Sunday, but only by appointment.
