For beers on Bourke Road, there’s no better place to go than Rocks Brewing Co., a brewery owned and operated by fifth and sixth generation convict descendants, telling the stories of Sydney’s early convicts and settlers.

After six years of being ‘gypsy brewers’, Rocks Brewing Co. have now found a permanent home in Sydney, right on Bourke Road. With raw concrete flooring, metal lamps and industrial-chic benches and stools, Rocks Brewing Co. provides the ideal setting, whether its for a casual lunch or some pints with mates in the evening, with its spacious outdoor seating area perfect for chilling in the sun on a summer day in Alexandria.

Pair your pint with Southern American-inspired dishes.
Share some crunchy waffle fries with bacon salt, Louisiana hot wings, mac n cheese, jalapeno poppers or calamari. If you want something a bit larger, go for one of the juicy burgers like the American cheeseburger, the hot diggity dog (German frankfurter sausage with avocado & sweet corn salsa, and manchego in a brioche bun), or some crispy-skinned barramundi with heirloom tomatoes, white anchovies, red onion, pearl couscous, basil and confit garlic. Vegetarians won’t feel left out either, with choices like the veggie burger and roasted mushroom risotto. Located inside the Zeppelin Building on Bourke Road in Alexandria, Sydney’s Rocks Brewing Co. draws in diners every day of the week, whether its for lunch, dinner or drinks. To avoid having to wait for a table, making a reservation beforehand is recommended!
I like that the drink and food prices are reasonable and the food is very good. It is nice to have somewhere with a relaxed casual outdoor dining area that also welcomes four legged members of the family.
Went to watch the Super Bowl, the menu they put on for the day was absolutely excellent and the beer from Rocks Brewing is always great.
The food came out fast and tasted nice, especially the brisket. The staff were amazing!! They were attentive, fun, quirky and professional at the same time. Great atmosphere for groups to chill. The hangman pale ale and honeydew beer were nice too! It was my second time here and will come back in the future.
Had my birthday lunch with a group of 16 people here. I had the really nice tacos here that easily filled up two people including me. And also, they have amazing staff. They kept my cake cool in their fridge and provided plates and cutlery to eat the cake after our main meals — no charge. The wonderful staff member, who brought the cake out and I unfortunately didn’t catch the name of, took lovely group photos and a video that will be memorable for years to come. Will come again!
The staff at Alexandria were super friendly and extremely helpful. The meals were tasty, with fast service and generous portions. The team was receptive to my requests on the phone and they even offered to store our birthday cake in their fridge for us. A great day out.
The Rocks Brewing Co was had a great feel we booked for about 16 people with a table outside there was lots of space. The food was well sized and quite taste. A few people tried to go through all 12 beers on tab while others just picked their favourites for the night
Took 16 10yr olds for pizza dinner after Skyzone session and the service and staff could not have been anymore helpful& friendly. Pizzas were delicious and big open space for the kids. Definitely going back. Maybe with less kids!!! :)
Was a nice place, though a bit loud as the brewery was next to us and I believe they may have been doing some maintenance as they were banging pipes. However, food and service was great, and I imagine the maintenance was a once off thing,
A great experience at the brewery as always, the beer is fantastic there, one of my favourites, and the burgers go down a treat. Make sure to try the skillet cookie if you're looking for a cheeky dessert.
Lovely atmosphere for a birthday/celebratory dinner with friends. Loved the live music and the drinks were amazing. Lovely staff as well! Even customers nearby were super friendly and easygoing. Convenient parking in Sydney!!? Such a find!
