While beer may be the main attraction at Melbourne’s Temple Brewing Company, located in East Brunswick, the food is also prepared with just as much craft and dedication. Their large plates include salt baked young chicken stuffed with herbs, rye and mustard and baked in salt crust, and Cape Grim short ribs braised for 8 hours and glazed with the New World Order sweet wort straight from the in-house microbrewery.

Each beer is crafted using traditional methods and the best ingredients for optimum taste. Their Bicycle Beer is a light summery ale with subtle hints of citrus and summer fruits, while lovers of a classic pale ale will love their distinctive Anytime IPA. With an extensive menu and selection of beers, Melbourne’s Temple Brewing Company on Weston Street in East Brunswick is sure to please craft beer enthusiasts and foodies alike.
Great food and beer. Really enjoyed the tasting paddle which was much more generous than the typical paddle. Burgers were great and nice friendly atmosphere
Really lovely, great food, lovely atmosphere, fab beer and very friendly staff. However it's worth noting that the kitchen closes at 8pm on a Sunday.
Great food and great service. The midnight burger and slider are two tasting options. We look forward to coming back and trying some of the other dishes on the menu.
A really cool and relaxed venue. The food was delicious and there was a great selection of beers. It's quite small so you probably need to book first.
Always a great experience. It was not my first visit and won't be my last. When I booked I asked if we could be seated at a well lit table as I have low vision in low light, they put us at a well lit table near the bar and even asked if we preferred another table. The food was terrific, I had a beautiful Mushroom ragù with creamy polenta which was divine and my friends really enjoyed their Midnight burger. As always the beers are terrific, I look forward to their seasonal Lemon Verbena Wit and was lucky enough to also try their Rapture Belgian Tripel which was amazing..
I've had a lot of burgers in my day but That midnight beef burger was on point! Charcoal brioche bun so soft & fluffy & meat so juicy with a sweat source. Fried chicken was great too Would like to come back on a nice day to enjoy the beer garden area
Lovely food, great ales on offer and friendly service. The sliders were great, and these guys sure know how to cook a steak. If I had to complain about anything, I would have loved the share plate to be a bigger serving, I wanted more of those beautiful scallops...
Great service. Great food. Friendly staff. Bar tables and and stools are odd sizing if your vertically challenged. The stools being shuffled over the floor is a constant sound because of this. The table n chairs also have large bucket seats not great for vertically challenged. Music a little loud if the inside dining is not overly busy.
Nice selection of beer. Staff knowledge and service very good. Really impressed with the service. Menu is limited, but some interesting choices available, garden looks like a good place for a sunny day. Visited on Good Friday, so not much happening.
Can recommend their Midnight Burger, cook to perfection and went down well with the Bloody Mary. Others in the group enjoyed the craft beers on tap. Service was great.
