Who we are:

Westside Ale Works is a family-owned and operated craft brewery tucked away on Alfred Street in South Melbourne. Partner and Head Brewer, Casey Wagner, pays homage to the microbreweries of the U.S. West Coast with everything he does - from the cozy atmosphere of our warehouse-style taproom, to the hop-driven beers he brews. We take pride in creating a warm and welcoming experience for anyone who walks through our big roller door!

What we do:

Our beer specialty typically includes styles like Pale Ales, IPA's, and Stouts, but we also have a number of seasonal releases - including those from our barrel program. We do not tend to stick to any one style, instead experimenting with everything from German Hefeweizens to NEIPAs to Russian Imperial Stouts and everything in between. We try to make sure there is something on tap for everyone, including the non-beer drinkers with our house-made apple cider and house-distilled gin. 

How it works:

In light of everything going on with Covid-19, we are offering all of our beer for takeaway in 355ml and 500ml cans, as well as 1 and 2L growlers. Stop in to buy any of our available beers for takeaway, or order from our online store for takeaway or delivery (available M-F). Stay tuned for re-opening details soon!
