Opening its second on-premise this month, craft beer giant BrewDog has swung open the doors of its venue at Melbourne’s Pentridge Prison site.

The $3m project in partnership with pub operator Australian Venue Co. (AVC) has a capacity of 500 and is spread across two levels with three function spaces, dining and an outdoor beer garden. 

AVC CEO, Paul Waterson, said the November 25 opening was just in time for the seasonal rush.

“It’s an unmissable craft beer destination,” he said.

“We’re excited that our first partnership with BrewDog has come to life and that we have opened a venue in such a storied Melbourne location.”

[ BrewDog opened a second Brisbane venue] in November and like its northern counterpart, the Pentridge pub will have 20 craft beers on tap and a food menu featuring 50 per cent plant-based items.

It has also created 77 new jobs.

AVC and BrewDog are preparing to open a second BrewDog site together in Sydney’s South Eveleigh precinct this summer.
