Leading craft beer distributor Phoenix Beers has welcomed the resurrection of one of its mainstay brands, Temple Brewing.

Established in Brunswick East, Melbourne in 2005, Temple Brewing went into voluntary liquidation earlier this year as a result of a partnership dispute.

But brewery founder Ron Feruglio recently announced that after shutting Temple's doors almost half a year ago, they have purchased the business back with the help of a new investor, Nick Pang.

With new look label designs and a fresh approach, they declared that Temple’s future prospects will be “greatly facilitated by having a team of astute, business savvy partners steering the brand. It will be all about the beer”.

Temple has announced new additions to its range including Anytime IPA, an easy-drinking but hop heavy IPA that sits at very sessionable 4.7 per cent ABV, and a heavily hopped pilsner to be announced shortly as a keg only release.

Temple held a resurrection event on last Friday, and bottled stock is expected to hit shelves around the country shortly thereafter via Phoenix Beers distribution.

Phoenix national sales manager Todd Barac said: “We are rapt to have Temple back in the portfolio. They are fantastic people with exceptional beers and we can’t wait to get the new look Temple back onto shelves where it belongs.”
