Our Story

Born and raised in Wollongong, Five Barrel Brewing is a family owned and operated brewery established in 2015. We take a fresh approach to brewing handcrafted beer for the Illawarra. We love this part of the world, and it has shaped our philosophy of keeping it simple, and doing it right.

Our sole goal isn’t to supply fresh beer to our locals. It is to be ingrained in the local community. To focus our efforts on sustainability and form partnerships with those who share our values.

What's Pouring

Our brewery features a taproom with 8 taps of fresh craft beer produced on site. We routinely feature our 4 core beers alongside a selection of 4 rotating seasonal, and limited release beers. If you cannot make your way into the brewery itself, we package most of our creations to buy online.
