Atomic Beer Project confirms Redfern brewery launch

The Redfern brewery and taproom by The Atomic Beer Project, the new Sydney-based subsidiary of WA’s Gage Roads Brewing Company, opens Thursday September 24, 2020.

The Atomic Beer Project has commissioned its Redfern brewery and the venue is ready to start trading following delays attributed to COVID-19 restrictions.

“The Redfern site is one that’s exciting for us,” Gage Roads’ then head of marketing Miles Hull told Drinks Adventures earlier this year.

“We really love the history and culture that’s evolved over the years in Redfern. It’s certainly an emerging inner-city area with a strong cultural identity.

“When designing the venue, it was important for us to look into the history of the area and speak with the locals.

“The Atomic Beer Project will be a venue that respects that past while adding to the future cultural fabric of the community.”

Gage Roads head of hospitality, Stewart Wheeler – formerly of Little Creatures Brewing Company – drove the Redfern brewery and taproom project.

“His experience in creating some of the best venues in Australia and overseas is second to none,” said Hull.

“We’re confident that our team will deliver a venue that really highlights what Atomic Beer Project is all about.”

“The building itself is an old warehouse, which obviously lends itself really well to a brewery. It will have our core range of beers and also a number of limited releases that will regularly rotate.

“It’s a place where the brewers will be able to experiment, tinker and try new things. Beer lovers will be able to come in and there will always be something new to try.

“Our ambition is to be far more of a comprehensive hospitality venue, with a significant investment into our food offering as well.

“We really want to be a venue that attracts both locals and visitors to the area for a full dining experience throughout the day and night.”

Nick Ivey – formerly of the Gage Roads brewing team – is head brewer for The Atomic Beer Project, which will be dedicated to hop-driven beer styles.

The company now has a packaged liquor licence allowing the sale of Gage Roads products not produced on-site.

“It is proposed that the licence be the subject of a condition restricting the sale of liquor to only such products,” the licence application said.

“The density of packaged liquor licences in Redfern is currently below the state average.”

The Atomic Beer Project Redfern brewery and taproom is located at 158 Regent Street, Redfern. More information on the venue is available here.
