Mountain Goat Newtown brewpub now open

Mountain Goat Newtown is the first interstate brewery and taproom for the pioneering Melbourne craft beer brand, Mountain Goat Beer.

Opening Tuesday October 6, Mountain Goat Newtown has 12 taps pouring the company’s stalwart beers Steam Ale and Summer Ale alongside local exclusives such as Newtopia Pale Ale.

Located in a former furniture warehouse at 435-437 King Street, the 155-seat venue has a full kitchen as well as a beer garden.

“We have been looking to spread our wings beyond Victoria for a while now and seeing as we are turning 23 years old this month, we thought it was about time,” says Mountain Goat general manager Mick Bentley.

“Newtown is known for its arts, culture and live music, things we have always supported. We’re big believers in community and coming together to enjoy a beer, share stories and a laugh while listening to good tunes.

“We can’t wait to find our place in the heart of Sydney’s craft beer and music community.”

Mountain Goat Newtown is the latest in a swathe of Sydney brewery openings, following Atomic Beer Project in Redfern and Philter Brewing in Marrickville.

The King St venue features a 12-hectolitre brewing system, with some components coming straight from the Goat brewery in Melbourne.

The build was managed by the Mountain Goat team in Melbourne from their loungerooms during the peak of the Coronavirus lockdown.

The current Melbourne brewery is at North Street, Richmond and has been operating since 2004, after relocating from nearby Crown Street.
