Easter Away vs. Easter at Burnley. There can be only one winner

‘Are we there yet’?

Yep, it’s that time of the year again, Easter long weekend. Fancy a bit of a change of scenery from your average camping trip with friends and family? We at Burnley Brewing have a proposal for you. The best part about it? No commitment or lifelong promises needed. Just say ‘I do’. Actually, ‘I will’ probably works best!

Ok. Here goes nothing… Will you join us this weekend at our brewpub for good times and even better beers? That took a lot of courage. Still not convinced? Let’s see if we can persuade you with what we are coining ‘Burnley’s Easter alternative’. You decide which sounds like more fun.

Camping + Easter weekend = Traffic. That’s maths no one wants. Do you really want to be stuck in the car on the West Gate Bridge shouting at other cars ‘LEARN HOW TO DRIVE!’ You don’t need that kind of stress in your life. Not this weekend. The Burnley alternative? A hassle-free tram ride along Bridge Road, hop off at Burnley and sip on a refreshingly dry Saison. That’s where we’ll be.

Another conundrum of going camping over this Easter weekend is the whole sleeping situation. Squeezing 6 of you into a 3-man tent and waking up at the crack of dawn stiff and smelly just doesn’t cut it with us. The Burnley alternative involves a good nights sleep the night before, rock up fresh at noon and drink some mighty fine Frühschoppen. That’s beer you drink with good company before midday! We recommend our super sessionable, toasty Vienna Lager to get you going.

Burnley Brewing is open over Easter and we’ll be avoiding all these camping disasters by kicking back and enjoying the sunshine with a pint of Pale Ale, or three.

Just in case you’re interested, our opening times this Easter are:

Good Friday: Closed

Saturday: Noon-late

Sunday: Noon-late

Monday: Noon-late, plus $22 pizza and pint deal

We’ll see you there,


Sincerely, Burnley

Burnley Brewing takes on Melbourne BeerFest

Hello forward thinkers and Burnley drinkers! Cast your minds back a few weeks ago to March 3rd. We were at St Kilda’s Catani Gardens for Melbourne BeerFest. The forecast? 32 degrees with a high chance of great beers and a jolly good time.

We were super stoked to join a number of other brewery legends such as Bad Shepherd, Brick Lane and Kooinda brewing company at BeerFest. The beer gods were certainly looking down upon us this day; blue skies, golden beers and a heap of happy punters gearing up for beer time.

The Burnley Brewing tent was a hive of activity from the get-go. We gave away some $100 vouchers to some lucky people and even brought our table-tennis table for a few rounds of beat the brewer. A few lucky festivalgoers beat owner/brewer Phil, and were duly rewarded for their efforts with a free beer!

We were also super stoked to see our Vienna Lager listed as the first highlight brew of the day in the official BeerFest programme. Catching up with other industry folk and happy punters made for a day to remember for the Burnley family. We can’t wait to see you all next year.

Piccolina Gelateria X Burnley Brewing. Beer flavoured ice cream? Yes please!

Ever wondered what beer-flavoured gelato would taste like? Now’s your chance! We’ve had the pleasure of teaming up with the guys from Piccolina Gelateria to churn up three unique gelato flavours with our very own brews.

With a scorching start to autumn in Melbourne, we thought to ourselves, ‘what do the people want?’ The conclusion; beer ice cream! The ultimate hybrid has been created for your enjoyment this week only.

Piccolina Gelateria has created three limited edition flavours, each have their own unique tastes. For a limited time at their Smith Street Flagship store, Piccolina will be scooping Saison with salted peanuts, Sry Stout and chocolate brownie and Empire Apple Cider sorbet.

Our friends from Piccolina will also be popping-up at our place on Friday, 23 March and Saturday, 24 March only, so don’t miss out.

Tasting flights are available for those who simply cannot decide on just one, and we don’t blame you, they’re incredible! For just $12 you can sample the whole lot plus some salted nuts, meaning you don’t have to miss out on any of the boozy, creamy goodness. 

See you there,


Sincerely, Burnley
