Dockside Ale House is the official tap room of Dockside Brewery. Our aim is to provide you with the ultimate extraordinary craft beer experience. The Craft Beer scene has grown exponentially over the past few years both globally and locally. We have looked at craft beer worldwide and selected the best elements from the most famous establishments to help us form our innovative offering. Our concept is yet another first that is sure to set a new trend.

Every visit to our Ale House will be an educational yet entertaining experience. We want you to know as much as possible about craft beer in order for you to get the most out of what craft beer has to offer. We want to allow you the opportunity for your pallet to evolve in order for you to become an informed and sophisticated beer drinker.

Our easily accessible prime location is the perfect setting for our passionate staff to begin your extraordinary craft beer education. Our offering of quality beers is unique to us, they are brewed in our brewery specifically for the Ale House. We can guarantee that you will not find the same range at other bars or restaurants. Our talented brewer is always experimenting with new flavors, as a result we will continue to add new beers to our lineup to keep our experience fresh. So check in often to find out what's new.

Not a beer drinker? No problem, We have selected a range of craft Gin, wine, sparkling wine and cocktails for you to experience while your beer geek gets his fix.

Hungry? While we are keeping our menu simple, for the moment, we will tantalise your taste buds and wow your senses with our 'Grand Charcuterie & Cheese Board' or our 'Hops & Hocks' Beer & Charcuterie tasting. If you aren't completely convinced by this then you can order in from our neighbours, Col'Cacchio, News Cafe and Yi-Pin, Just ask us for the menus.

Our upstairs 'Malt Room' has a deck overlooking the waterfront that is available for private functions. We can accommodate both sit down and cocktail style events. You can discuss your catering requirements with the Boardwalk Hotels Executive Chef.

Tours of our brewery along with hosted tastings and pairings can be arranged by appointment.
