True South’s brewery moves out

July 7, 2014

Black Rock, Victoria: True South brewery, restaurant and functions venue has announced it will cease on-site brewing operations in Black Rock, effective today. True South has been brewing its craft beer and cider on-site since commencement of operations in December 2009.

True South logoGrant Dow, founder of True South commented, “its a big change for us to move the brewery; both our brewing and hospitality operations have thrived in the past few years, having been recognised by our peers in both industries.”

“As a result of our success, there’s competition for additional floor space to increase both production capacity and seating, something which is at a premium on the waterfront in Black Rock.”

True South will continue to supply its complete range of beer and cider, so from a consumer perspective it’s business as usual. The brewery space will be re-purposed into additional dining, with the design paying homage to its origins.

The new brewery areas will be available from 1st September with the option of a Chef’s table available in this more private space.

Our beer and cider will continue to be brewed by Head brewer, Renn Blackman, who has placed his unique style on our range, adding several new beers to the line-up over the past 18 months.

    Thanks for those who have emailed or posted to Facebook to ask questions… Here’s what we have been advised.

    I followed up with True South and they advise…

    “The brewery itself is heading to a new site in Torquay which is owned by Renn Blackman, our current brewer. Hence the continuity for our production.”

    “Renn continue to brew True South beers; he will also be brewing his own beers – all of these beers will be made on the “Newlands” brewery equipment which is now on its way to Torquay. The True South brand will continue as it is today.”

    Where will the beer be brewed in future? In a purpose built facility or contract brewed?
