A new brewery will occupy the Ballarat, Victoria premises vacated by Rebellion Brewing at the end of 2014.
Peter Parry, whose background is in the electrical and vocational training sectors, is launching Athletic Club Brewery at 47 Mair Street East, Ballarat.
“We’ve received our stainless steel, we’re just about ready to finish installation and we’re going to start commissioning hopefully late next week,” Parry told Australian Brews News.
“Hopefully we can be up and pouring a couple of weeks before Christmas.”
The brewery has been named in honour of the adjacent pub, which was originally known as the Athletic Club Hotel.
Parry will be running a brewery supplied by Spark Brew Engineering, with a Meheen bottling line and a canning line also on the way.
