Hoppers Brewing Co

Hoppers Brewing Co, a new brewery and distillery in Albion is bringing seasonal brews and vintage vibes to Crosby Road (formerly Fonzie Abbott brewery). When stepping foot inside Hoppers, you are immediately hit with a wave of warmth and nostalgia, almost as if you are walking into a friends living room. The cosy space, which caters to around 60 punters, is decked-out with vintage furniture and eclectic decor, including several leather couches and recliners that will ensure you stay for an extended session. Those who prefer to sip in the sun can grab a spot in the beer garden, or perch up on the mezzanine for a more intimate ambiance. With a focus on supporting local, Hoppers Brewing Co’s walls are filled with local art, including an interactive grafiti-style mural and some beautiful charcoal prints.

When it comes to the jars, Hoppers is all about seasonal and traditional brews with no artificial additives or flavours and unwavering commitment to quality, innovation and top-tier flavour. Boasting 14 taps, there is a palate-pleasing pint for everyone’s taste with the likes of a Crosby Crush (juicy pale ale), Seven Nil (German-inspired golden ale) and Night Tunnel (rich dark lager), plus a sumptuous sour, stout and ginger beer currently on rotation. The distillery arm of the business, Wicked Spirits offers a smooth gin and vodka, with a rum also on the horizon that has just been barrelled. Alongside the beers and spirits non-alcoholic options such as a kombucha from local brewery Magic Potion, as well as a range of vino from Gold Coast’s Witches Falls Winery. The Hoppers crew are in the process of curating a list of tasty tipples to complement their spirits, so be sure to keep an eye out for that in the near future. While the booze dispensary is currently offering a variety of food truck fare, Hoppers will soon introduce an elevated culinary offering in the form of a  Japanese-inspired noshery called the Yak Shak.
