Great Beer
At Bright Brewery, we brew an adventurous range of independent craft beers on the banks of the Ovens River, in the heart of Bright, Victoria.

Family-owned and fiercely independent, Bright Brewery was born from a passion for well-made beer, a love for the town of Bright, and the adventurous outdoors lifestyle that the High Country provides.

Come and join us for a MountainCrafted beer and a delicious fresh meal on the banks of the Ovens River.

Our Spring/Summer menu features brilliant local produce from Bright and surrounds with options for everyone - including salads, sides, pizzas, sharing boards, mains and kids meals.

Select a MountainCrafted beer from our 24 taps or a glass of local wine, sit back and enjoy beautiful Bright.

Pulled pork sliders - delicious. Pizza - way too big for one person, but very tasty and well done. Great selection of craft beer. Recommend a visit for sure

Promptly shown to our booked table. Staff attentive and polite. Four different selections from menu all delicious and served together. Males enjoyed tasting a different beer, ladies had a wine. Cheerful setting, very clean facilities. Would certainly return if in Bright again.

Seating outside was uncomfortable.
Our entrees and main meals came out together.
We found that by the time we finished our entrees our main meal was cold.
Because of that next time we will be ordering only one meal.

We have dined at the Bright Brewery three times in the last month and each time it has been very good. Hoping to get back to Bright in the near future to dine out again.

Not a bad place for a few beers. Only suggestion would be perhaps hiring a few more staff members coming into the busier time of the year as my beers that I ordered were forgotten about on a few occasions.

Food was fast and fresh. Simple pub style menu that gives a good selection for most people. Prices a touch high but being tourist area it's not unexpected. Happy to buy some takeaway beer to support the local economy! A great spot to sit out along the river and playground area.

Staff don’t want to be there, service for food and drinks is poor. Wait time for drinks is far too long, they beers on menu and special board that aren’t even available and two different prices.

Laughable experience. So bad that we were laughing in the end. Basil Fawlty obviously conducts the training here. I would suggest dining here if you wish to be: (a) treated like a number, (b) forgotten about as a customer, (c) rushed in every aspect except getting you a drink or food in a timely manner (d) pushed from pillar to post - expect to be moved around regularly by staff, from table to table, even if you booked well in advance and most of the tables are not yet occupied, (e) made to feel like an annoyance, (f) expected to select your meal extremely fast while a waitperson stares at you, (g) waiting a long, long time for a drink (well over half an hour) and instructed by bar staff that they cannot serve you because you are sitting in a certain section.

Soulless. Staff didn’t want to serve you. Too much effort. Food was very average. Used to love it. Has changed so much.

Maybe Covid has a lot to answer for. Signing in by phone is not possible without one and we oldies shouldn't be made feel stupid. Staff, in my opinion, should listen to customers, doesn't matter how busy they are. No customer, no business, no job...
Meal good, substantial, tasty.

Overpriced, untrained staff, nothing like it used to be, we will all be advising our friends how bad it was and advise them never to go back. Pitty!

I didn’t understand why I couldn’t book a table outside when, for the entire time we were there, there were empty tables.

I booked at 8.50am on the day we visitors.

It appeared that walk ins were getting outside tables.
