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.

We and all our friends will never return to your premises while you are not accepting cash, the fact you did not accept legal tender is disgusting. We will spend our money elsewhere from now on. Good luck

Bright Brewery
Responded on 11 August 2020

Hi Chris, I'm sorry you still feel that way, as we did accept your cash payment on the night, as you claimed to have no other means of payment, nor a phone to check in, as required by Vic COVID regulations. As you'd be aware, there is a global health pandemic underway, and this allows private businesses to put policies in place to reduce the risk to staff. For us, and many, many other businesses, this means no cash. These legal policies were explained to you on the night.

Went with our 2 boys, 6yo & 4yo. Sat outside, which we preferred. Although winter, table heaters made it more than comfortable. Food was hearty and decent and kids well catered for. Service was great, very friendly and recommended some local things we may like to do. Beer/wine was fab and it’s very well run in the current climate 1hr 45mins allowed pet sitting - this was more than ample for food and 3-4 drinks. We’ll be back!

We were a bit disappointed overall with the experience. We were told that the brewery had been trying to contact us to say that we would be sat outside, but had received no calls - luckily we had dressed warm as we'd seen the disclaimer on the booking. Food wise - I was excited about the rainbow trout but found the fish to be pretty flavourless, and the stuffing was bland. We also ordered the pizza which was ok. The beers however were delicious - I had the porter and enjoyed it a lot. The guy who served us was really friendly, and I'd say overall they staff did a good job in the strange new environment.

Bright Brewery
Responded on 10 July 2020

Hi Jack - Thank you for your feedback. While we do our best to call bookings to confirm outdoor seating at the start of each service, it can be difficult to reach everyone. We will pass your feedback on to our kitchen about the trout, however, if in the future something like this was to occur please let our staff know so we can rectify the issue on the day and ensure you leave satisfied. Really glad you enjoyed the beers and service. We hope to see you back again in the future - Cheers!
