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.

The food here is exceptional, and was way more than we could eat! Thankfully they offered takeaway containers. Very covid safe environment. Highly recommend.

Not a huge variety of food to choose from - specials were not available.
The food we ordered was lovely though.

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.

Very nice food at a reasonable price. My advice is to order 3-4 entrees to share between two. Plenty of food.

Service food and drinks were very very good , ambiance was just the right setting.
We would have gone back again but sittings for the next few days were full but will come back when in Bright again. Very pleasing to see dogs allowed in outside eating area.

Great food and drinks with wonderful service with a great location.
Time to give the deck area an update
One thing to look old and rustic but this old and worn out.

With COVID restrictions we lucked out with a booking but sadly couldn’t get back in again over the next three days. The beers at Bright are nice, especially the MIA but nothing overly special. Yeh burger was a bit over done but I like that. The pizza was sloppy but again, I like that. The kids loved their fish n chips. The staff at the front could do with being a bit friendlier, although I appreciate how difficult it is during these times.

Food was undercooked, raw.
Service was slow, took twenty minutes before we got a drink and then undercooked food .
No one told us you could order via tech app on table.
Disappointing

Our first meal in Bright after Melbourne's lockdown. We felt welcome and were very grateful to see terrific adherence to Covid safe rules, ie, staff wearing masks properly, social distancing and smart ordering and payment methods. We had a really great evening.

Great food... Love the venue... Staff overall were great.. Apart from the one who carried on about being susceptible to covid and made it clear to us on our arrival but couldn't even wear a face mask properly.
Was a bit of a WTF moment but other than that will definitely be back
