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.

Best beers around. Staff are exceptionally friendly and efficient. Grab a bowl of chips they are well worth it.

Very cold sitting outside. Staff had difficulty providing a meal that was gluten, dairy and egg free.
Meals didn’t come out together.

I have visited the brewery on numerous occasions and unfortunately this was not one of the best experiences. The food came out sporadically over about a 30 minute period and one round of drinks was charged for but never arrived. Was very disappointing as we had brought along two families that had never been to Bright before.

After multiple visits for a meal in the past 6 months, have noticed the quality of the food drop off significantly compared to the first time we visited. At least the beer was cold and wet.

Booking a table was easy. We had been many times before but our four friends hadn’t experienced Bright Brewery. We were not disappointed ... the variety of beers was a huge hit and the meals just as delicious as I remembered. The options for allergies was a welcome bonus.

We had an absolutely fabulous time and enjoyed the ambience that was created with the lighting and spray from the ceiling on that warm balmy evening we attended. The service was great and the food delicious. We will be back.
Thank you.

Everything from the booking to the front desk to the table staff to the fabulous food and beautiful environment were absolutely outstanding and we all agreed we’d be back in future! Tristan and Katie were so friendly, attentive and fun, and made it a great lunch for our daughter’s 7th birthday. Which was noted and acknowledged in our booking notes and much appreciated! Best poké bowl I’ve ever had too. Bravo!

The food was amazing. The Margharita pizza is to die for! Chips are amazing. The aioli is so creamy and moreish. Every time I come to Bright I eat or drink a beer or two at the Brewery. Can't wait to come back again.

Fantastic. Accommodated us even when we were 30 mins early for our booking.
Great work, especially in such a busy season and with the extra Covid requirements!

The staff there were fantastic. We sat outside, brought our dog along and each staff member who walked by had a chat and patted the dog.
Check in and ordering from the qr code was nice and easy as well.

A good experience to have but we won’t be returning. Food was average and way overpriced. Service was fantastic however and we were kindly moved to a table with more shade when we asked. Quite an underwhelming experience.
