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.

Awesome evening with the kids. Ordering was easy, the service was fast, friendly and efficient. Great range of options. Unfortunately several dishes were unavailable but it was an 8pm sitting. All the food we received was very tasty. We would come back for sure.

After ordering waited about an hour before the food came - and then I think only because we actually flagged down a staff member and asked what was happening.

The menu was limited with several dishes unavailable. Drinks service was very slow, even with many staff working. Each time I go it appears very disorganised and inefficient. The beer quality often varies and is not reliable. The ambiance is good outside and too noisy inside. I won’t be heading back anytime soon. This was my last chance for you after visiting since you began. Much better when smaller.

Terrible service and overpriced. They have no clue, they are just lucky they have prime position otherwise they wouldn’t survive
Would not return

Great venue, really good staff, fabulous cold drinks on a very warm day. We just shared sliders, wings and calamari...which was ok
Would definitely come back.....maybe just order different food.

We only stayed for a drink at the brewery so can’t comment on the food but the service was great thanks to the very friendly staff. It was starting to get busy due to the Easter crowds and they were managing this very well, including sticking to the COVID safety measures. Being able to order from the table was also great. Will be back whenever we are in Bright!

Would have preferred a better table allocation as the day was beautiful and if there are available spots it would have been nice to be seated there.

The bright brewery is a great venue for food and drink. The service is usually excellent but food service can be understandably slow at busy times. We are frequent customers.

Booked via opentable and got an outside table, which was good. Ordered food/drink via phone and drinks arrived pretty much straight away. Food was another matter...
After 35 minutes asked staff member what had happened to the food? He was apologetic but there was a 45 minute kitchen wait! Food was good when it arrived but the place was by no means full at 7:30 pm when we checked in

On a cold wet day, we sat outside, under cover. This was our choice as room inside was limited. The food and service were good, but nearby was a table with a lot of children who were quite loud

Staff werefriendly. Food was pretty good. Only complaint was that when we ordered three items (1 starter and 2 mains) one of the mains came first then about 15mins later the other main and starter came. It’s an issue of online ordering but surely there could be some oversight of how things come out of the kitchen.
