The cool downstairs bar has a giant industrial pane glass feature window that opens via remote control to let the outdoors in and on the mezzanine out back is a funky deck that wraps around a line-up of shiny brewing tanks in which up to 1000l of beer a week are brewed. From the deck (and also from the downstairs bar) stairs lead up to the rustic brick-walled upper bar/dining room with two tiny soutght after balconies overlooking the street.

There's also a laneway garden out back that makes a great retreat and is a sought after spot for functions, as are some of the other ambient spaces. Ask Catchment Brewing Co for options.
