Vote #1 Alpine Lager & support small business

Love Bright? Love beer? Love supporting small, indie brewers? We need your help!

Voting is now open in the annual GABS Festival Hottest 100 Craft Beers Poll – and we’d love to ask for your support in voting for our best-selling Alpine Lager.

Competitions like these are really important to small, family-owned businesses like ours.

There are so many amazing craft beers out there and we know your 5 votes are precious. But a vote for Alpine Lager is more than just a beer vote – it’s a vote for outdoor adventure, a vote for small business, and a vote for the future.

Check out the video and hear from our founder Scott about what your vote means to him.

UPDATE: COVID exposure on October 16 & 20, 2021

Sadly, we have been notified by the DHHS that two COVID-positive people dined at Bright Brewery on separate occasions recently, leading us to be classified as a Tier 1 COVID exposure site for the following times:
Sat, Oct 16: 6-8pm 
Wed Oct 20: 11.50am-1.30pm
All customers who were checked in at the Brewery during these time will be contacted by DHHS (or you can call 1800 675 398). All of our staff who were working are now in isolation and following government directives.
Due to the length of time between the exposure and the Brewery being notified, and our already-rigorous cleaning and COVID-safe protocols, the brewery remains open for business.
We’ve been so blessed to have been so well isolated up here in our High Country bubble for the past two years, however, with COVID cases popping up all over the state, it really was only a matter of time.
We’re saddened that this has happened, but we’ll take it in our stride, confident that everything we’ve learnt and have been practising for the past two years is working to keep our staff and our customers safe.
And because of that, we’re thrilled to remain open for business, as per the government directive.
Please see the FAQs below for further info.

When was the exposure?

  1. Sat, Oct 16: 6-8pm
  2. Wed, Oct 20: 11.50am-1.30pm

When were we notified?

  1. Mon, Oct 25 @ 7pm (9 days after)
  2. Tue, Oct 26 @ 7pm (6 days after)

Are we closing?

No. Due to the length of time between the exposure & notification, and our cleaning regimes, we are not required to close.

Are our staff isolating?

All staff considered close contacts by the DHHS were sent home to isolate & test in accordance with DHHS directives. They will return to work when cleared to do so.

Are our staff vaccinated? 

Yes

Why didn’t anyone contact me?

DHHS are responsible for contacting customers/close contacts – however, they are running very far behind in this process (up to a week). We contacted everyone who had a booking during those times.

I’ve seen my mum in hospital/my baby grand-daughter/the pope in the past week. Do they need to isolate?

No. Only customers here at the Brewery at the time of the exposure are considered close contacts by the DHHS. No one you’ve had contact with since is involved – unless they were also here. This may change if you test positive.

I haven’t heard from the DHHS- What do I do now?

We are not health professionals & cannot tell you what to do. So it’s best to call the COVID hotline on 1800 675 398 or your GP for current health advice & next steps.

Come and have a beer with us!

Victoria, we bloody did it!

With COVID restrictions starting to ease, we are very excited to announce that, this Friday, we will be able to welcome 130 people at a time to come and have a beer with us!

After months of severe capacity restrictions due to COVID-19, we are thrilled to move to the next stage of reopening, which means that we are well on our way to a “normal” summer here in Bright.

We will be taking bookings for inside (30 people) and undercover outdoor tables only (30-40 people). All additional outside tables will be available for walk-in customers all day and night.

We’ll be launching our new Summer menu in honour of the occasion, and have a huge array of fresh and fun new beers, as well as all our core range faves!

To make a booking, head to our Table Bookings page. Otherwise, just pop in and see our friendly team and we’ll do our best to seat you.

While our Melbourne customers, unfortunately, will have to wait a little longer to visit us, the end is in sight and we can’t wait to see you back here soon!

Please note, due to Victorian Government Regulations, all customers must be fully vaccinated from Friday, Oct 22, and must show proof of vaccination upon request.
