Atomic Beer Project has arrived in Sydney! The first-ever venue from WA based Gage Roads Brewing Co, they will open the doors to their Redfern microbrewery and Thai-inspired restaurant on September 24.
Atomic Beer Project is a brewpub at heart. All beers are brewed fresh on-site, with the brewery’s core range of Atomic Pale Ale, XPA and IPA sitting alongside a rotation of limited release, seasonal and experimental brews. Those releases include Cryo Red Alert and Paul’s Porter, named after a key member of the venue build team. Led by Head Brewer, Nick Ivey, Atomic Beer Project’s team is passionate about beer and driven by innovation. Their mission – to explore and experiment with hop flavours and beer styles, while delivering beer full of depth but without complication. Beer is front and centre of this Redfern venue, with brewing taking place in full view of the bar and restaurant.
While serious about beer, Atomic Beer Project’s menu is designed to perfectly complement the experience. Head Chef, Jordan McLeod serves up bites and share plates inspired by his time working in Pan-Asian kitchens around the world, including opening Longrain Tokyo. Think a trip around South East Asia where all your favourite dishes make up the itinerary. Diners can feast on smaller plates from the appetiser menu, including Porter braised beef cheek croissants with coriander, shallots, and fermented chilli; Grilled tiger prawn skewers with green curry butter; and Kingfish sashimi with mustard and shoyu dressing. For substantial shares and mains, the lunch and dinner menus include larger dishes such as Chargrilled riverine sirloin with coriander and green chilli chimichurri; Pork and squid salad with peanuts and nuoc cham; Barbecued bannockburn chicken, soy mirin glaze and yuzu kosho; and Southern yellow curry of roast cauliflower, Thai eggplant and snake beans. The menu will evolve seasonally to complement the expanding range of brews. With community at its core, the curated wine and spirits list heavily features local suppliers and distilleries sourced from the Redfern neighbourhood and surrounds including, Brix, Poor Toms and Archie Rose.
Housed in a renovated mid-century warehouse in the heart of Redfern, Atomic Beer Project draws on the creativity and progression of the area. Careful consideration has been taken to ensure Redfern and its history is reflected throughout the brewery. Inspired by the local community, Atomic Beer Project’s renovation has retained the stories and scars of the building’s previous custodians.
Working with construction company Promena Projects and interior design studio YSG, Atomic Beer Project’s Redfern brewpub incorporates an industrial palette of polished concrete, stainless steel, enamel paint, rusty girders and subway tiles. The interior is emphasized with splashes of colour – namely bold red, green, and yellow – which separates the two-tiered bar, dining, and co-working spaces to create a modern, playful ambience. The custom-built bar features a striking 12-metre long top, with its bright green glow a nod of the head to the colour of hops. The functioning brewery is on full show featuring a state of the art 3-vessel brewhouse, 4-fermentation vessels and 6-bright tanks connected to the taps so patrons can drink beer fresh from the tank. These striking stainless-steel tanks can be seen from every corner of the venue. An upper-level co-working come dining space with sweeping views across the lower-level bar and brewhouse has been designed to offer office-like amenities, including unlimited
WiFi and bookable tables with USB and power sockets, as well as exceptional coffee, all-day menus, and the bonus of beer on tap.
