Brownstone Micro Brewery
Good news people – Brownstone Micro Brewery will soon be back and brewing!
As of 30 June 2020 our Dandenong brewery will be open for a meal or even just a few pints, with appropriate social distancing restrictions of course. Thanks for everyone’s patience over the last few months, it’s been especially wonderful receiving phone calls asking when we will be opening! We can’t wait to welcome you back. Please note, we will have new opening hours moving forward. Stay tuned!
Health and safety are our top priorities in this challenging time. Access to our on-site restaurants and bars are still limited in line with Government restrictions. Where we can, our restaurants and cafes are providing in-room menu options for hotel guests if they would prefer to dine in their own room.
Kick back with a cold craft beer at our Dandenong brewery
Brownstone Micro Brewery offers casual dining with an emphasis on freshness, simplicity and the use of quality local produce. Relax with friends or colleagues at our restaurant in Atura Dandenong by sampling some of the craft beers produced on-site and unwind after a busy day of business or exploring the surrounding area. We’re the only place you can try our carefully crafted boutique beers, created under the watchful eye of Steve ‘Hendo’ Henderson from Rockstar Brewer. Winning multiple awards across a number of beers, we recomend ordering a tasting paddle to see what the fuss is all about!
Midnight Hour – Stout
AIBA 2019 Silver Medal for Best Sweet Stout
Midnight Hour, our vanilla milk stout, delivers plenty of chocolatey goodness with a smooth creamy finish. This sweet stout is brewed with the addition of unfermentable milk sugar (lactose) that gives the beer a subtle sweetness, accentuated with hints of vanilla bean. A comforting craft beer to welcome in the darker nights.

Rusty Sailor – IPA
AIBA 2019 Bronze Medal for Best American Strong Style Ale
AIBA 2018 Bronze Medal for Best American Strong Style Ale
Bright orange in colour, and 5.8% ABV this American IPA packs plenty of punch! The all Australian malts place emphasis on being pale so the hops come forward, the hops being a mixture of both US and Australian. This gives a complex tropical fruit flavour and aroma, subtle crystal sweetness and the Centennial characterised by onion-like notes. This beer is for those that like plenty going on.
Malt: Pilsner, Munich, Light Crystal | Hops: Warrior (US), Simcoe (US), Centennial (US), Galaxy (AU)
Little Brew Peep – Pilsner
AIBA 2019 Bronze Medal for Best European-Style Ale
Little Brew Peep is a distinctly Czech-style beer. Brewed with Hallertau Northern Brewer and Saaz hops that impart a distinct herbaceous noble-hop character, this Pilsner is also made with an all-Australian malt backbone. This makes for an approachable, easy-drinking Pilsner that’s made to be enjoyed with or without food.
Malt: Pilsner, Wheat, Carapils | Hops: Northern Brewer, Saaz
Early Mark – Red Ale
The Early Mark Red Ale is a malt-driven winter beer. Brewed with English Maris Otter malt and a healthy dose of Crystal Malt, Brownstone Scotch Ale has an earthy hop character thanks to the English East Kent Goldings hops. Best enjoyed with a winter stew or game meats.
Malt: Maris Otter, Crystal, Roast Barley | Hops: Magnum, East Kent Goldings
The Skipper – Summer Ale
Low in alcohol (3.5%) but not in flavour, The Skipper is a Summer Ale designed for those long hot days relaxing and doing little…or nothing. A delicate Pilsner malt base is blended with Amarillo hops and the 7 C’s hop blend, Falconer’s Flight. Look out for notes of pine, tropical fruit and citrus. Best enjoyed on its own but with a friend.
Malt: Pilsner | Hops: Amarillo, Falconer’s Flight blend
