The Illawarra Brewery

Phone 02 4220 2854

The Illawarra Brewery is your favourite place to chill,
party or have a quiet one with the locals.  Every taste is
catered for at our restaurant and we have many local
brews to sample from the bar.

Situated along the Wollongong city foreshore,
The Illawarra Brewery has spectacular ocean views. 
The Illawarra Brewery’s restaurant and bar are the ideal location for an enjoyable meal and a few drinks on any occasion.  With trivia on Wednesday evenings from
6.30pm, DJs on Thursday nights, and live music on Friday
& Saturday nights from 8.00pm & 9.00pm, The Illawarra Brewery is fast becoming Wollongong’s most coveted
night spot.

Award winning local beers are brewed using only the highest quality malts, hops and yeasts and contain NO ADDITIVES, PRESERVATIVES OR ADDED SUGARS. The brewing cycle takes anywhere from 14 to 28 days.

The newest inclusion to the Brewery is a cocktail and lounge bar named Bar 1796.  Opened in March 2011, Bar 1796 is named after the year the European Settlers officially landed in the Illawarra. George Bass, Matthew Flinders and William Martin explored the south coast in their small open boat ‘Tom Thumb’ that eventually landed in Lake Illawarra.

The Illawarra Brewing Company was established in 2001 and was originally named after the Five Islands just off the coast of Wollongong.  "The Brewery" as it is affectionately known around Wollongong, is the first brewery in the history of the Illawarra.  In 2010, the new owners refurbished and re-launched the venue as ‘The Illawarra Brewery’.
