Beach Hut Brewery operate out of a large warehouse in Melbourne's eastern suburbs where they also run a taproom that's become popular with locals.
The current owners are looking to move on from the business and as a result, the brewery is for sale.
For Sale: Beach Hut Brewery
The large warehouse has all of the gleaming brewing equipment in plain sight mainly along the facing wall. And the beer has one of the shortest distances to travel from production to glass. There is a well designed refrigerated container that is the cool room and from there the beer lines head in along a long bar. Rustic industrial pallet furniture is throughout which fits in nicely with the theme as there are racking shelves with equipment along walls and even a fork lift truck parked in the corner. Seating extends though the warehouse and depending on the day out in to the car park. There is a small kitchen prep and serving area to the side of the bar and a self contained toilet block inside the warehouse.
Beach Hut Brewery has a Packaged Liquor licence off premises till 11pm and on premises till 1am with a capacity of 68. Rent comes in at $1480 a week including GST. The lease is about to expire and so any new tenant will need to negotiate a brand new lease. All the equipment in the venue comes with the sale. So any new operator can brew and serve whatever they are able to create with minimal effort.
The Beach Hut Brewery is being sold for personal rather than business reasons. It can suit either an existing brewing organisation to take it over or a new operator that wants to start up with a turn key operation and utilise the experience that is in place. The venue has been doing well in the last few months. This exclusively listed business is therefore very reasonably priced from $250,000 which is a considerable discount on having to set up a brewing operation from scratch.
