Our story and venue

The Brewery

Where good people meet great beer

Our story

Devil’s Hollow Brewery was born when four school friends dreamed big while on tour in South Africa.  Add a few other hospo lovers into the mix, and the brewery launched in July, 2019.

Opening Dubbo's first brewery may have seemed like an unlikely dream for some, but Dubbo is a bit like that: full of unlikely and unexpected stories. And you can explore them with us, one beer at a time.

From Flash Kate, the sly-grog slinging gangster, to Nosey Bob, the notorious hangman, to the many stories created and shared on the banks of Devil’s Hole on the mighty Wambuul (Macquarie) River...Every sip is a chance to explore with us.

Crafted for you

We're a women-led brewery, with owners Mel and Ceridwyn at the helm, and supported by a wonderful crew, including our brewer Matt and taproom supervisor Anish. Our kitchen operator, with head chef Wade do a great job of keeping our visitors well fed and caffeinated, while our crew in the taproom keep the beers flowing (responsibly, of course!).

We like to think our values reflect what you value: community, sustainability, and innovation. Because great beer can be good for the planet and it's people too.

Day-to-day, our formula is simple: we focus on craftsmanship, team empowerment and delivering top-notche service. And we have fun doing it.

What's next?

We're proud of our beers, and the place we've built in the local community.  We're excited by what's coming next, as we continue to make our mark on Australia's indie craft beer scene, especially in our region.

We want to be a local hub for the beer lovers, the coffee lovers and the food lovers of Dubbo, and a reason people come to enjoy our amazing regional city.

We're looking for more ways to collaborate with other local hospitality business and to encourage major events to come to the region (and check out the brewery while they're here).

We're also seeking ways to increase the sustainability of our venue and beer making process. And we're already on our way!

  • Our brewing waste (the spent grains from the brewing process and hops used in fermentation) is sent to local farmers for their pigs and cattle.
  • We've installed a 90kw solar system to power our 12hl brewhouse and the heating and cooling required for our internal space.
  • Our wastewater is treated by an Aerofloat pH correction system, which can be monitored 24/7 so that untreated water doesn't enter the local waterways we're so fond of.
  • Our food waste is taken to feed home farmed chooks and our coffee grins waste is collected to help produce mulch and be used in gardens.

Ready to see what all the fuss is about? Make a plan to visit us soon for local beer brewed right here in Dubbo - you know you want to!
