I thought long and hard about making this one public, as I think it may be Melbourne's best kept secret! A brewery with kids toys galore and a jumping castle! Seriously on walking in, I thought – this is like a playcentre – but licensed!
The Colonial Brewing Company is located in Port Melbourne and is in quite a large building which is divided into three areas, so those who don't have children can escape them. In one area, close to the bar is a huge jumping castle and heaps of kids toys, blocks, colouring and even little trikes for the kids to ride on!
Every Saturday the Colonial Brewing Co play the AFL live on the huge projector screen and a selection of food trucks on site for you to enjoy. And obviously craft beer (they also sell wine etc for those that don't like a beer). Such a great place to catch up with friends where both the kids and parents can have a great time!
Seating is on large bench type tables and there is plenty of space near the kids area and they do take bookings. They are open Thursday 12-6 , Friday 12-late and Saturday 12-6
