Not just a night out

The small team at Temple Brewing thought they were just going for a night out when they attended the Australian International Beer Awards in Docklands in May.

Managing director Nick Pang said the expectation of being awarded was low, so when their “Anytime IPA” pale ale was announced as a gold medalist (out of 180 worldwide beers), the team was ecstatic.

After all, they’d only been making beer for 18 months, so being awarded gold was like a dream coming true.

“There were only two gold medals awarded in the pale ale category, so we were well placed to win the Best International Pale Ale award,” Mr Pang said.

“When the MC called our name, we just went ballistic,” he said. “To take out this award against the best brewers in the world was a truly humbling experience.”

Mr Pang bought the East Brunswick-based brewery from a liquidator 18 months ago.

Recruiting top brewer Glenn Harrison and applying strict business principles has turned the company around in a rags-to-riches story. New beers have been added to the repertoire and production has been cranked up to get the best out of the small, state-of-the-art brewery in Weston St.

Temple entered six beers in the Australian International Beer Awards and five of them were awarded medals.

“Apart from our pale ale triumph, we brought home three silvers and a bronze,” Mr Pang said.

Temple’s signature Bicycle Beer took bronze for the Best English Style Summer Ale,

with silver medals going to its Powerstance pilsner, New World Order stout and the Rye Hard IPA for the Best German Style Pilsner, Best Stout and Best IPA (other), respectively. This year, the worldwide awards attracted a record number of applicants from 35 countries.

“It is a real credit to our team and the hard work everyone has put in. For a small brewery in Brunswick to receive this recognition only one and a half years after launching is amazing,” Mr Pang said.

“We are all about brewing great quality Australian beer that’s fresh and balanced. I’m so proud of Glenn and the team.”

Temple Brewing beers are available in the CBD at Thousand Pound Bend, Sister Bella, Mesa Verde, Cookie Bar, Spice Temple and Three Below – City Square.

Temple Brewing has a bar and restaurant at 122 Weston St, Brunswick East and is open on Thursdays between 5pm and 11pm; on Fridays and Saturdays between 12 noon and 11pm; and on Sundays between 12 noon and 9pm. The business is closed to the public on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
