The home of Two Birds Brewing, affectionately called ‘The Nest’ is located in Melbourne at 136 Hall Street, Spotswood and is an easy 5 min (450m) walk from Spotswood Train Station.
The Nest is open to the public 4 days a week, and here you will find fresh beer on tap, amazing food, takeaway growlers & squealers (these are containers not grumpy kids), the full bottle range and Two Birds Brewing merchandise!
As independent brewers, having a home that is part of the local community is important to us and something we are proud to share with our flock. The Two Birds do love to chatter as well, so when you visit, make sure you also join in on a brewery tour where you can learn more about their beers and Brewing Philosophies.
There is so much to love about The Nest, so why not drop in some time!
Our state of the art brewhouse has been designed in Canada and is definitely worth a visit. We also have our very own bottling line, tasting room and serve fantastic food. So if you want an ‘authentic’ but relaxed brewery experience why not take flight to ‘The Nest’ and see what is on offer. Tours and times book out quickly so hit the button below to book your place.
Our brewhouse is a 2 vessel 1800L DME system, designed in Canada. It has a combined Mash/Lauter Tun and combined direct fired gas Kettle/Whirlpool. We have 4 double-sized (4000L) fermenters, 6 quad sized fermenters (8000L), 4 bright beer tanks, and a pilot plant. If that’s all gibberish to you, all you really need to know is that the equipment makes good beer, is super easy to use and most importantly, it’s shiny. Also, one of our quad fermenters holds about 24,242 bottles of brewery fresh beer!
Interested in learning more about Craft Beer? We’re now running tours at “The Nest” to help with your beer education!

Tours are limited to groups 10 people, and we run tours every Saturday at 12:30pm.

“The Nest”- Brewery and Tasting Room is the home of Two Birds Brewing. The Nest is housed in a 900 square metre warehouse, that once made beer cans back in the mid 1900’s. The facade is heritage listed and features the sign from the original owners of the site, W.G. GOETZ & SONS.
The Tasting Room area that is open to the public, spans across the cosy inside front room and out into sun drenched brewery. It comfortably seats 90 and is open 4 days a week, offering all kinds of beverages (not just beer!), tasty food and a warm, casual atmosphere. Stay for 1 drink or settle in for a session.

West Coast IPA
Home is where the heart is they say. This West Coast IPA is inspired by our Co-owner Bird’s recent move all the way West to WA. Just like the black swans that glide on the river, this IPA is quietly confident with its smooth layering of tropical hops. But be ready for this large birds’ firm bitter bite!
Galaxy Hop Harvest 2019
Hop Harvest. It’s a brewer’s favourite time of year as the bright, golden green hops are ready to be picked. This is a once-a-year opportunity to brew with fresh “wet hops”, straight from the farm. For Hop Harvest 2019, we’ve brewed a straight forward Pale Ale to show off the Galaxy hop in all its glory. It has confident bitterness, balanced with a healthy hit of citrus and passionfruit.
Because we love long days and short shorts, we dreamed up a beer to capture the essence of the warmer months – a Passionfruit Summer Ale. Pale and hazy like balmy arvos, this Summer Ale uses the tropical fruit hop trio of Amarillo, Mosaic and Galaxy with passionfruit puree added to the fermenter.
It tastes like sunshine and is best enjoyed in a hammock. Or a tent. Or at a festival. Or at a BBQ, Or in a beer garden. As if you needed an excuse.
We have a high pressure filler that allows us to fill Growlers (1.89L) and Squealers (1L), which are glass vessels, so you can enjoy brewery fresh beer at home. We have special sized kegs just for this system, so the beers available for takeaway can be different to what’s on tap. Our current beers to take home can be found below.
- Piña Dorada
