Atomic Beer Project is Redfern’s latest microbrewery, workspace and restaurant

Western Australia’s Gage Roads Brewing Co is opening its very first venue in Sydney. Situated in the heart of Redfern, Atomic Beer Project brings an innovative concept to the hospitality scene with a microbrewery, workspace and restaurant.

Set in in a contemporary warehouse and visually setting the scene with giant stainless-steel tanks of fresh beer, the venue captures a unique setting as a brewpub.  With upper levels for dining space, the venue also accommodates a workspace climate including convenient ammenities such as unlimited wifi, tables with USB and power sockets and of course all day menus, coffee and fresh beer are available.

“One thing that’s really unique to Atomic Beer Project is our workspace. We open early for coffee, and give people a chance to work in a truly unique environment. I mean, who wouldn’t want to work in a brewery for a day! We’ve got dedicated space and all the bits and pieces you’ll need to work remotely, with the benefit of good coffee, fresh beers and tasty food all on site,” explains Clint O’Hanlon at Atomic Beer Project.

Having all beers brewed on site, expect a variety of fresh ales including their 3 core range beers, Atomic pale ales, Atomic XPA and Atomic IPA along with seasonal brews, limited releases and experimental brews. Head Brewer, Nick Ivey says, “The beer menu is made up of our 3 core range beers (Atomic Pale Ale, Atomic XPA and Atomic IPA) and 5 rotating taps with limited release beers that allow us to flex our creative muscles.”

On the menu, head chef Jordan McLeod who’s worked in Pan-Asian kitchens around the world such as the likes of Longrain Tokyo, brings to the menu South-East Asian-inspired dishes with seasonal changes. Jordan talks us through the inspiration behind the menu, “I believe craft beer like ipa’s, pale ales, and xpa’s pair best with spicy Asian food. The beers help cut through the rich, salty, sweet and sour of our food, but also sooth the palate from the heat of chilli.”

For appetisers, diners can expect the Indo China with Porter Braised Beef Cheek Croissants with Coriander, Shallots, and Fermented Chilli, Grilled Pork Belly Skewers with Shichimi Togarash or their Turmeric Pork and Kaffir Lime Sausage Rolls with Tamarind Ketchup.

If you’re wanting some big share plates, carnivore lovers can indulge in their Chargrilled Riverine Sirloin with Coriander and Green Chilli Chimichurri, Mussaman Curry of Lamb with Pearl Onions and Crispy Potatoes or their Pork and Squid Salad with Peanuts and Nuoc Cham. Whilst vegetarians can delve into their and Southern Yellow Curry of Roast Cauliflower or Thai Eggplant and Snake Beans.

Whilst focused on their freshly brewed beers on site, they also have a curated wine and spirits list that support local suppliers and distilleries sourced from the Redfern neighbourhood and surrounds including, Brix, Poor Toms and Archie Rose.

Atomic Beer Project is open Monday – Sunday 10am – Late. For more information, head on over to Atomic Beer Project.
