BODRIGGY.BEER

Bodriggy Brewpub is a brewery-home located in Abbotsford culminating in a brewery, brewpub, cocktail bar and one day soon, Froff Shop (bottle shop).

Once upon a time an Auto LP gas converter, the space has been homebase (and basketball court) to Bodriggy since the beginning.

Bodriggy beer officially launched in 2016 but only started brewing on site in 2018. Our current address, 245 Johnston Street, was one of the first LPG conversion centres in Australia and ran for nearly 40 years. It took the best part of three years to set the entire brewery and venue up to the point in which you see it today.

Abbotsford born and bred, the name itself comes from the original stone mason façade. To us, it reflects unique Aussie lingo and represents the area perfectly.

We’re a locally focussed business; all the beer we make is with the Abbotsford community in mind. As a culturally driven bizness , we assimilate with the arts and music scene as much as possible, including sponsoring events, gigs and exhibitions mostly around Melbourne’s inner north.

5 questions with Bodriggy

HOW DID BODRIGGY BREWERY COME TO LIFE?

Pete, Jon & Anth already owners of Dr Morse liked the idea of
brewing their own beer and as they discussed the potential of
opening up their own brewery they looked up from a table at Dr
Morse to see the LP garage opposite up for lease, it was a sign.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE LIGHTNING BROADBAND FOR BODRIGGY?

We chose Lightning Broadband because they have a proven track
record of providing the fastest internet in Melbourne. We have
quite a complicated set up at Bodriggy and the way they worked
through all of that with us was awesome.

WHERE DID THE NAME BODRIGGY ORIGINATE FROM?

Bodriggy draws its name from the building it inhabits. While the
lettering above the entrance offers up its former life as an auto
service centre, it once served as a stonemasons villa, known as
Bodriggy Villa, and that name can still be found on the roof of the
building.

WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO BEER?

The Bodriggy brew team are always creating exciting new brews
but one of the cores and an easy go-to is Speccy Juice Hazy
session IPA. It’s a beer that is authentic to Abbotsford. Take a look
at the Speccy Juice cans and you'll find all manner of local
references.
