Zierholz Brewery eyes Kingston

Brewer Christoph Zierholz hopes to move his Fyshwick brewery and bar to the planned new arts precinct adjacent to Kingston’s busy bus depot markets.

Zierholz describes the proposed move, currently under negotiation, as “an exciting prospect”.

Should the move come to fruition, Zierholz hopes to establish with the brewery a beer hall where he can, “showcase not just my beers, but others from Canberra and surrounding regions”.

The ideal location, he says, suits brewing on the quiet days, Monday to Wednesday, with the prospect of large visitor numbers later in the week – especially over the weekend when the bus depot markets opens.

Zierholz’s plans come on top of a busy year for Canberra craft brewers. Lachlan McOmish’s Wig and Pen expects to move from the city to Llewellyn Hall in September and Richard Watkins’ BentSpoke opened in Braddon in June.
