The Beers


BLACKMAN’S – Unfiltered Lager

A proper craft lager. Simple, unfiltered and bang-able, the way lager should be. Subtle malt, with a light lemony hop character and dry finish. Inspired by the delicious, unfiltered lagers of the underground cellars in Czech Republic and beer gardens of Munich.

Stats: 4.6% / colour: 10 EBC / bitterness: 28 IBU
The head of the family



An eccentric Belgian style Witbier, made using a blend of malted wheat & barley. Traditional meets contemporary with a spice-mix twist comprising of toasted lemon zest, coriander & coconut added late in the boil. This cloudy, refreshing beer is balanced between tart & sweet.

Stats: 4.3% / colour: 4.7 EBC / bitterness: 15 IBU
Eccentric oldest brother, with a mongrel pound dog called Noddy.


Ernie – Golden Ale

Ernie is a golden all-rounder made with sessionability & Sinatra in mind. Light in body & colour he features a blend of Australian grown aroma hops in Ella & Galaxy. This gives the beer a distinct floral – grapefruit aroma with medium bitterness.

Stats: 5% / colour: 10 EBC / bitterness: 28 IBU
Youngest brother, who fancies himself as a bit of a Frank Sinatra.


Reginald – IPA

In your face, big, fruity and bitter India pale ale. Prominent citrus, peach and pine aromas jump from the glass and fill your nostrils with every sip. Followed with a medium malt body that’s surprisingly smooth for such a big, angry beer!

Stats: 6.2% / colour: 14.2 EBC / bitterness: 65 IBU
Middle brother, Reg was unsuccessfully sued by his mother for throwing dinner at the wall!


ARTHUR – Smoked Porter

Smokey, dark, rich and smooth. A classic English style with the added awesomeness of smoked malt from Bamberg in Germany.

Stats: 6.3% / colour: 80 EBC / bitterness: 40 IBU
Lost his eye in the war, came close to ending the Blackman legacy. Was said to keep his glass eye in his pint at the pub when he went to the loo, so as to protect his beer.



Special single batches, exploring different beer styles from around the world – each with their own unique Blackman’s twist.


Winnie – Cider

Cloudy, fruity, left of centre, unfiltered cider, Winnie is a little bit C-R-A-Z-Y! A dry style, that has a tart effervescent finish.

Stats: 4.6% / colour: 6 EBC
Protective mother of the 3 brothers. Approach with caution. She sleeps with a knife under her pillow!

The Venue


In the surf coast town of Torquay, 500 metres from the beach, we’ve created a spot for you to come and taste some quality brews and catch up with your friends and family. Our all-day kitchen is open whenever we’re serving you beers.

We’ve developed this share style, beer-food menu in conjunction with Chef Mitch from Beersine to complement Blackman’s hand crafted beers. Mix and match from our bites such as beer battered fish tacos or spent grain meatballs, settle in for a pizza and look out for our changing specials, like sticky beef ribs with stout jus and pulled pork bau.

The Brewery

Out the back, in what used to be a kid’s games room, is our pride and joy. The Brewery equipment is a Canadian made setup, showcasing beautiful copper and stainless steel which can be viewed through the glass at the end of the hallway and beer garden. Renn spends his days in here making the magic happen, and the best thing is you’re welcome to join him.

Public brew days and brewery tours

From 12noon till 4pm on every second Sunday of the month, you can come and learn how Renn brews the beer – send an email to info@blackmansbrewery.com.au to let us know you’re coming along.

We’re giving Brewery Tours at 4pm daily for up to 10 people. So let us know you’re keen and we’ll add you on the Brewery Tour list.
