I went to the new Moon Dog Brewery in Footscray and it's highly recommended!

The much hyped Footscray brewery is finally open from today following a controversial planning issue over a store front fire hydrant.

The Melbourne Moon Dog Brewery Story

Founded in 2010 in Melbourne by brothers Josh & Jake Uljans and school mate Karl van Buuren, Moon Dog began with a small brewery in the inner city suburb of Abbotsford. The trio first began brewing beer using ex-dairy equipment which was welded together!


More than a decade later, they’ve made some upgrades to the equipment and expanded into the suburbs of Preston and Footscray, with a continued focus on brewing super delicious beers (they make good seltzers too)!




Drinks and Food

The venue has over 100 taps serving Moon Dog brews, of course. My recommendation is the brewery exclusive "Juke Box Hero West Coast IPA". Other drinks include wines by the glass, classic cocktails, alcoholic slushees and “Cowboy Shots”. The food menu extends the brand’s interpretation of the Wild West theme, with pub classics and a tex mex influence. Menu links:

The Suburb of Footscray and Getting There

Footscray is a vibrant and multicultural suburb located just 5 kilometers west of Melbourne's city center. It is known for its diverse community, bustling markets, and eclectic dining scene.


Footscray has a rich history shaped by waves of immigration, particularly from Southeast Asia, therefore making a quick stop at a Pho restaurant also very worth it.


Moon Dog is a short walk from Footscray Station. It's approximately a 15-minute train ride to Footscray from one of the city stations using the Werribee, Williamstown or Sunbury Google Map: https://maps.app.goo.gl/9t6XDimgitsZ14Gi6




My Final Rating

This place is a 5/5 for me! A great place to grab a drink with close mates or host an event! Also, a good opportunity to visit the West side of Melbourne and what it offers in terms of diversity and culture. Our Melbourne Tours
