Bodriggy operate an impressive and multifaceted home in Abbotsford that has a brewery, cocktail bar, pub, music venue, Froff Shop and front bar all in one. 

If you'd like to lead all things beer for them, they're hiring a head brewer. 

Job Description: Head Brewer

Bodriggy Brewpub is a new brewery-home located in Abbotsford culminating in a brewery, brewpub, cocktail bar and recently, Froff Shop (bottle shop) slash Front Bar. Founded in 2016, the wholesale operation has since flourished and the venue has opened to great fanfare with 40 + wonderful staff (or family) onboard.

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.

As a small, independent, Australian owned business, we’re dedicated to the local community and making darn-good ice cold froff. All the beer we brew is with the Abbotsford community in mind. ‘Freshness' is our number one focus and part of our distribution strategy. You can expect a constant interchange of out-there, hoppy IPAs and sour limiteds every 3 weeks, alongside the core-range favourites.

Culturally, we assimilate with the arts and music scene as much as possible, including sponsoring events, gigs and exhibitions mostly around Melbourne’s inner north. Weekly, our brewpub hosts a high rotation of bands, DJs and events throughout the venue.
