We're opening a Capital bar at Canberra airport!!!

Following two highly successful years of operation at our Fyshwick-based Brewery and Tap Room, we're spreading our wings and launching a new brewery bar at Canberra Airport by the end of this summer.

To be delivered in partnership with Australian airport food and beverage company, Airport Retail Enterprises (ARE), the bar will feature 12 taps of our much loved, locally brewed beers as well as quality local food offerings.  

The announcement comes as part of a new 1,000 sqm retail, food and beverage expansion with a focus on local produce from Canberra and the surrounding regions.

“We are excited about delivering just a small sample of what Canberra has to offer interstate and international guests” said Capital Brewing Co’s Managing Director Laurence Kain.  “Visitors to the Airport will be treated to a wide range of our core, seasonal, and specialty brews made with our pristine Canberra water just 1km away in Dairy Rd.”

The bar will be built in the southern concourse. A cafe serving Canberra’s favourite ONA coffee along with several food outlets will be created in the terminal’s Western Concourse. And a mixed news, books, travel essentials and café space will be added to the arrivals baggage hall on the ground floor. 

“Canberra has a fantastic local food and beverage scene, and we are very pleased to be partnering with many local producers to bring this to the airport. The new terminal will become a fantastic showcase of the region’s produce,” said CEO John Chapman of ARE. “We are extremely excited and privileged to be part of such a dynamic and world-class airport, and we look forward to partnering with Capital in this next stage in Canberra Airport’s journey”

The new airport bar will build on the expertise that has seen our Fyshwick Tap Room awarded Best New Venue and Best Beer Venue at the 2018 Australian Hotels Association awards,  and Best Brewery Experience in Australia by Beer and Brewer Magazine earlier this year, amongst a swag of other accolades. 

“We are committed to delivering an amazing first-experience for visitors to our Nation’s Capital” said Kain “one that leaves a lasting memory on our guest, and one that makes our locals proud.” 

Prepare for take off!!
