Fresh, independent, local craft beer.
Why 3 Griffins? This is why…
3 Griffins Brewing was created out of necessity.
We are a 100% family owned and managed Australia nano brewery in the Boroondara Municipality to the east of the Melbourne CBD. One of the quirks of our location is that we are located in a ‘dry zone’ which doesn’t allow any fully licensed venues, such as pubs or clubs, so we had to make our own beer. Unfortunately it also means that we can’t sell our craft beer on-premise, which is why we have this website, so we can share the small batch goodness with our craft beer loving friends.
One day we will grow up and be big enough to leave home and find a venue that will allow us to sell our hand crafted beers straight from the brewery door. But not yet.
We use predominantly Victorian premium single source malt and don’t add any sugar in the brewing process, unlike some commercial breweries. We prefer to rely on the malt and yeast to create the craft beer magic.
And why are we called 3 Griffins? Simple. There are 3 Griffins on our family crest. The Griffin is a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle, and denotes strength, courage and leadership.
3 Griffins Brewing is a proud member of the Independent Brewers Association (IBA) and we support the Responsible Service of Alcohol.
Oh, and no brewery would be complete without a brewery dog. Ziggy (our brewery dog) likes to protect the valuable brewing equipment with all the fierceness of a border collie with no sheep to round up. Ziggy would chase the 3 Griffins if he could.
