Five Islands Brewing Company


The Five Islands Brewing Company was established in 2001 and is named after the five islands just off the coast Wollongong. “The Brewery” as it is affectionately known around Wollongong, is the first brewery in the history of the Illawarra. Situated along Wollongong city foreshore with spectacular ocean views, our restaurant and bar are the ideal location for a function, an enjoyable meal and a few drinks on any occasion.


All our local beers are brewed using only the highest quality malts, hops and yeasts and contain NO ADDITIVES, PRESERVATIVES OR ADDED SUGARS. The brewing cycle takes anywhere from 14 to 28 days.


The newest inclusion to the Brewery is cocktail and lounge bar, Bar 1796. It is named after the year that George Bass, Matthew Flinders and William Martin first officially landed in the Illawarra.


With trivia on Wednesdays from 6.30pm and live music Thursday nights from 8pm and Sunday from 3pm, the Brewery is fast becoming Wollongong’s most coveted night spot.
