Tell Us More

For in your face hop loaded IPAs that you typically find in the US, you’ll always find at least one or two American style IPAs or Pale Ales at Independence. They are funded by one of the co founders of brewing giants Stone Brewing Co and you’ll notice the beers here are proof of attention to detail. If you like wheat beers and lighter styles, you’ll find a German style Hefewizen and Belgian wit as well as a blonde or Saison on tap. Also look for some fruit infused beers here.

What could be better?

Get some cider on the menu perhaps. Unlike other brewpubs in the area, Independence refuse to make ciders which technically aren’t beers but taste great.

Anything Else?

Best time to go – early evening when it’s cooler and head to their outdoor deck – the best spot. Don’t forget to ask for a beer flight {sampler}. Sunday brunches here are great value for money, as is their happy hour specials on Mondays.


If you’re not sure what to order, ask for help. Most of the staff are beer geeks and they’ll be able to point you in the right direction.
