G’day we are Matt and Mark, your local Penrith craft brewers. In 2007, Rusty Penny began in a Cranebrook garage. Although back then it was not called Rusty Penny, or anything for that matter. It was just a space where we began crafting awesome beers for our friends and families and never dreamed that our hobby would take us on this journey.
In the beginning we would always joke about opening a brewery, however, as the years went on and the beers kept getting better it went from a joke to a crazy idea.
In 2016 that crazy idea started in motion, when we found our space in Dean Place Penrith and signed our 1st commercial lease. It all happened so fast and we quickly realised that we did not have a brewery or any money to buy one.
So then came All Things Homebrew. It made sense as it was the hobby we knew so well to sell homebrew supplies and impart the knowledge on others. We set up some wholesale accounts, started a Facebook page and we were in business.
It took us two years and a lot of hard work, but by the end of 2018 we were set up as a brewery, had our licenses and were DA approved to open our doors.
We love our tiny brewery now in a slightly bigger garage, where we can share our brews with everyone in our home town of Penrith and surrounds.
We look forward to seeing you in the taproom soon.
