Weston Street brewery Temple announced on Instagram this week that it is closing permanently. The last day of trade for the brewpub and its online retail operation is Sunday May 19.

Until then, the company is offering its entire range at 40 per cent off. Food and drink at the brewpub will also be discounted by 40 per cent this weekend.

Ron and Renata Feruglio launched Temple as a nomad brewery back in 2006, eventually moving into a permanent two-storey site and adding a brewpub in 2011. The label became known for its sessionable Bicycle Beer (for locals looking to mix pints with pedaling) and Anytime pale ales, as well as its limited edition brews.

It’s now the latest in a wave of independent Aussie brewery closures, with Melbourne’s Deeds announcing last week that it would be shutting up shop, and at least a dozen others – including Melbourne’s Hawkers and Dainton – entering voluntary administration in the past 12 months.

Temple Brewing’s online shop is open until midnight on Sunday May 19.
