The Indi Brewery Review

Review by Tom Zaunmayr

Breweries are traditionally renowned as the haunch of the wealthy, cultured & sophisticated middle – upper class crew, and in many cases this holds true. There are, however, a handful that break the mould to make themselves more attractive to younger generations. The ‘Indi’ is one such brewery.

The Indi is nestled into the ritzy Mindarie Marina, a 20-30 minute drive north of Sorrento Quay. The brewery is perched out on the boardwalk, with serene views over the million dollar boats, multi-million dollar houses & stunning sunsets of our West Aussie coastline. With much of the suburban hype centering on Little Creatures, this gem slips under the radar.

The large boardwalk garden is an ideal place to relax for an hour, a day or a whole weekend. Greenery is patched around the Pine & Jarrah woodwork, adding a bit of a tropical feel as you look out over the horizon. The rear outdoors area consists of the most comfortable chairs you are likely to experience - almost beanbag like in satisfaction – and low lying tables, great for those who like to slouch whilst drinking.

There are three indoor sections, a rustic lounge area with a private bar, run-of-the-mill casual dining area in the centre of the brewery, and a formal glass & shimmering metal set up tucked away into the corner. Wherever you choose to sit, the experience will be well worth the drive.

Thankfully, to ease the pain of the fuel costs to get out there, drinks & meals are even cheaper than most uni taverns! From $10 pizzas on Tuesdays to $18 for a huge burger & chip serving with two drinks on Wednesdays, every night has fantastic specials to help keep your wallet a little heavier. The food servings are big, with very good quality ingredients. Beers are below $10 per pint – for fresh brewed craft beers and the wine list is almost 100% Australian, starting from $25 per bottle.

Saturdays and Sundays see live acoustic music setting the tone for a relaxed vibe all night long. There’s a bustling crowd for the better part of the day, getting progressively louder & more vibrant by night. The crowd is very friendly, with the 30yo+ group more than happy with younger adventurers entering the doors. There are a decent amount of 20-25 year olds around, enticed by cheap drinks and a more relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere than what is traditionally on offer in many of the more stereotypical nightspots.

With such a fantastic view, incredible food specials, amazing couches & good quality craft beer it is hard to see how anyone could not find something to like about the Indi. Unfortunately due to its location even Joondalup is a stretch if you want to go dancing later in the night. But with such a great vibe it’s not hard to have a good night full of laughs & good old “back in the day” conversations - and hey, everyone loves old memories!

A Second Review of the Indi Ocean Brewery

Review by Emma Chitty

This Mindarie pub was my choice of venue on a Friday night for dinner, drinks and the footy with my boyfriend. I’ve been to the Indian Ocean before, and have always left happy and full!

The Indian Ocean is often really busy but you’re always able to grab a seat somewhere: whether it’s inside, out the front overlooking the water or in the back courtyard. Inside, there are five long tables in the bar area that seat six people comfortably (more if you squish a bit) and standing room, as well as the Upper Lounge and the Brewery Room that can be used for functions (one of which was in full swing on Friday). The restaurant is inside, able to be booked and is just separated enough from the full-blown pub atmosphere.

An eclectic clientele frequents the Indian Ocean: quite a few people in their early-twenties as well as middle-aged couples. Groups of men and women and families mingle easily among the modern but welcoming décor: think wood floors, a big bar and a visible pizza oven. Kids are welcome; obvious by the stack of high chairs by the kitchen and the lovely staff member I saw presenting little girls with ice cream in cups. It was a relaxed and friendly vibe, complete with live acoustic music and an outlook of the harbor.

We ordered a steak sandwich ($19.50), Parmigiano pizza ($19.50) and a Salmon Rillette to share. All were yummy, although I need to learn to Google before I order – not a huge fan of the pate texture! I’ve had the pizza before because it’s so good, and although I’d never order a steak sandwich myself my ‘one’ bite was very enjoyable.

We order the Indi’s beer and cider with our meals, which I think is always the ticket if you’re at a brewery. Their own beers are $6 for a midi and $9.50 for a pint, and the cider is $4.50 for a midi and $8.50 for a pint. Wine ranges from $6.50-$8 a glass, and I counted 29 different beers on the menu. Ciders include Rekorderlig, Magners, Three Oaks and Little Creatures Pipsqueak.

I love the menu at the Indian Ocean – it’s quite basic food, but it’s well done and a lot of it is good for sharing. The ‘Grazing’ section of the menu includes mixed olives, Moroccan calamari and mushroom arancini and ranges from from $5 to $9.50, while Pizzas cater for everything you’d expect them to, ranging from $17 for a Margherita to $22 for seafood. Mains include the Indi Burger for $19.50 and fish and chips for $22.

Look out for the specials nights: Pasta Mondays, Pizza Tuesdays, Burger Wednesdays, Steak Thursdays and Pizza Fridays. They come with Indi beers or PIMM’s jugs (which I’ve had before – do yourself a favour with those!) included, and although there’s restricted times and exclusions on everything, they’re really good deals.

Overall, the venue is somewhere I would always go back to for a bite to eat and a drink, day or night. Although it might be quite out of the way for some people, it’s somewhere you can set yourself up for the night. It’s a buzzing, friendly place to enjoy the view and have a chat – and please, try the Parmigiano!
