Hola - Abbotsford has a new brewery with a Mexican flavour
Just in time for the summer Bodriggy Brewing Company opened its doors on Thursday night for its Grand Opening in Abbotsford.



Offering 'Froffs' on tap, plus wine and cocktails with a delicious Mexican 'Foods' sharing menu with extensive vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options, this establishment is sure to be the place for your next party or function.

Bodriggy Bar


Open seven days a week from 11.30 am until late the menu features snacks, and small to large plates to complement the beer menu so you can have a 'degustation' style experience. The Froffs are divided into four 'series' Pub, Core, Hop and Limited Series.

The Staunch (New World Pilsener)


The Staunch (New World Pilsener 4.3%) from the Pub Series, has a light crisp and tropical flavour, great for summer and paired with the vegan ceviche will activate your palate.

Empanadas and vegan ceviche


The Zooter Doozy (Wine-Beer Hybrid Ale 5.2%) from the Limited Series is made from pinot gris juice and skins, with a raspberry sour finish. A nice alternative to a Rose for Summer and paired with juicy empanadas perfect for balmy evenings in the romance of moonlight, a poolside party or a day at the beach.

Big Night Big Night DIPA


For something more substantial I explored the Hop Series and enjoyed the Big Night Big Night (DIPA, 8.9%) which really impressed me. Served in a wine glass, this is like a breakfast or brunch smoothie, and paired with Aticuchos - a Peruvian beef heart skewer marinated in Aji Panca and grilled potato (divine!), and an El Cubano roast pork, ham, swiss cheese and pickle sandwich (similar to a Ruben) really sealed the deal.

El Cubano


This converted warehouse boasts polished concrete floors, with glass brick features, bar tables upcycled from beer barrels, a large cosy lounge area, with exposed beams, plants, skylights and shiny new vats.

Distillery vats


It's a large space with vintage bronze finishes and you can imagine the design options are endless for your next work Christmas party, wedding or general catch up with good friends over a 'froff' or two in the cosy corner lounge area.
