Modus Operandi Brewing Co

Modus Operandi Brewing Co.

With little or no fanfare, Modus Operandi opened in July 2014 in Mona Vale, Sydney. Just 3 months later, in front of a packed house almost stunned into silence at the inaugural Craft Beer Industry Awards, its owners and brewer were invited to the stage to collect the trophy for Australia Best Amber/Dark Ale, then the Trophy for the Best IPA, Then Champion Small Brewery, Then Champion Australian Craft beer, how does that happen?.

This tale began when husband and wife Grant and Jaz Wearin travelled to America on an extended vacation, touring, working and drinking at every brewery their campervan would take them on.

The holiday mixed with lots of R&D in which they studiously noted all things that made breweries good and bad they brought their ideas back to Sydney but more importantly, they brought back a brewer named DJ McCready. Together the three set about bringing the best American Style Craft beer to Australia.


Amazing Success

One of the keys to their amazing success is first impressions go a long way. So on day one they launched seven beers, cream ale, pale ale, porter, two IPAs and with that core range being supplemented by a limited release of anything from coffee lager to passionfruit saison and whiskey barrel-aged porter giving clients a fun and diverse tasting sensation.

Despite the impressive beer list angled towards the beer connoisseur, moreover they wanted the local community to enjoy the in-house environment with games, movie nights, band and great good like the Carolina reaper chilli buffalo wings.

In July 2021, Jaz and Grant began work on their newest hospitality venue in Merewether Newcastle, the large 3000sqm site has been planned to be a true landmark structure using sustainable environmental materials such as rammed earth walls and oversize limestone rocks to add to the Rustic Appeal.


The Solution

Roxset Australia is proud to have worked with the construction team at Kingston Building to provide all the floor Heavy Duty Non-Slip coatings over 3000sqm.

ROXSET SE3 Seamless Impervious HACCP Coatings were tailored to handle traffic & activity zones for;- Acid Resistance, Mechanical Impact and Hygiene and Bacteria protection in the Brew House, Grain Mill., Production Rooms, Kitchen and Cool Rooms.

ROXSET SE was then coloured to match the impressive Modus Operandi branding in Beige and White.
