Melbourne’s 400 Gradi teams up with Great Ocean Road Brewing to create two iconic beers

400 Gradi, celebrated for its authentic Italian fare and award-winning pizza, has ventured into brewing with founder Johnny Di Francesco curating a bespoke beer selection to impeccably complement his renowned pizzas.

The newly launched Gradi Draught and Gradi Bionda Birra are easy-drinking beers that have been crafted to pair perfectly with customers’ favourite Italian dishes – and in particular, Neapolitan pizza. Crafted in collaboration with Great Ocean Road Brewing, the Gradi Bionda Birra is a refreshing mid- strength summer ale, with a crisp taste and smooth finish. The Gradi Draught is an easy-drinking lager that offers notes of freshly baked bread complemented by subtle hints of light floral hops.

The lager is now available at 400 Gradi locations in Brunswick, Crown, Mornington, Eastland, Essendon and Norwood. Find out more via 400 Gradi or Great Ocean Road Brewing.
