I am not a beer drinker but hubby is & as a local residents we often have visitors from town come down to visit - so we suggest we go here - especially after visiting the wharf markets on thw weekend .The men always enjoy trying the different brews. It is lovely sitting outside on the deck on a warm... More

This little brewery had a lot of great flavours to try and I really enjoyed all the tasters that I had. My only problem is that there was no food and nothing really close by as it's right on the Goolwa station. For responsible service of alcohol you should be able to get a few little snacks, even a bowl... More

Really good experience! A fantastic spot to sit and enjoy a cold beer with a view. Excellent beer and a good selection. Will return!

When wandering lost, hungry, and despondent in the less-than-bustling metropolis of Goolwa Beach, we thankfully happened upon this brewery tucked away on the dock just off the main street. Being from the Pacific Northwest, we have no shortage of delicious craft beer in our lives at home, and were finding the selection in Australia less than stellar. Our small group... More

Great little brewery sitting pretty much on the banks of the Murray River where if you are lucky you can see the Paddle-wheeler Oscar W, dock. The beer is good and again if you are lucky you can see the plant in progress. You can get snacks or have a nice coffee while the shoppers in the family are visiting... More

Took family from Darwin here, it is a full working brewery set in an old wharf shed down on the Murray river (good stop after Sunday markets in Goolwa) reminiscent of Little Creatures Brewery in Perth but much smaller and without the pizzas! I'm not a beer drinker, but the beer drinkers among us did a tasting, which they recommended... More

Certainly a different environment to drink a beer in. Service was great. Lots of blokes here enjoying an ale or stout. They also make very good coffee, and serve wine, for those who don't partake. Check out the Whiskey which is on its way soon.

Dropped in on a sunny friday afternoon to this quaint place. An old warehouse overlooking the water with a working boutique micro-brewery. The pick was the outside seating area with a cooling breeze and a few cooling brews. The pick of beers is limited but we tried the tasting glasses for most and found them to be very good and... More

An old wharf side warehouse that still looks decidedly industrial inside, beer bottling line in full view. A small selection of boutique beers with interesting flavours - worth a stop for a drink
