Went here for the gin, and was so happy to know this was a brewery too. Though small, it’s a great tasting option and opportunity to asks some questions. Service is great and will be back if in area.

Scott and Vanessa were fabulous. Their funky labels, variety of beers, description of the individual flavours and welcoming personalities. We got a tour and a paddle of beers to taste. We’ll be back!

Have seen this beer at festivals and decided to visit the brewery while in Ballarat. A simple shopfront, in an industrial street, with an excellent range of beers. I’m not much of a beer drinker, but I really enjoyed sampling. My husband loves craft beer...More

Scott was simply the best. He obviously knew a lot about beer. He even gave me a tour around his brewery. Highly recommended stop if you're stopping by Ballarat!
