Went with a friend for a beer. Plenty of beers to choose from and they nearly always have something new to try.

Good beer and ambience. Definitely return soon.

American Style Brewery with a Twist
Mar 2021 • Friends
Planned with my mate a late Sunday evening hang out and sure the name lived upto the expectations. Very contemporary brewery style settings and more american style, which do serve good food for a fact besides just 🍻.

Beer : Tried Hazy IPA, Jungle Juice, West Coast and Apocalypso Beers which were fantastic. Hops are pretty balanced and no bloating in stomach which is fantastic. Highly Recommended to have Apocalypso (Pint) as it's solid. Do check with staff for when they take last Orders as they prefer to serve Pots or middy, due to time constraints (something unusual but okay)

Fries : Yummy fries, can't say they could have done anything else.... goes good with 🍺.

Mediterranean Pizza : Very well made pizza and actually lives up to the name. Garden veggies and base pretty good (assuming if they make their own pizza base)

Nashville Spicy chicken Wings : Spicy food lovers like myself had asked for super spicy wings and booiii it had us going, hot, spicy, cooked red to perfection. Man we're sweating and it made us unstoppable to eat and drink more....Thumbs up Guys for chugging out these wings.... I'm so planning to come back and had these wings again.

Jalapeno Poppers : Such an understatement when you think about then but that's the twist, it tasted so damn amazing that it perks your mood. Just perfect taste and temperature. Wow is simply the word to describe it.

Staff : Friendly and easy going and considerate.

Would suggest them to serve 🍺 in jugs too as that can be a bonus to have merrier time ( just a thought) Highly Recommended this brewery, would be returning soon with my wolfpack...Keep up the good show guys.

Birthday function, excellent venue, beer and food.
Mar 2021
Birthday function for our friend. Upstairs function room is comfortable and has good view of brewery etc. Beers are top quality and food, mainly wood fired pizzas are very tasty. Service is pretty good as well. Really enjoyed the visit and will return. Bought some take aways. They brew a 0.9% pale ale which is great for the designated driver as well. Thank you.

Birthday
Mar 2020
Recently celebrated a birthday at this venue which was booked in advance as food was to be catered for by the venue. We were a group of 35 so were able to use the upstairs area. We were able to view the huge brewing vats and its was pretty cool. There was plenty of room for us all and on our arrival the table had platters of a selection of different cheeses crackers grapes and cold meat. during the evening staff delivered delicious finger food of hot fat chips which were simply (voted by everyone)the best chips we had eaten. Servings of delicious hot crumbed Calamari and chicken wings with little dips and yummy small pizzas were served throughout our 3 hours. Staff were friendly and efficient this was the perfect venue for our group. I would highly recommend this place especially for that small private family gathering. They do have a band sometimes but not on the night we visited. the setting inside is quite dark but nicely decorated and there were lots of tables and seating downstairs.According to the beer drinkers in our group the beers were quite unusual with fruity flavors probably not everyones cup of tea but it was worth trying. All in all it was a lovely little place. Ill give it a 8/10.

Great atmosphere and food

First off I have to admit I hate beer and only went here for a birthday lunch with my husband. It wasn’t a great start to the visit. They’ve got jasmine growing out the front. I’m highly allergic and immediately became ill. It got worse when Hubby insisted I try the four beers on a beer paddle. Still don’t like them! But he does, so that’s a win for all beer lovers.
The food menu is small, catering for mainly wood fired pizzas. Our table of four shared two pizzas and a cheese board. The food was beautiful. The pizzas were thin and crisp, and the toppings generous and tasty. They were seriously good, possibly the best I’ve had. The cheese board featured three different cheeses, the nicest quince paste I’ve ever had, two types of crackers, nuts, olives and pickles. Definitely worth the price.
The building itself has an industrial feel and is very cute. There’s ample parking and plenty of tables to sit and enjoy.
Will I be going back? Not until they get rid of that jasmine!

Great location, great beer, great snacks

Went for a few ales with some friends and had a great night out. The wedges were well cooked, pizza tasty and the beers ice cold. The Pilsner wasn’t quite to my liking, however the Pale and IPA are exceptionally good. Settle in for a few pints, some wedges/pizza, some mates and a good yarn.

Not sure it lives up to the hype
Apr 2019 • Couples
Thought we’d try something a little different for a change and try the local brewery. They have a range of beers on tap, a cider untried and a limited selection of wines on offer. Beer tasting plates are available at $20. Stick with the beers!
Two pizzas the spicy supreme and the vegetable with mozzarella cheese were both very good as was the service.
The pizzas and four small beers came to $69 in total. As an added bonus they also had some live music on Friday night competing with those watching the footy on the big screen tvs.
Range of seating inside and a few outside.
Being in a factory it maybe a bit cool in the winter months.
Ok for a night out and something different but I’m not convinced we will be regulars.
