Every Saturday we hand over the Brewery to the public so that you and your beer-loving friends can come in and brew your very own beer in a real brewery! Don't worry, you don't have to have any brewing experience, we have taken all the guesswork out of making your very own beer and our expert brewers will be by your side the whole way to guarantee you get the most perfect, freshest beer every time.

Cost of the brew ranges from $208 - $258 depending on the beer you choose, you can have up to 4 people in your brewing party at no extra cost, there will be free beer to sample on the brewing day so make sure that you choose a designated driver prior to arrival. After 2 – 4weeks your beer will be ready, you will have 50L of beer to take home, you can bring your own clean bottles or you can purchase your first batch on the bottling day for $85 (144 x 330ml bottles), these can be reused on subsequent brews.

We will have a selection of beers on-tap for you to sample so make sure you choose your designated driver prior to arriving. Our expert brewers will take you through measuring out your ingredients and also the brewing process, please allow 1.5hrs.
Fermentation / Filtering / Carbonation
Now that you have brewed your beer and added the magical yeast you will leave your wonderful creation with us for anywhere from 2 - 4 weeks depending on the style of beer.
Your brew will be moved to our temperature-controlled fermenting room where is will remain for 10 days, this is the fermentation stage where the temperature will be perfect for the yeast to do its magic. After the fermentation process, your brew will be moved to our cool room for anywhere between 4 - 18days depending on the type and style of beer, this is where it will grow all its flavour and body characteristics. The final process is the Filtering and Carbonation, the day before your bottling or keg pickup date we will triple cold filter your beer and carbonate it.
Bottling Day / Keg pick up
All the hard work is over, it is finally time to taste your personally brewed beer
If you are lucky enough to have beer on tap at home you will simply pick up your keg(s). For the bottlers this is when you will want to bring your mates, you can bring your own clean bottles and we will sterilise them firstly or you can purchase a full set of bottle from us for $95, you can then reuse these for your next brew. A bottling bench will be reserved for you and your beer tapped to the wall ready for filling and a bottle capper and caps will be provider, our staff will show you how to use all the equipment, you will be an expert in no time.
