The Wheatsheaf Hotel

The Wheatsheaf Hotel

The Wheaty: keeping beer real, wine independent, whisky odd, music live and art public since 2003. After pouring everyone else's' excellent beers for eleven years, they figured it was time to start brewing their own - time to install their own stainless and start walking the walk. So in early 2014 that's what they did; in the form of a Premier Stainless 600L Brewhouse with three single batch fermentors. Just the right size to play; enabling them to brew whatever, however, and whenever they want.

Little Bang Brewing Co.

Little Bang Brewing Co.

We're the Little Bang Brewing Company, straight from the suburbs of Adelaide. We are Fil and Ryan, and our families. We used to make video games for a living, we were nerds for games. We still are, really, but now we make beer.

We're much, much bigger nerds about beer. We talk about it, argue about it, dream about it and read about it. A lot. In 2013 we started collecting equipment, materials and tools, and over the next 18 months we designed and built a brewery in Fil's garage. It was crowded.

We prefer to create beer from scratch, using our own production equipment on our own site in our home town of Beechworth, it’s our passion, not a hobby or a chance to make a quick buck.

Holgate Brewhouse

We make our beers entirely ourselves, bold and brimming with character - carefully constructed with authentic, natural ingredients. We reckon there’s more than enough industrially-brewed beerish-flavoured bunk in the world. If that makes us beer snobs, it’s a badge we wear with pride. No preservatives. No chemicals. No pasteurisation. Just years of brewing lore and an uncompromising approach.

Mountain Goat Beer

Mountain Goat Beer

Mountain Goat started out in Dave’s backyard in the early 90′s. Dave was cranking out homebrews almost every weekend when a postcard turned up from Cam (backpacking through Canada).

Cam was travelling OS after quitting his music industry job in Melbourne. “When I turned up in Vancouver a friend took me out to some local bars serving a host of local microbrews on tap. I just suddenly got the picture and realised what Dave was striving for back home. My perception of beer got turned upside down right then and there. So I sent Dave a postcard that said something like “Dave, we gotta talk, we need to start a microbrewery in Melbourne…”

Left Barrel Brewing

Left Barrel Brewing

We are an Adelaide hills based microbrewery.

Our brewing journey commenced back in the mid 90’s when we purchased a Grumpy’s Home Brew kit and started brewing beer with best mate, Mike, in the cellar of his Father’s house in Bridgewater in the Adelaide Hills.

We quickly moved from kit and kilo to partial mashes and worked our way through the expansive list of beer kits available at the time. Our consumption of the (usually) great beer was only slowed by the wait for the next batch to carbonate in the bottle.

Matilda Bay Brewing Company

Matilda Bay Brewing Company

Starting life in 1984 as a company called “Brewtech” (very 80s) Matilda Bay Brewing Company was established by a group of local entrepreneurs all in their mid-twenties and all dissatisfied with the one-dimensional beer on offer in Australia. They purchased a small pub called the Freemasons Hotel in Fremantle, Western Australia, installed a brewery and reopened as the Sail & Anchor Hotel. The brewery at the pub enabled the guys to control the quality and presentation of the beers and talk directly to the growing legions of converts.

Old Wives Ales

Old Wives Ales

It started the way most adventures start. With a spark of curiosity and a beer in the hand. And so it was for us, Old Wives Ales founders Nathan Keatch, Mattias Isaksson, Justin Spicer and Shannon Brooks.

While appreciating a good beer, we had each gazed lovingly at the amber hues and wondered ‘how do we make this stuff’?’

Starting out as home-brewers, we commandeered soup pots for kit brews and watched on as plastic tubs of murky liquid burped and bubbled in our sheds. It was yellow, it was fizzy, but it wasn’t good. Not in the beginning. But we were learning. We have each earned a first rate home-brewing education in exploding bottles, dead yeast and beer that tasted more like cardboard than malt, taking heart from the fact that slowly but surely, the beer was getting better.

Wilkadene Woolshed Brewery

After purchasing a ‘Brewmaster 1000-2E Microbrewery from Australian company Integrated Brewing Solutions in July 2008, we began cleaning up the old Woolshed and installing the Brewery. Along with extensive upgrades needed to the power supply and building internals, we have added nearly 100,000L of rain water storage, rather than relying on filtered mains water, thus saving precious water from the River Murray. Our brewery is also a zero waste brewery, utilising state of the art designs to use and re-use hot and cold water without the need for excessive heating. Also, with drainage troughs and a holding/settling tank,  all waste water from the brewery is used on our extensive garden. All spent grain is used for livestock feed. With further recent upgrades to our solar power we now in excess of 30kw helping to power the brewery and houseboats.
