We spent a fantastic afternoon in the lower function area at a birthday celebration. We were surrounded by the fermentation tanks. This place produces a fantastic range of beers. It is very pleasurable sampling them.

More than a good pub meal due to in-house micro brewery. Well worth a visit for the beer alone however the meals are also worth trying.

A fairly new brew pub with a (somewhat) baseball theme. Food is available at the adjacent restaurant/pub. Met the very friendly owner and had enjoyable conversation with other patrons. And the beer was good!

You can tell these guys love what they do. Really nice bunch of blokes, and their beers are incredible! A big big fan of darker beers, and very fortunate that the owner does too. We're seriously so spoilt this is only 100m from home.

Went for a few pints with a friend and really enjoyed it. The service was excellent, friendly and informative. Indoors was warm and welcoming and was also aesthetically pleasing with all the beer vats. Would recommend if you want something different than your standard beer.
