Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

These people have a business-and-a-half on their hands and they're doing it well.
Not JUST beer. There's something for everyone - we couldn't say that for all boutique breweries, where non-beer drinkers are left sitting like frogs on rocks bored.
Try the Ducks Fizz "Adult Soda" for something unique
They do Live Music and Woodfired pizza nights, which must be the venue to be for social nights out.
They were renovating when we were there so a little disheveled - we excused that. But NOT the sign on the gate that said No Dogs Allowed - and they has a HUGE Great Dane walking around your table in the tasting area -- - - the ONLY thing we could fault them for.

Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Very tasty beers. Yummo made to order pizza. Great atmosphere in a relaxed setting. A must visit not just for craft beer enthusiasts.

Bit of tidying/de-cluttering would give space for more patrons?

The brewery is an excellent place if you enjoy your beers, service was great and there was a variety of flavours. The negative comments are that there were a few beers that couldn’t be tested as they had run our and the price was also higher than other breweries in the area.

This place is a not too miss for locals and visitors! So much more than a working craft brewery! Try the strawberry vodka, botanical gins or award winning whiskey! Ginger beer is my favourite! The local hand crafted beers are just delicious! Looking for a light snack? Just ask the very helpful bar staff, they have you covered.

Vibes are happy and helpful and very welcoming! Prices are realistic.And nothing is a problem!

Friday nights are wood fired pizza! And they are the bomb! Perfect for this little black duck!

We went in to have a look and stayed for lunch. I did the taster and selected what I wished to try. We were greeted by one of the two Great Danes, both very friendly and well behaved. The beers I tried were all nice and purchased some to go.

I was unsure of this place as it is located in the Industrial Area but WOW what a little gem.

The beer tasting paddle was great for me as I’m not much of a beer drinker. Everyone was so friendly and we were treated like family.

The wood fired pizza oven was not operating but they cooked up some wings for us which tasted amazing.

Would recommend this place as a definite stop when in Port Macquarie.
