Small tap room but has craft beer on the menu that's brewed on site. You can order a paddle and try several of the beers at once. If you like craft beer, check this little gem out.

I'd been meaning to get down to this brewery for a while and the opportunity presented itself last month. The beers were good with plenty to choose from and good quality throughout. The staff were attentive and happy to have a chat and answer questions. There was good snacks available and we had a meat and cheese platter which was... More

HI Scott, We're glad you made the time to visit us Scott - thanks for posting this review too! As you've noted, we're primarily setup as a tasting room (not a restaurant) where customers can visit the brewhouse, taste the range and hopefully grab some takeaways. The food setup is simple, yet substantial enough to complement the alcohol content of... More

I'm sorry we couldn't please you in the beer stakes - we aim to have 8 beers on offer at any one time with styles from malt-driven porters and stouts through to hop-forward pale ales and IPA's. Everyone has a... More

Took a group of Rotarians along for a tour of the Brewery. The staff made us so welcome - nothing was too much trouble. We had a fantastic evening tasting the wonderful ales and sampling lovely fresh local dips and cheeses. Can't wait to take friends there

A great little craft brewery with an excellent product. All the beers they sell are made on site and are AWESOME! !! We had their 5 beer taster paddle and they give you tasting notes and recommendations on which to drink first to last. They have a small menu range but they also have an arrangement with a local gourmet... More

Took a visit to Block and Tackle micro brewery last week and it was worth the trip. Beer selection was great and if you want a pie or food, this too was good. Small, private area for small groups to enjoy an eclectic evening with little disturbances.

Hi Macsdevo, Thanks for submitting this review and for visiting our brewery. Obviously as we're a brewery and you're someone who 'hates beer' we're probably going to struggle to offer something to your liking, but we appreciate your patronage all the same. You are spot on with the license - we have a producer wholesaler licence which heavily restricts what... More
