“One for the Beer Drinkers”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

Certainly a different environment to drink a beer in. Service was great. Lots of blokes here enjoying an ale or stout. They also make very good coffee, and serve wine, for those who don't partake. Check out the Whiskey which is on its way soon.

“A Good Way to Spend a Lazy Arvo !”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

Dropped in on a sunny friday afternoon to this quaint place. An old warehouse overlooking the water with a working boutique micro-brewery. The pick was the outside seating area with a cooling breeze and a few cooling brews. The pick of beers is limited but we tried the tasting glasses for most and found them to be very good and refreshing. When you liked a particular one a pint of same quickly followed (because I wasn't the designated driver) !! Wasn't the cheapest I've visited but with the snack menu , the ambience , friendly staff and laid back customers it was a pleasant way to laze a few hours away, will be back !!

“Interesting craft beers”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

An old wharf side warehouse that still looks decidedly industrial inside, beer bottling line in full view. A small selection of boutique beers with interesting flavours - worth a stop for a drink

“Good Real Ale Beer”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

If you like real ale like I do, you will love the beer here! The price is reasonable when you consider a pint is a real imperial pint (570ml) of hand crafted real ale, compared to what you pay for a South Australian pint (425ml) of pretty average beer at some venues in the city. The staff are very friendly, informative and helpful. The location is great just behind the station on the Goolwa Warf with a fantastic outlook over the river. Just remember it is a working brewery and not the Ritz but the character of the place is great.

“Fiona and staff are tops”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

Have been to this unique working boutique brewery several times now when I have visited Goolwa.

The quality of the beer is outstanding and the surroundings are very authentic. sure the price is not cheap but you have to pay for quality.

The staff were very helpful and i noticed were very patient with an unreasonable demanding customer who should have been at one of the local pubs, not at this establishment.

A young woman, who I think is called Fiona, was clearly very competent and had the place buzzing despite the many customers.
Highly recommend if you want an authentic experience
