We were looking forward to visiting this establishment during our stay in the Hahndorf region.
There was simply a closed sign on the door. No indication of reopening day or date.
However their website showed it as being open, so we would try again to visit, only to be disappointed.
These days I think it is only courtesy to keep online details up to date so as not to disappoint potential customers.
The locals said it is often closed, so maybe it won't be there on our next visit?
A pity because I had heard good reviews of their beers.

It was a nice saturday lunch time. 5 of us got tasting plates cost $10 for 6. The guy behind counter was really rude.
The beers had no carbonation flat. Tasted like and smelt like dirty socks. Not a big fan.
Look each to there own opinions but thats how i felt. Try but not somewhere i would return

This was the 2nd try to genuinely try local beers etc. This is an outlet for beer brewed in Adelaide, but in a very touristy town. Cellar doors in the town were similar ie an outlet for something produced further away, but effectively selling wine. (We were asked for Aus $5 per person per glass to be tried ...... aka a bar!) Beer tasting was better as we could buy a tasting paddle - 550ml of 8 beers and 2 ciders, with notes etc. We simply bought another round after and departed, as we did not want to carry anything back of what we tasted, but is purely personal preference / taste.

We had the tasting paddle and while some of the beers tasted quite nice they were almost all flat. The bartender said this was normal but I've never had such flat beer anywhere else.

A hot and humid day in Adelaide saw us heading into the hills and we ended up in Hahndorf. Walking along the street we saw the sign for Gulf Brewery and felt like a cool ale. My two male companions had a smokey bacon beer and loved it. It had a strange smoked ham smell that they said actually worked really well with the beer - weird! :)
I had the apple scrumpy, so strong but so good! We sat on the balcony overlooking the street in the cool shade and watched the world go past, a great afternoon was had by all.
