These guys state Beer is good, hell, it’s great. But wine is also really, really good.
As they have over 50 beers ranging from classic international styles to far out experimental tomfoolery there’s something for everyone!
But then they also say Beer is good, and wine is good, but GIN is reeeeally gooood.

These guys also make their very own gin as they hooked up local gin legends, Prohibition Liquor, to create a series of small batch gins with a Little Bang Twist – why not have a taste and see what they’ve come up with?

Then it’s off to Big Shed Brewing for lunch* and tastings.

With beers such as frankenBROWN, F-Yeah, Californicator and Kol Schisel to their core range this should give you an idea of the hospitality to expect with these guys. 

As they have a tasting bar and kitchen which comprises of 6 taps and food that goes with their beer and yes you can eat with your hands, this may be a good stop for lunch and the’re happy to be slinging brews and food to eager locals and visitors alike so we’re pretty sure you’ll fit right in!!

Our last stop will  be at Pirate Life with twenty-four beers on tap, food options if you’re still peckish, and a awesome crew that’s raring look after you – we’re sure you and your mates will love this!!
Then when the tim comes we head back to your original pick up location, no doubt with a couple of 6 packs of your favourite!
