Holgates in Woodend, & Rifle Brigade in Bendigo are 2 good ones around my area in central Vic. But a fortnight ago went over to Grumpy's in South Aus. That was well worth the trip, to meet Grumpy 1&2 & the goat
;) :blink: ;)

The Port Dock Brewpub in Port Adelaide.The preacher which is a dark ale and a ripper IMHO is well worth a taste.

The last brewpub I went to was the Duckstein, the beers were average, the food sensational.

I sadly haven't tried out too many of the others outside of Perth city/Freo, but who can go past Little Creatures without stopping in for a pint or 6?

Yes I must confess that LC is one of my all time favourite drops. Has any one heard of any Brew Pubs in the Hunter Valley region of NSW?

I don't think there is any in the Hunter Peter. I know The Brewery in Newcastle used to be but they worked out they could earn more money by turning the space into another bar......

But i would be interested to know if there are any up the hunter to.

There is a micro at the Hunter resort which is also the blue tounge brewery, but they dont brew there yet. I think they are going to brew seasonals there.

As for brewpubs, im a fan of the Shark oil at the Five Islands Brewing Co. in Wollongong. Food there is quite good as well.

I haven't yet been there but I have recently stumbled upon website:

www.redoak.com.au

and its a boutique beer cafe who brews there own brand.

Looks good and the food looks good too!


Also Kingley's Schnitzel and Ale house in Woolloomooloo is a great place for a beer and bite to eat (but not a brew pub). They also have a wall of fame where if you drink 12 steins (i think, maybe its 10) in a month, you get your name up on the wall and a free Kingley's Stein. Did I mention the food is excellent!!


mmmmmmm stein :chug:

Hi There,

Got told today at work, I'm going to North Carolina in a couple of weeks time, and decided to have a look to see if there are any brewpub there. I found this one.

I think I'll have to stop in for a couple.


Cheers,
Jase

Im with Snow - the ox (oxford 152) is my local. their beers are great and if you can get there before lunch on a weekday, you can speak with the brewmaster -
a Canadian guy who is so enthusiastic about beer its hard to stop him talking!
Dunno about poor atmosphere though - theres a great modern jazz band on thursday nights and plenty to look at!
By the way - its located at Bulimba on Oxford street

I guess, I just got the feeling they treat it more as a snazzy restaurant than a watering hole. Nothing wrong with snazzy restaurants, of course. I've only been there for lunch a couple of times, so I admit I haven't sampled the nightlife there....

Yeah, it isn't my idea of good atmosphere. Metros tend not to appreciate beer.
