What are your taproom hours?
We're open from 2.00 to 8.00pm on Wednesday to Sunday. We take an annual break over Christmas and New Year to catch up with family. We'll post details on our website and Instagram | Facebook when we do.
Do you take bookings?
Everyone is welcome to walk in when we're open. If you're planning to come with a large group please notify us in advance. We can reserve tables for you and run earlier or later than our usual hours by prior arrangement. We're licensed for 50 people inside and with warmer weather, 50 people outside.
Do you take dogs?
Yes, we love dogs in our taproom.
Can I bring my children?
Yes, your whole family is welcome.
Is your taproom accessible?
We have a level entrance and accessible toilet but parts of No Name Alley are still unpaved. The most accessible entrance is from Police Street, at the southern end.
What’s on tap and available in the taproom?
Check what's on tap for what we're currently selling. You can buy these same beers to take home in prefilled 32oz glass flagons and 1.25L riggers. We sanitise, purge with CO2, and fill each bottle under counter pressure for a longer shelf life.
What’s the difference between flagon and rigger?
The glass flagons (approx. 950ml) are reusable and with a tap of your phone app, can be used again and again free of charge. You save $2 each time you 'borrow' a flagon and when you return it, we'll have another ready to go (learn more).
Can I bring my own rigger or growler to fill?
Yes, we'll fill your bottle with any of our beers on tap. The cost per liter is the same as our prefilled flagons and riggers.
What is the shelf life of my rigger or growler?
Our beer is best when served fresh. We recommend that you drink our tap-filled beer within 7 days, and our prefilled beer within 3 months. Once opened you should drink it all, as air will oxidise the remaining beer.
Do you accept my returned rigger in trade for prefilled riggers?
No, we don't have the equipment to take returned riggers and properly clean them. Any riggers you buy from our taproom are yours to keep.
Do you deliver?
No, we only sell in our taproom at this time.
Do you have gluten free and vegan options?
Yes, all our beer is vegan (except when we use a non-vegan ingredient, eg. honey) and 'gluten friendly' (we use an enzyme that breaks gluten proteins into harmless peptides). We have vegan pizza and garlic bread options but our dough is made with wheat flour and semolina, containing gluten. You're very welcome to BYO gluten free nibbles!
Does your pizza contain lactose?
We use cheeses made from cow and sheep milk but have lactose free pizza and garlic bread options.
What size are your pizzas?
We sell our pizza by the slice. If you're with 2-3 friends you can order a whole tray of 4 slices (equivalent to a 12" pizza). If you're coming with a large group and plan to order snacks, please notify us in advance. We have a small kitchen and it'll help us serve you more quickly.
What time does your kitchen close?
That depends on how busy we are but usually 30 minutes prior to closing. You're welcome to BYO food at any time of the day.
Do you sell gift cards?
Absolutely. We have these available for purchase online and in the taproom.
Do you offer tours at the brewery?
No, we don't do tours at this time.
Do you take tourist/social club groups?
We don't do tours but you're welcome to visit our taproom. It's right next to where we brew, so you can't miss seeing where our beer is made. We're happy to answer any of your questions during your visit.
Events & Sponsorships
Can I hire your venue for my party/wedding/event?
No, we're not taking bookings until we get our upper floor back down and can rope off that space.
