Absolutely. We’re open every Fri eve from 5pm. We have all our beers on tap (including one off crazy batches) and we make good pizzas too. Wed nights we also open from 5 and you can get a free tour at 6:30pm. We’re usually brewing Wed nights so it’s a great time to see, hear and smell new batches of Goat coming into the world. We’re at 80 North St, Richmond.
Yep we have some good Australian whites and reds and the excellent Two Step Apple Cider. Also have David Baker’s locally distilled specialty single malt whiskies and his gin and vodka. Soft drinks too.
The truth is we don’t actually put goats in our beer.
We like the idea of having special beers coming out in certain seasons of the year and the Surefoot really fits well with the colder winter months.
After filling more than 2 million bottles by hand we now have an automated bottling line. It has been a life changing addition to the brewery and we don’t want to hand cap another bottle, ever.
Why don’t you have bands play at the brewery?
We’d love to but we have residents living close by and we have a condition on our planning permit that says we cannot host live music.
Yes, it all started in Dave’s backyard in Elsternwick. We’ve still got somedetailed brewing journals highlighting the highs and lows of Dave’s early work. Some of his hits were the Salmon’s Runnin’ Stout, Leroy Brown Ale and the Black Dog Dark Brown.
