History in the Making

We are brewing at the Top Shed on Sheaffe’s Road just outside of Byron Bay.
Plans are in the works after a recent visit to Canada to get some of our East Coast Cream Ale commercially brewed in Ontario too.
If you are way out East drop into Yellow Belly in St. John’s for a taste of Liam’s latest batch of East Coast Cream Ale which has been co-named “Me ole Trout.”
