Bangalow Bowlo and Stockpot Kitchen

Three out of Six Ain’t Bad. What a cracker of a weekend. Wish it was a long one so we could have made the circuit to appreciate, love and enjoy all the local places of dining and beverageing that are serving and supporting Top Shed.

Another great night of goodness with JenJen, Big Red and the Stockpot Kitchen Crew at the Bangalow Bowlo. What a feast of the senses it was. Congratulations Shane Ironside on another hugely successful Family Fun Day at the Bowlo. And what fun it was. Just have a look.

St. Elmos Byron Bay So Good

One of the pleasures of being part of a brewery is quality control. Getting out to the places your product is being proudly served is a key part of giving good service. And speaking of good service and quality Dan Hill and I experience both last night at St. Elmos. Wow.

Lily thanks for driving us in and doing a lap while we did our work. We promise to drive next time and we can bring the whole family. Our girls just love this place.

Thanks for your goodness Chef Craig.


A little dab will do ya.


Which one’s the biggest?

Shed Sale – Sunday 21st June

Think Garage Sale only bigger and better. So much kit on offer it’s hard to know where to start. But you better start early if you are after some rare, once in a life time treasures.

We will have plenty to stir up your senses including Top Shed Coffee served non stop. Big Red and Jen Jen will be on hand making lots of yummy things with meat balls (veg and chook too).
