In the heady days of the Goldrush, Castlemaine was home to no less than 14 breweries. When the gold dried up… so did the beer. Then, Shedshaker Brewing was founded to bring beer home to Castlemaine.
The Brewery creates a range of fresh, handcrafted, small batch craft beers. Beers that are distinctive – traditional with a modern edge – brewed with passion and dedication. Amongst the offerings you can find a Pilsner Lager, Knucklehead Rye IPA, Espresso Black Lager, a Hemp Ale, Golden Ale and Cloudy Ale.
You can try them for yourself at the Brewery’s Taproom open Tuesday to Sunday, with ten taps of delicious craft beer, as well as cider, wine and soft drinks. Not sure what you’d like? Try a tasting paddle with your choice of four brews for just ten dollars.
The Taproom hosts live music every Friday night and Sunday afternoon. Other events include monthly trivia and regular author talks. It’s a great space for a function or party and a fantastic place for groups and visitors. You can even enjoy fresh gourmet pizza available Thursday to Sunday.
Shedshaker Brewing and the Taproom are located at Castlemaine’s Mill, a dynamic re-purposed industrial space home to a vintage bazaar, small goods manufacturer, ice cream parlour, Austrian coffee house, and a bustling arts and crafts precinct.
Stop by and say hello to Doug, Jacqueline and the team, your hosts at the Shedshaker Taproom. Cheers!
