Along with beer, the new venue will be offering spirits, wine and a selection of food. “As you might expect, there will be plenty of beer up for grabs in the new venue, with fresh kegs shipped directly from PL’s brewery in Port Adelaide,” Cameron continues. “The core range (including pales, IPAs and stouts) will fly the flag, while limited releases will be interchanged regularly to keep punters entertained. Punters can expect fruit sours, barrel-aged imperials, and a cheeky nitro or two.”

“We envisaged a rotational menu that explores the diversity of our neighbouring local market stalls and seeks inspiration from fresh and local ingredients,” says Jack. “We love cooking over fire, so anticipate charred goodness.”
