Opened in April 2016 at the Mill complex in northern Castlemaine, the Taproom is open six days a week serving delicious beverages, yummy food and beaucoup conviviality.


The Taproom is open for on-premises consumption – albeit with limited numbers. We can only have 50 people inside at any time, so please book to ensure availability (0487 860 060). We are able to seat another 60 outside (weather permitting) so if it’s not raining we have much better capacity.
As per government regs, we will need to get your name and phone number – we use a QR code system but there’s a paper based record if you prefer.  Masks are no longer mandatory but please observe social distancing.
Congratulations Victoria!

Our live music events are back.

Tired of having no music in the Taproom, we decided to embrace the challenge. We live-streamed music Fridays and Sundays all through August/September! These are available to watch on our Facebook page and our YouTube channel.

From now on we will have music outside most Fridays at 7pm and on Sundays at 5pm so more folks can watch and listen. If the weather is inclement we’ll move inside.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page to see what music is coming up.
