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


We’re open again, with pretty crunchy numbers limits – only 10 inside and 30 outside – so bookings are absolutely recommended. Call 0487 860 060 (don’t text, we don’t always see those).

Hang in there, Victoria!

Our live music events are back soon.

Tired of having no music in the Taproom in 2020, 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.

With the current numbers limits, music is unfortunately still off the agenda but we will bring it back on Sundays in late October. We’ll also bring back the popular Open Mic sessions on Thursdays once we can get a few bodies in the room, or the weather gets conducive outside.


The Taproom is easily wheelchair accessible – please call us to arrange a good spot – 0487 860 060.

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