our beers


Our NEIPA is packed with dreamy Galaxy and Amarillo hops and finished with floral Mosaic hops, creating big tropical flavours that pack a mighty fruit punch. Expect big, thick and juicy. Soft, round and pillowy. Smooth, hazy and aromatic. It’s a beer style from the other side of the world that is right at home in Central Victoria.

ABV 7.2% IBU 15


Brewed with a big hit of REAL cherries, this kettle sour is a fun pink colour and at a touch over 4% ABV, it’s super easy to drink on a hot day. Or any day ending in ‘Y’.

Refreshing and tart (but not too sour), Shedshaker’s Cherry Sour will definitely help kick your day into gear.


ABV 4.0% IBU 15


The West Coast IPA style was the first real ‘craft beer’, born on the Pacific coast of the USA in the 1970s. With bold hop flavour and assertive bitterness, our WCIPA doesn’t hold back.

Eclipse, Centennial, Galaxy and Simcoe hops from the US and Australia pack this beer full of dank, piney resin – with a dry, grapefruit marmalade finish.

ABV 6.7% IBU 40


Generous use of Citra, Galaxy, Mosaic hops mean our Hazy Pale Ale is big on tropical fruits like passionfruit and mango, with a citrus twist and a soft maltiness and generous haze.

ABV 4.5% IBU 15


Our Golden Ale is a very easy-drinking beer  with a touch of crystal malt for a little sweetness and hopped with Goldings for a hint of nostalgic bitterness. Galaxy and Cascade are used late in the boil for a more modern aroma-driven style. Gold is crisp and fresh with a soft mouthfeel and a satisfying lightly fruity finish.

ABV 4.8% IBUs 18

The Celtic Red ale is a traditionally brewed old world beer with a modern twist. Combining the toasty toffee and caramel flavours of an Irish Red with the bright fruity and herbal notes of new world Jarrylo hops and complemented by the piney, citrus flavour and aroma of Mosaic and Chinook hops.
ABV 5.2% IBUs 32

A great Lager is all about time and our Pilsner style spends six weeks in tank to create a clean, smooth and refreshing finish with a hint of citrus and tropical fruit. With the light touch of Saaz cultivar hops this is a classic Pilsner style with a herbal nose and light straw coloured body.
ABV 4.6% IBUs 22

With a big hit of Aussie and US hops, spicy rye, hints of blood orange, black pepper, pine and tropical fruit, there’s a lot going on in our Knucklehead Rye IPA. Great mouthfeel with balanced bitterness and a lingering malty backbone. The Three Stooges would be proud.
ABV 6.2% IBUs 54

Our Espresso Black Lager blends the planet’s two favourite drinks in a union of organic, ethically sourced Tiger Mountain Arabica coffee (from our friends at Coffee Basics here at the Mill), dark malted barleys and the spicy hit of American hops. Set black yet surprisingly light, full flavoured and refreshing, this schwarzbier style lager is chocolaty, rich and a little addictive. Now available in 375ml cans.

ABV 5.2% IBUs 27

In 2015, we celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the release of Doug’s band Hunters & Collectors’ classic album Human Frailty. With a golden hue from the light touch of biscuity American malts and the tingling citrus aroma of Chinook, Cascade and Centennial and dry hopping using (what else) Falconer’s Flight – a blend of Citra, Simcoe and Sorachi Ace hops. Now available in 375ml cans.

A party in a glass. We wanted to make a classic Aussie all rounder – very sessionable and a fantastic beer with food. The Grail is all about big fruity hops with a clean refreshing finish. Brewed in Castlemaine using all Australian Galaxy hops and Triticale – a wheat and rye cross – which gives the Grail its distinctive haze.

ABV 4.6% IBUs 20. Now available in 375ml cans.

Robust Chocolate Porter – just like a chocolate milkshake, only smoother! We’ve ramped up our usual brown porter with a bigger malt base and freshly roasted cacao nibs from our neighbours at Cabosse & Feve Chocolates to make this complex winter warmer. The usual chocolate malt notes are accentuated by the bittersweet cacao nibs to give hints of leather and tobacco with some sweet caramel notes and a touch of woody spice to really round out the experience. Drink slowly from a wide-mouthed glass to allow the viscous brown liquid to warm gradually (so that each sip tastes slightly different) and savour the journey, all without leaving your fireside.

ABV 5.3% IBUs 25 Available in 330ml bottles in the cooler months.


A Belgian-style strong ale with spicy clove, peppercorn and allspice notes that pack a yeasty punch. Dubbed the “Wolf in sheep’s Clothing”, it drinks like a 5%er, but careful on the stairs. Available in 330ml bottles.
ABV 8.5% IBU 20
