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.


Here we go again! Hopefully this will be a short and sweet lockdown, as we try to rid the state of our pesky contagion again. We’ll be closed at least July 16-26, and will open again as soon as allowed.
Stay safe people!

Our live music events are back.

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.

During Winter we will have music most Fridays at 7pm and on Sundays at 5pm so more folks can watch and listen. If the weather is balmy we’ll move 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.
