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

Winter already, but still great beer drinking weather.

We’re open Tuesday to Sunday from 12pm and bookings are still recommended, especially on weekends and public holidays. Click the button below or call 0487 860 060 (please don’t text, we don’t always see those).


Our pizza, plates and platters menu is available in-house from 5 on Tuesdays and every other day from 12pm. We have a rotating selection of special pizzas, share plates and salads.
* 15% surcharge applies on public holidays when we pay our staff higher rates.



We feature FREE live music every Thursday (Open Mic), Friday 7.30pm and Sunday 5pm. Check Facebook page for details.


The Taproom is easily wheelchair accessible – please use the link below or call us to arrange a good spot – 0487 860 060.

During COVID

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 that year! These are available to watch on our YouTube channel.
