Since 1851 Castlemaine has been famous for two things: gold and beer. Handcrafted beers that are distinctive, traditional and brewed with passion and dedication to craftsmanship.
Years ago the founders dad Jeff and his neighbour Bill blew up the shed filled while making their homebrew. The volatile culprit was a dodgy batch of ginger beer. The boys called these ‘Shedshakers’ and they vowed to steer clear of anything a bit iffy, sticking with the traditional ales they’d been enjoying for many years.
Shedshaker Brewing, made in Castlemaine at The Taproom. Hand Crafted. Small Batch.
The Taproom is open with 8 different beers and cider, pizzas, live music and art.
