Sampled a flite while waiting for lunch. Bitter was very good. The stout has oysters added in the brewing. Tasted better than it sounds. Good selection of beers all very tasty.

Just stumbled upon this place. Brewmaster was very friendly and took the time to explain the brews for us as well as explain the location and process.

While we were having lunch we sampled the brew, delicious. Hubby prefers a hoppy IPA and was pleased with what they had on tap. I tried their seasonal blueberry and enjoyed it very much

My partner tried the Oyster Stout, Bitter, and Mild beers. Really liked all of them. He brought home growlers of the Stout and Bitter. Well worth the drive!

I'm not a beer drinker but there's something for everyone here. From the dark Oyster Stout which I can vouch pairs wonderfully with Fresh oysters to a British style Bitter and on to my favourite The Blonde - perfect on a hot summer's day. An...More

We are a community driven, and destination focused microbrewery, crafting ales using local ingredients. Currently brewing out of The Henley House Pub and Restaurant. We are working on the land on Sober Island and hope to have a complete establishment there offering tours and full pints by summer 2019.
