Eight years of fun at Shedshaker

Shedshaker Brewing team members Doug Falconer, Adam Perrett, Jacqueline Brodie-Hanns and Lauren Ball are pictured with some of the poster artwork from the early days of the brewery.

The Taproom at Shedshaker Brewing in Castlemaine celebrates its eighth birthday tomorrow. And like any eight-year-old would demand, the Tappy is having a party and everyone is invited!

Gone is the fairy bread and cheap soft drinks – the Taproom is wheeling out a very special Hoppy Birthday Lager on tap, a range of special dishes for the day and a retrospective look at the last eight years of Taproom fun.

Shedshaker Brewing director Jacqueline Brodie-Hanns said she looked forward to the Tappy’s birthday each year.

“We have a great time – a special beer, some delicious food and a real party vibe all day long,” she said.

“The Hoppy Birthday Lager is a treat – we picked the hops ourselves at a farm in Metcalfe owned by our new bestie Matt.

“The kitchen has planned a few tasty dishes for the day that you will have to come along to find out about.

“And we are filling our gallery wall with images from the last eight years – highlights include pics of the original fitout of the Tappy to some of the amazing bands, events and great times we have had here,” Jacqueline said.

“We have dug out some old artwork of beers gone by and some other fun posters and memorabilia.

“It will be a big fun day and we hope as many people as possible can come down and join in the celebrations.”

The Taproom will be open from 12 noon on April 25 with an Open Mic kicking off from 7.30pm.
