Sow and Piglets Brewery Facebook

Way, way down South – just about as far as you can go whilst remaining civilised – there is a new craft beer that puts the wreck in shipwreck – the ahh in ahh yeah! Brewed using local people – but not in the Sweeny Todd way – the Sow & Piglets Brewery uses the best technology, finest local ingredients and the cheapest copywriter on the planet. Savings must be made!

18 Tregea St Port Campbell

Finally a beer to enjoy while looking at good stuff!

The iconic 12 Apostles formation was originally known and mapped as the Sow and Piglets (Muttonbird Island, near Loch Ard Gorge, was the ‘Sow’, and the smaller rock stacks were the ‘Piglets’), the Pinnacles or the Twelve Apostles. The formation eventually became known as the Twelve Apostles, despite only ever having nine stacks.

This iconic geological formation is adjacent to Port Campbell. In 2016, John Moloney and Marion Klink, owners and operators of the award winning Port Campbell Hostel, decided to build a craft brewery in a region that has in the past produced hops and much illicit distilling of bootleg spirits! The couple are keen to use local produce where possible-and if not local then Australian! The brewery is a purpose built microbrewery with a communal BBQ area for cooking local Wagyu steaks and produce.

A fine stable indeed

Our German brewer, Julian Widera is now producing a Kolsch, Hefeweizen, IPA and one of Australia's only Dunkel lagers in a brewery that will also produce seasonal beers utilising strawberries, blackberries, yoghurt and other fruits grown in the hinterland. A local food van will be on site at designated days to serve local seafood and artisan produce. 

Sow and Piglets beers will be available in many of the local bars and restaurants and to ensure that our customers are able to enjoy draught beer at all times, Growlers will be available for hire or for purchase or for a smaller taste a novel take away 1 litre can will be available with a canning process that takes place at the bar. 

Try a surfboard tasting platter and settle in for a pizza on the deck!
