Robe Town Brewery
Robe Town Brewery is a small family-run Boutique brewery striving to make use of traditional and sustainable methods of brewing for the small-scale production of hand-crafted specialty ales and non-alcoholic beverages.
Robe is a small historic town situated on the rugged Limestone Coast of South Australia. Surrounded by beautiful views of the ocean, beaches and wild bushland, Robe is easily one of the region's top destinations for good food and great local wine!
The town is scattered with historic buildings dating back over 150 years ago, when Robe flourished as the second most active sea-port in South Australia. It is back in 1869 when the prominent citizen of Robe, George Lord Snr., first established the Robe Town Brewery.
With a focus on once again supplying the local market with fine brews, today Robe Town Brewery will be making use of several traditional methods of brewing that were used back when George Lord first served locally made ale at his old Frankfort Hotel (later known as the Criterion Hotel). This involves the use of handmade timber mash tuns (where malt starches are converted to sugars), custom-built wood-fired kettles (where the beer is boiled) and open fermentation vessels (where the yeast does its magic).
The brewery will strive to incorporate environmentally sustainable practices throughout the brewing process and use as many locally-sourced and/or organic ingredients as possible.
