Built in 1912 in the beautiful Blue Mountains town of Katoomba, our building housed 'The Echo', the local paper for many a year. Later it allegedly passed time as a "dancing saloon and home for lost or belated drunks", until finally ending up as a Civic Video store.
In 2017 DJ and Harriet McCready embarked on transforming the dilapidated building into the first brewpub in the Blue Mountains.
After 18 long months of careful renovation, we opened the doors with the goal of welcoming people from near and far to come in and have a beer.
But not just any beer!
Rather, we hold ourselves accountable to a standard that means constantly pushing the limit and pushing ourselves to figure out how we can brew better beer, every batch.
Because let’s face it, life is short. We have no time for beers that don’t blow our hair back, and nor should you!
