LAKES COAST VISITOR GUIDE | PAGE 69 BRUTHEN Discover ‘beer with bite’in Bruthen At Bullant Brewery, you’ll discover fine food and house-brewed craft beer. Easily found in the main street of Bruthen, the brewery is set in a prime, elevated location, where you can look out over the Tambo River valley from the Bites @ Bullant Brewery restaurant, or out on the sunny deck. The brewery is sympathetically designed and built – with a low skillion roof, corrugated iron walls, warm colours and local hardwood timbers, ensuring it sits in complete harmony with its riverside, bushland setting. The team at Bullant says the philosophy of the brewery is simple: “to pair the best onsite-brewed beer with the best regionally sourced food”. The welcoming brewery was purpose-built to showcase the in-house brewing facilities – with the working copper brewhouse viewable through large, wide windows, while you taste the range of special house-made brews. Bullant’s local beers are named after features of the area, and each has a story. For example, Barksheds Wheat Beer is named after the local bark huts built by Billy O’Mara to store wattle bark used in leather tanning. Mossiface Pale Ale is named for the nearby river flat area where hops were once grown and historic hop kilns can still be seen. Tambo River Pilsner is named after the river that flows through Bruthen. There’s also live music out on the deck on selected weekends – subject to weather. Check out the brewery’s Facebook or Instagram pages on your way to Bruthen to see what’s on, or go to A tasting paddle is the perfect way to sample Bullant Brewery’s different beer styles.
