Big Shed Brewing Co.

Shop at Big Shed Brewing

We began brewing in Jason’s shed in a rented property in the Barossa back in 2002. The shed was huge, a farmers shed with easily enough room for the brewing equipment, cars, the Scalextric track (yeah that’s right), hardware, and it also had a mechanics pit which was perfect for keeping our brews at a constant fermenting temp. It was here we began our love affair with making beer.  We made some cracking beers that folks loved, we also made some abominations never to be seen again… That’s part of the journey and not something we would remove from our experience.

It was while brewing that we would talk about making this a business but it was a while before we did anything with it. We rented a small warehouse in Royal Park, moved in and used our R&D setup to further design and refine our starting line-up. It has also been our business base and we have had many discussions with local brewing legend, Stephen Nelsen who helped with the design of our commercial setup.

It all arrived and we put our first beer through the system in December 2013, FrankenBROWN. Since then we have added F-Yeah, Californicator, Kol Schisel and then some to our range. We are open Wednesday through to Sunday, slinging brews and food to eager locals and visitors alike.
