New craft beer breweries about to make their mark on the South Australian scene

NEW SOUTH AUSTRALIAN BREWERIES

These are the fresh South Australian brewers/ breweries which will soon be gracing us with their beers from their own equipment and their own tap rooms. You can follow their progress via their social media links below and we’ll be following their progress as part of Graild.

This article is more of an introduction to the names, a few examples of the beers which will be pouring once they are open and a rough opening date. We will update our SA Brewery Map when they are ready to go and will also have the odd Friday Drinks article so we can get to know each one a little better.
Stay tuned for more coming soon!

EXISTING SOUTH AUSTRALIAN BREWERIES

These breweries are ones which most of us will be quite familiar with but each have had some exciting progress when it comes to their beer production and/ or distribution.

Shapeshifter Brewing

Have begun moving into their own premises in the inner West of Adelaide. We’re really excited to see what these guys can produce once they’re on their own equipment. Known for their excellent limited releases, could we potentially see them being released more frequently later this year?

Have recently acquired new brewing equipment down in Willunga. (edited)

Just announced that they are moving to a dedicated brewery and tap room in Yahl, just outside Mount Gambier

South Coast Brewing Co.

These guys are moving back into their brewery at Unit 1/11 Jay Drive, Willunga from today!
