ADELAIDE | Big Shed Brewing Concern was started by friends and homebrewers Jason Harris and Craig Basford in 2002. The brewed out of a literal big shed in Lyndoch, Barossa Valley. They soon realised that they were pretty good at this brewing thing, and a few years later they were operating as a business and racking up state and national beer awards.
They expanded and moved around a bit until finally, in 2018, they moved into their current premises, a huge industrial space (another big shed if you think about it), in Royal Park, Adelaide. The space is sizeable. It can fit up to 250 people, and there’s a 24-tap front bar with a beer garden out front. There’s arcade machines and big screens showing sport too. It’s a whole lot of fun.
On tap you’ll find the core range beers, plus a rotating selection of seasonal and limited beers. Tasting paddles are offered if you want to try a few things. There’s also wine and spirits for non-beer drinkers, including infused vodkas based on some of the beers.
I highly recommend trying the Golden Stout Time, a 5.4% ABV Golden Gaytime inspired stout infused with toffee and honeycomb and light on hops. Also try the Boozy Fruit, a juicy, tropical 6.2% ABV GABS 2018 award winning NEIPA.
Food wise, it’s the focus is on pizzas, burger, and American BBQ, with a few other options rounding out the offering. Big Shed also have a canning line and take away license, so you can stock up on a few beers to bring home on your way out.
