BRUTHEN | Neil and Lois Triggs are Bruthen locals who have a passion for beer and food. they started Bullant Brewery with the aim of pairing the best onsite brewed beer with the best regionally sourced food. I paid the brewery a visit, and have to say they’ve done a great job of it.
Beers run a gauntlet of styles from larger to pale ale, and IPA to stout. There’s the core range tailored to what the locals love, and a rotating selection of seasonal and limited brews. Tasting paddles are available if you want to try a few things. If beer’s not your thing, there’s also an assortment of local wines available.
For food, it’s an assortment of pub classics, made using locally sourced produce. I was tempted by the American BBQ on offer, but instead opted for the burger – a kind of a hybrid between the “typical” Aussie and American burger, with a thick hand ground local beef patty, melty cheese, and a big slice of beetroot that really worked well. I also went for some oysters, that hit the spot nicely.
