Welcome to Watsacowie Brewing Co – The Yorke Peninsula Brewery
*** Please check our Facebook Page for the latest updates including changes to our opening hours ***
Open for Business!
Our brewery and cellar door is now open at Minlaton on the beautiful Yorke Peninsula. We are approximately a 2.5 hour drive from Adelaide, about an hour south from Wallaroo and about an hour North from Marion Bay. Our cellar door caters for around 80 people in relaxed country style atmosphere with all of our furniture and the bar being made from recycled local Jarrah and Oregon timbers which were reclaimed from a 120 year old shearing shed.
Our locally produced ales are available for purchase at the cellar door only at this stage and are aiming to have packaged products available early 2018. For those who really want to come hang out with us but aren’t really into beer, we have cider, wine and soft drinks available. Minlaton has long been regarded as the Barley Capital of the World so it’s only fitting that it has it’s own brewery. The town is centrally located on the Southern Yorke Peninsula and the beautiful Bluff and Parsons beaches are only a short 5 minute drive away.
We don’t currently offer meals but you are more than welcome to bring a picnic lunch or snacks to have here. We have some snacks available for purchase and will have some additional food options in the near future.
If you are looking to stay in Minlaton for a break, the Minlaton Caravan Park is just at the end of our street within easy walking distance and offers camping sites and self-contained cabins.
Eftpos facilities are available with most cards accepted including AMEX.
Thursday to Sunday & Selected Public Holidays – 11am to 6pm
Check our Facebook page for up to date opening times during holiday periods or give us a call on
(08) 8822 7117. Please note that on rare occasions, we may close early in periods of extreme weather but we will publish this to our Facebook page with as much notice as possible. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but the safety of our patrons and staff is very important
Children are welcome at the brewery but please make sure you keep an eye on the young ones who might like to wander off. We share a property with a wool store so there are occasionally trucks and forklifts driving through the yard.
WE LOVE DOGS!
Well behaved dogs are welcome but please bring a lead and bags to clean up after them. We have a resident red kelpie called Jazz. She loves kids, especially ones that throw balls for her.
