Welcome to Humpback Brewery
in the ex-pokie room
We started setting up a microbrewery in the former poker machine room at the Tathra Hotel as part of the 2016/2017 renovation. The 12 poker machines were removed, the floor reinforced and a microbrewery designed.
Our stainless steel brewery equipment ordered and manufactured in China arrived at the Tathra Hotel in September 2018.
Installation completed including electrical and plumbing works - December, 2018
Three batches of beer have been brewed so far - each batch is 500 litres. The first two are a summer ale and the third a pale ale.
Jaime, our brewer is going to blend the first two together which we expect to have on tap in about two weeks - it is difficult to be more precise as being the first brews we are not sure how long fermentation and conditioning will take.
And before we put any beer on tap we will want to make sure that it is a good product.

Hopefully this Tathra-born craft beer will give people another reason to come and visit Tathra. The Humpback Brewery team, led by Jaime Orpinas, head brewer is very looking forward to seeing you at the Tathra Hotel.
