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
The Humpback Brewery’s first brew - First Calf Pale Ale was on tap from 25th January, 2019!!
Sadly Jaime Orpinas our brewer left us suddenly early July, which has caused a few headaches. Two passionate home brewers from Candelo, Pete Smith and Dave Hargraves have taken it on with some expert guidance from Wes Smith who designed the brewery. Hopefully they will keep up the good quality and develop some interesting brews of their own before summer.

Hopefully this Tathra-born craft beer will give people another reason to come and visit Tathra. The Humpback Brewery brewers, Pete Smith and Dave Hargraves are very looking forward to seeing you at the Tathra Hotel.

Our Menus change seasonally to reflect the local produce available. We believe it's not only important to support our local farmers and producers but it is equally important to reduce the amount of food miles. Our menu includes gluten-free and vegetarian options and meals for children.
