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!!

*UPDATE! 30/09/19

Our brewers, Pete Smith and Dave Hargraves were pumping out Humpback beer kegs for the Sundeck Hotel in Perisher this winter. Many skiers and snowboarders enjoyed the Humpback beers on tap after a day on the slopes.

All Humpback beers are only available at the Tathra Hotel on the Far South Coast, NSW.


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.
