Vale Brewing

The McLaren Vale Beer Company was founded in 2008 by a couple of craft beer loving mates from Adelaide. As fans of great food, wine and regional produce, they had come to spend many weekends and holidays in McLaren Vale.

Over time, they realized a beer producer could add another dimension to the region’s offering. It’s often said that behind every great wine is great beer… and there certainly are plenty of local winemakers who fancy a knock-off brew or two! The brewery is in Willunga where head brewer Jeff Wright leads a team of proud South Aussies who are passionately committed to the craft styles they create.
In March 2015, South Australian brothers Tim, Pete and Michael Collin, the long term majority shareholders of Mclaren Vale Beer Company, bought out former shareholders, Greg Mackay and Mark Rogers, now making the company 100% family owned.
With the new ownership structure comes the new name; Vale Brewing. While these are significant changes, fans can be assured that the Vale Brewing offering will continue to build on the strength of the core range Vale Cider and Dr Pilkington's Miracle Cider will also continue to be produced in partnership with Chapel Hill Winery in McLaren Vale.
Their cellar door at Red Poles opened in 2013 and presents the best beer garden in the region. Enjoy the beer tasting paddles in the ambient courtyard or relax on the lawns.
Tasting paddles of the 4 beers are $10 each. 

Group bookings are welcome and can be made on 8323 8994.
