Longstocking Nano Brewery is nestled among the rich, green river flats and rustic buildings of Oaklands on the fringe of Pambula Village.
All of their beers and ciders are passionately crafted and brewed on site by master brewer Rob, and his crew. They love a yarn, especially when it's about creating and enjoying beer!
Their tasting paddles allow you to choose your own journey through the flavours, and explore a generous selection of ales and lagers, a much loved ginger beer and a sweet and sour cider.
Pair your brew tasting with a selection of award-winning Sydney Rock Oysters from Sapphire Coast estuaries and local cheeses and enjoy the comforts of their expansive deck area, and indoor lounge and bar.
Beers, themed from the Roaring 20s, include Fatty Arbuckle (a dark ale) – brewed from complex dark roasted barley with hints of coffee, coupled with citrus undertones; Bonnie and Clyde (a pale ale) – lightly balanced with the grain/hop ratio not at all overpowering; or The Doctor – a German pilsener, lemon-gold in colour, with pleasant herbaceous tones in flavour with the addition of dry hopping in the lager stage.
In addition to the number of specialty beers, there is cider made from hand-crushed local apples, local honey and local coriander seeds and fermented for six months to produce a dry, sparkling drink.
One of the specialty beers is the Summer Ale. “It’s a mid strength beer with an apricot and mellow pawpaw nose and light flavour,” Mr Barber explained.
Longstocking makes up to 50,000 litres a year and all of it on site. The brewery is open 11am to 6pm with extended hours on request. It’s also the perfect location for small functions and get-togethers.
Oaklands is a family friendly destination, with petting barn, trail rides, gallery, cafe, event centre and garden centre.
