All of their craft beers are either brewed in-house, or they source them from one of a select few Australian craft breweries. Regardless of your tastes and preferences, you’ll be sure to find the most flavoursome beer and food to whet your appetite. Whether you try one of the gourmet pizzas or fresh salads, you are sure to enjoy the experience.

Sealegs is a quality brewery and an excellent venue. You will get special service from the Sealegs team. The food is outstanding and the atmosphere is warm. Ask about the cocktail range and the beer paddle.
