From the number of ambulance crew who suddenly appeared to help carry the cases, within a safe distance of course, Danny knew they certainly appreciated it.

“Without the support from our beer lovers this would not have been possible,” said Danny. “We’d like to thank everyone who has supported us over the past few weeks.”

The brewery says the beer is going down a storm nationwide and includes cans and bottles and an offering of ever changing brewery fresh beer available via 5L Mini Kegs.
