Travel further South-West of Orange and you’ll find Pioneer Brewing.
The name says it all really, and despite the young age of the Brewery (opening in late 2017) these guys have been pioneering award winning Lagers and Ales since day one.
A 100% self-sufficient and independently operated brewery, it is the brainchild of owner Pete Gerber, who envisioned a brewery that emphasized an approachable range of beers while taking no short cuts on flavour.
Not only that but they are the only brewery on Australia’s eastern seaboard mainland to sow, grow and harvest their own malted grain for beer production. A true paddock to glass philosophy. Have a go at their recent release ‘Black Angus’ Coffee IPA, it’s an absolute Autumn treat.
