Brewery showcase: Tumut River Brewing

“Two mates, one dream… and a very patient wife or two”

Tumut River Brewing Co. is the brainchild of co-founders Tim Martin and Simon Rossato, which started out like all grand ventures… while having a few beers together in a shed.

Beer nerds turned beer activists and then finally brewers, it has been a journey of delicious ups and regulatory downs for the passionate pair to setup their brewery on the banks of the Tumut river in 2013.

With a desire to showcase the untouched town of Tumut just 2hrs west of Canberra to potential tourists, both Tim and Simon gave up their day jobs and dived straight into a life of commercial brewing and all things beer.

Enthusiastically creating new beers, new flavours, some beers that were never to be repeated, and beers that should never have seen the light of day, the pair along with unwavering support from their wives have created a special place in the hearts of Tumut locals.
