Mismatch Brewing Co
Also onsite: a cidery, distillery, winemaker, grocer, juice company and a restaurant.
The name says it all: at Mismatch Brewing Co, a team of folks from different backgrounds and with various skills have come together to make yeasty, delicious beer. And, as it's brewed out of Hay Valley in a 35-hectolitre system, the company's core range also takes a bit of a patchwork approach. A lager and multiple ales sit alongside the bubbly and fruity Strawberry Berliner Weisse, for instance. That isn't the type of lineup that every beer outfit boasts.
Brewing a light, fragrant tipple out of red berries grown onsite is clearly something Mismatch couldn't pass up — and if you're eager not just to drink local, but knock back a different kind of brew made from local produce, you shouldn't pass it up either.
If you're keen to see where the magic happens, Mismatch and its cellar door is located at the 84-hectare site known as LOT.100, forming part of a collective that also includes a cidery, distillery, winemaker, grocer, juice company and a restaurant. At the latter, expect a paddock-to-plate lunch menu from 12–5pm Thursday–Sunday.
