Craft Beer Taps

Great food, service and atmosphere can be found in this Adelaide Bar plus some of the best wines available in Australia.

Situated in a popular area The Colonist keeps up to date with the latest trends including the rise of Craft Beer. Over the past few years Craft Beer has become increasingly popular within the industry. Given this, customers are indulging in a pint of craft beer or limited release micro brews rather than their loved, long standing favourite beers. Don’t panic though we still stock the mainstream beers and ensure there is a range of profiles to suit all taste buds. Additionally, each year more microbreweries surface and launch new exciting craft beers. Therefore, enabling us to tap these and give customers something new to try.

In South Australia alone there are currently 56 craft and microbreweries. Ultimately, giving Adelaide pubs and customers a large variety of local Craft Beer to choose from. For example, these South Australian microbreweries are a popular choice of craft beer at The Colonist; Mismatch Brewing, Vale Brewing and Lobethal Bierhaus. As well as Moon Dog Craft Brewery, Hawkers Beer, Stone & Wood and Little Creatures Brewing which are outside of SA.
