Producer Spotlight: Big Shed Brewery
Craig and Jason began brewing in Jason’s shed in a rented property in the Barossa back in 2002. The shed was huge, a farmers shed with easily enough room for the brewing equipment hardware, tools and a mechanics pit which was perfect for keeping their brews at a constant fermenting temp.
It was here they began their love affair with making beer. They soon realised they could follow their curiosity and see what happens when berries are added to a brew (good things actually) And discovering what using a different yeast do to the flavours. The boys explain they made some cracking beers that folks loved, and admit they also made some abominations never to be seen again…they say it's part of their journey and would do it all again.
Thursday 29/2 from 4pm-6pm we have an in-store tasting with one of the founders Jason from Big Shed Brewery. With 5 Brews being poured this is bound to be an event not to miss!!

"Whole berry, four-day soak, wild ferment, 10% new French oak, the remainder seasoned French. In value terms, this is truly exceptional. It’s a wine of poise and engaging vibrancy that’s also rippling with flavour. Raspberry, blackberry, ripe redcurrant and red plum are all suggested but never so defined that they simplify. A dusting of warm spices and a lilt of red florals deepen the interest as well as the ready appeal. The finish underlines the class, with a lithe, effortless balance that leaves perfectly ripe flavours lingering, along with the desire for another glass."

Love the craft beers at Regions. New beers appear regularly and I’m usually a fan. It’s a great place to discover new South Australian craft producers.
Select range of regional (South Australian) wines not easily found in city bottle shops. Looking through every shelf is a treat. Enthusiastic and friendly staff. Also local craft beers, chilled and ready.
Despite the unassuming storefront, the interior is filled to the brim not only with wine, beer and spirits, but friendliness and an awesome local crew putting South Australian produce on the map.
Great little bottle shop, friendly service, can't wait to go back!
As a homesick South Australian, I have found buying wine and spirits easy from Regions website. They have a fabulous selection of produce at a competitive price. Delivery to Brisbane has been quick and packaging robust and environmentally friendly. Thanks team!
Tristan is a champ. Cheerful, enthusiastic and welcoming character. Range is excellent. A great example of a small SA community based business promoting small SA Wineries, Distillers and Brewers. Do yourself a favour and check it out. Its my local and glad I'm a member.
Regions offers a great selection of SA Wine, Beer & Spirits I can’t get in my local area. The website is great and I received my order the next day.
