WELCOME TO BLOCK ’N TACKLE BREWERY
Our Central Coast brewery and cellar door at Kincumber is the ideal spot to meet with friends and chill while enjoying a tasting sample of the fresh beers available - either by the glass, or (even better) by grabbing a tasting paddle to sample the range. Once you’ve picked your brews of choice, take them home to enjoy in a 1 Litre serve, or in our refillable Block ‘n Tackle 1.89 Litre Stainless Steel Mini-Keg.
As a working brewery, you’ll see the beer in production only metres away from where it’s served to your glass. Our brewer (Pep) is onsite more often than not and is always happy to have a chat about the beers and the brewing process.
Block ’n Tackle is a working brewery with a cellar door for tastings and takeaways. We're not a restaurant or a pub and it is this difference that makes us a unique place to visit. For more details on what's on offer at the brewery, take a look here.
MOBILE BAR HIRE & PARTY KEGS
Looking to host a party at your place? Block 'n Tackle Brewery can help you cater in style with mobile mini bars that bring the brewery to your backyard party or function. Our mini-bars feature 4 taps allowing you to pour up to 4 styles of Block 'n Tackle Brews. There's no fuss either as the Block 'n Tackle crew will have everything delivered and setup so all you need to do is pull a tap to start serving. Our staff can help you cater for a range of guest numbers (and budgets) with 20 and 50 litre keg size options - the bars can be decorated to suit a range of themes and settings from backyard parties to more formal wedding and corporate events. For more information on bar hire and keg pricing options, drop into the brewery or call 4368 3333.
TRY THE CHEESE MADE FROM OUR BEER
A heavenly blend of Little Creek handcrafted cheese with our very own Sir Thomas Porter. 150 gram blocks of this cheddar are available from the brewery for just $9.50. This cheese is also available on our Mezza Plates so you can try before you buy. The perfect companion for your favourite Block 'n Tackle brew!
HATS OFF TO LOCALLY PRODUCED SHORT FILM
To help promote the 2017 Central Coast Craft Beer and Cider Festival, Dane Fabri from Fabri Creative decided to make a short film! Shot on location at The Kincumber Hotel and co-starring our very own Block 'n Tackle Stainless Steel mini-keg, the story centres on two old mates – Harry and Thomas, as they ponder the quirky complexities of life as a worm.
BREWS FEATURING AT THE CELLAR DOOR
Our new Winter Seasonal - Big Ben Belgian Blonde is available for tasting and takeaways from 12pm Friday 30th June. Packed with flavours from the traditional yeast and malts and weighing in at 7.1% ABV this brew is big on everything - check the details here! Also new to the 9-tap lineup is our latest batch of Jon Piper American IPA. This new batch was 'quietly' launched at the 2017 Central Coast Craft Beer Festival and has been getting excellent reviews from our hop-lovin' customers at the brewery. The taproom currently features 8 brews and a cider to taste and takeaway. Take a look through our beers page to check out what's on offer for tasting and takeaways. As we constantly evolve our range of beers, we encourage you to check back often to see what’s available.

FROST 2016 RELEASE - LAST CHANCE!
As we prepare for the impending special second anniversary brew, its high time to remind you that only a handful of our 2016 Edition bottles still remain. With a rush of last minute orders from specialty bottle shops like our friends at Oldfields Cellars, only a handful of Frost now remain. To avoid disappointment, hurry in soon to grab yourself one of the very last bottles of this special batch. Frost Russian Imperial Stout bottles can be cellared and aged to allow for further development of the intense flavours.
