Our all new 2017 release Frost Russian Imperial Stout bottles go on sale at the brewery from 12pm Saturday 23rd September. Drop by a little later between 5pm to 8pm and you can enjoy a special vertical tasting of 2016 and 2017 release Frost Russian Imperial Stouts. We're putting a keg of each special brew on tap offering a once-off chance to experience the tastes of both brews side by side. The vertical tasting is $8 which includes a glass of each of the special brews. Purchase a vertical tasting and you'll receive a discount on all Frost 2017 bottle purchases.

CHARITY AUCTION OF BOTTLE #1 The number #1 bottle of Frost is being auctioned with all proceeds going to local charity Central Coast Kids in Need (CCKIN). In 2016, we helped raise just under $1,000 for CCKIN so we're hoping to at least double that effort this time around, but we need your help! How to bid: Click here to go to the charity auction website, register and place your bid. The auction closes 6pm AEST Saturday September 23rd.

Where: Block 'n Tackle Brewery
When: Saturday 23rd September
Bottle Sales: From 12pm

Auction bid sheets will be available at the brewery on Saturday 23rd (until auction closes) for anyone who'd like to bid offline.


Fortnightly on Thursday's from 6pm.

Here's your chance to strut your stuff and show us your talents! Hosted by BnTs' brewer Pep, Garage Jam is best described as an Open Mic Night at the Brewery. It is a family affair and open to performers of all ages! Every performer receives a free beer (that'll be a soft drink if you're under 18!) and a prize is offered for the best performer on the night. We have two microphones and a PA system available for your use - just bring in your instrument and do your thing. As a smaller venue, Open Mic at the Brewery offers a friendly, non-intimidating setting for our performers and a chance for other guests to kick back and enjoy a brew and some good tunes.

No table bookings can be made, so its best to be early for the prime seating positions. Entry is free!

'Live 'n Local' at the Brewery takes place on the first Sunday of every month!

Live 'n Local provides a platform for young (and some not so young), emerging Central Coast musicians to showcase their talents. As a small venue, these performances offer an intimate setting where musicians can closely engage with the audience providing the chance for some fun, surprises and the occasional crowd sing-a-long. If you've already been to one of our Live 'n Local Sundays, you'll know it's important to get in early as seating is limited. The brewery will kick open the doors at 12pm with food from 12:30pm and music from 1pm.

No table bookings can be made, so its best to be early for the prime positions. Entry is free!
