The Taproom is a vibrant and dynamic bar and brewery producing and serving fresh, small batch hand crafted beers and showcasing local wines, cider and ginger beer.

The Taproom is home to Shedshaker Brewing Company, formerly known as Castlemaine Brewing Company. At Shedshaker they reckon a good beer is one of life’s great pleasures. They want to bring that excitement and joy to everything they do. Small batch, handcrafted with great flavours, satisfying and distinctive.

The Taproom is a warm and welcoming space, filled with up-cycled industrial fittings, whimsical artefacts, musical paraphernalia and original artworks. The Taproom provides a family friendly escape for locals and visitors alike, serving freshly made pizza and a wide selection of local, hand crafted beverages.

Located in sunny Central Victoria in a gold rush boom town, they feel a strong connection to their region’s past, while loving the vibrant, creative community they live in now. The Taproom and the Brewery are located in Castlemaine's dynamic Mill precinct, opposite the Castlemaine Botanic Gardens, and regularly plays host to events, functions, live music and performances.

Castlemaine is famous for two things: gold and beer. The team at The Taproom thought it was time to bring it home.
