The Taproom is a vibrant, dynamic bar and brewery 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 we reckon a good beer is one of life’s great pleasures. We want to bring that excitement and joy to everything we do, especially when it comes to making small batch, handcrafted beers with satisfying and distinctive flavours.

The Taproom is a warm, welcoming space, filled with up-cycled industrial fittings, whimsical artifacts, 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, we have a strong connection to our region’s past, while loving the vibrant, creative community we 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.
