Mudgee Brewing Co
Mudgee has a long history of brewing beer, starting in 1858 with Crossing's Brewery. Twenty-five years later, the Broombee Brewery came along. Mudgee's longest-running brewery, the Federal Brewery, was established in 1883 and operated until 1956, sending beer to Darwin and several Pacific Islands during World War II. The brewery's building is a little over 100 years old and used to be a Wool & Skin Store run by the Poulton family for 80 years. After a few renovations, it's perfect for enjoying some ice cold beer, local Mudgee wine and of course, local produce. The brewery is also the home of live music in Mudgee. Other services include catering, weddings, events and tours. As a family run local business, our main goal is to promote Mudgee, local wine makers and farmers while increasing tourism in the Central West region. And, as always, serve fantastic beer and food.
