“Small batch” is one of those buzzphrases you hear a lot these days. You see it around so frequently, in fact, that its meaning seems to have all but disappeared behind the shadow of marketing campaigns and large-scale operations that seem to defy “small batch” at its heart. In a time when everything seems mass-marketed and impersonal, Thorny Devil reclaims the notion that craft beers really benefit from being handcrafted, local, and—who’d have guessed?—small.

Thorny Devil strives to provide irresistible flavours of crafted beer. We truly believe beer is about experimenting, exploring and having fun. Thorny Devil brews beers and ciders that ignite drinker’s taste buds. Thorny Devil is available at local events and festivals.


Big Shed Brewing

Big Shed Brewing

It started more than a decade ago with the ultimate man’s cave. But, finally, after years of hard work, the brewing dream shared by Jason Harris and Craig Basford is set to become a reality. â€œWe began brewing in Jason’s shed in a rented property in the Barossa back in 2002,“ says Craig. “The shed was huge, a farmer’s shed with easily enough room for the brewing equipment, cars, the Scalextric track, hardware, tools everything. It also had a mechanics pit which was perfect for keeping our brews at a constant fermenting temperature.

“It was here we began our love affair with making beer and while brewing that we would talk about making this a business as most home brewers do. We got ourselves an ABN and a business name, but it was a while before we did anything with it beyond getting a cheaper price on materials.” But, as Paul Kelly once sang, from little things big things grow. Or in this case, from a big shed, an even bigger shed grows, as very soon South Australia will gain a new brewery in the form of Big Shed Brewing. The site is ready to go in Royal Park, Adelaide, and the mates have recently taken delivery of their brewhouse kit.


A Decent Size for a Microbrewery

The Big Shed kit is a decent size for a startup microbrewery. And, sensibly given the rapid growth of the Aussie craft beer scene, they’re already planning ahead, with with a setup that will allow them to double their capacity without any major redevelopment required.

This might be just as well given the mishaps when it came to installation. Craig said that unloading was fairly fun and easy. Getting the equipment upright was not. It started off well enough but our first hurdle was the kettle. With its short stubby size we’d though we’d have no worries. Of course we hadn’t taken into account the additional weight of the ‘blast chamber’.
