Founded as the Mclaren Vale Beer Company in 2008, we kicked off contract brewing small runs of the original Vale Ale

We’ve since expanded our core range to include Lager, IPA, Mid Coast & Tropic Ale, with small batch of experimental and limited editions along the way, now homed under our brand Fox Hat Brewing.

We make quality, sessionable craft beers, brewed from the best ingredients by the best brewers. We’re proud of our product, because we whole-heartedly believe in it. We are commited to creating consistently fantastic brews that are genuine reflections of who we are and our purpose.
