Cheeky Peak Brewery's full stainless steel working brew house gleams proudly just an arms length away from our seating giving our customers a 180 degree view as the brewing happens. At the Brew Bar you can try one of our sample trays, do a brewery tour with a brewer who brews our beers and ciders, or simply have a lazy chit chat with one of our brewers whilst you have a Cheeky schooner.
How is our beer made?
Our beer and cider is made in our German designed and German made brewing system called the "Braumeister", in English it is called the "Brew Master". During the brewing process, the sugars are created by mixing hot water with the grains, which makes malt sugars. The Braumeister allows the water and sugars to drain and so spent grain can be discarded and stored until one of local farmers come to pick it up. Once the grain has been removed we begin the boil process and add the hops, combining that sweet malt flavour with the bitterness and flavour of hops to create our craft beer. Once the boil and hoping process is complete, we pump it through to our fermentation tanks via our wort chiller in order to cool it down to yeast pitching temp before it reaches our fermentation tanks.
How is our cider made?
Our cider recipes are a result of an extensive trial and market testing period. Our cider recipe is unique to Cheeky Peak and incorporates ingredients and yeast that you may not find in others ciders offered on the market. The cider brewing process is not as complex as beer, as water is boiled and apple concentrate is added along with other secret ingredients that culminate in our very popular ciders. Once the boiling process is complete, we pump it through to our fermentation tanks via our wort chiller in order to cool it down to yeast pitching temp before it reaches our fermentation tanks.
The Brew Bar Offering?
We have got very Cheeky with our brew bar. Our Brew Bar is in arms length of the brew house, thus offering a very unique and stimulating environment to our customers. The Brew Bar is largely constructed from recycled timber and all other items are sourced from local business to create an organic, stimulating and relaxed environment away from the bustling CBD.
We have a selection of light nibbles, and platters are available upon request.
We also welcome our Guests to BYO food, and can even order food from outside businesses - Now that's Cheeky
