Prancing Pony Brewery, Mount Barker

#1 of 11 in Breweries & Distilleries in Greater Adelaide
At the Prancing Pony Brewery we are very proud of our unique story.

We believe that great beer should be brewed with passion and love, using the finest possible ingredients to create an array of complex, long flavours. Just like a long journey through the Sahara dessert, the flavour journey will be long and rewarding.

Our slow brewed beer and multi step mashing method crafts a beer with unsurpassed malt and caramel flavours. We refuse to filter our beers ensuring all those good flavours remain. We also bottle and keg condition so our beers can be stored for a long time.

They just get better with the passing of time.

The Pony says ”Dude it’s so good!”

At the Pony, our unique brewery door outlet “The Brewshed” is located right inside our commercial brewing space. There’s nothing as relaxing as watching our brewers hard at work while you enjoy the fruits of their labours with a beer tasting plank!

Take home a brewery-fresh souvenir of your visit to the Pony. At the brewshed you will encounter a stable of carefully crafted long flavoured beers, plus one-off and short run brews that are available only at the Brewshed and are highly sought after by Pony fans and craft beer connoisseurs alike.

The Pony knows that putting on the feedbag is part of the fun. All our dishes are created “from the beer up” to match our brews. Featuring fresh local ingredients, you can enjoy small bites, burgers, regional tasting platters and family friendly fare. And because the Pony loves its neighbours, there are Adelaide Hills wines and ciders to tempt you too. If it’s a quiet drink and a small bite, or a long lunch with all the trimmings, the Pony has your back.

Love the Pony and want to know more? The Brewshed offers a unique industrial tourism experience where visitors can immerse themselves in the brewing process. On any day you may see, smell and hear the brewing processes in action including mashing, fermentation, bottling and labelling. Find out how we brew to remain true to our promise of long-flavour. Ask about our dedicated group and tour program that can include Meet the Brewer, Food Pairings, Guided Beer Tastings or Beer Appreciation Tutorials, customised for your group.

  • Stopped by for lunch. The food here is fantastic, tasty, and pure bliss in your mouth. Wide selection of tap beers (the Zeppelin was my pick; flavourful and light beer). On top of it, my wife is nursing our young one that has many food intolerances (ranging from soy to dairy) to which they accommodated with a smile (chicken salad with pizza bread). While I had the mustang burger which was very tasty and spicy! Great experience, service, and food.
  • The staff were friendly and helpful, the beers are great and the pizzas are absolutely delicious. The prices were very reasonable, and all set in a nice atmosphere. Already looking forward to my next visit
