Swell Brewing Co.

The finest craft beer, served amongst the vines in McLaren Vale

Swell Brewery, the easy option to catch up or celebrate as a group.

During opening hours we welcome bookings for up to 40 guests. No function menu required. Drinks from the bar, and casual lunch menu options from our mouth-watering Tap House menu. We welcome all types of group bookings to our relaxed, family friendly atmosphere.

For private functions Friday and Saturday nights (or any day of the week really!) we welcome all different types of groups, parties, and events. Let’s get real here though… nothing about us is formal! So, we’re not the venue for fine dining and white table cloths. If you are looking for super friendly service, a casual atmosphere, with hearty finger food, and a selection of great local drinks – including of course our 16 beers on tap all freshly brewed on site – then we’d love to hear from you.

Any type of celebration, networking function, or launch party
Birthday parties
Office shows
Weddings (with the ceremony here too if you like)
Engagement parties
21st Birthday parties
And even 18th Birthdays (as a family occasion, not a party).

We’d love to hear from you and see if Swell Brewery is just the venue you have been looking for!

Founder and Brewer Dan Wright is passionate about craft beer. He uses the finest ingredients, and applies brewing techniques to bring Swell beer’s original flavour. Coming to brewing from a wine background, he wanted Swell Beers to represent new layers of flavour and texture, and to be a first choice for matching with food.

The venue is found amongst the vines, in the rolling hills of McLaren Vale, a stunning backdrop for your next event.

Sorry no hens or bucks shows, buses are capped at 20 people, and must arrive before 1.30pm.
