Feeling Festive?!

November 22, 2017 IN Bars, Beers, Brewery, Events, Pub, Restaurants, Uncategorized

The end of the year is around the corner, and it’s got us feeling festive!

If you follow us on Facebook you’ll have seen we’re hosting a number of events in the build up to festive season – Wavescape and We Love Real Beer to name two – in addition to our on-going events such as Jazz Nights, Quiz Nights and Food Truck Fridays. What you may not know is that the Taproom is also available for private hire.

Situated in the Southern Suburbs, in a quaint cul-de-sac, a mere 20 minutes from town, it’s the ideal location for a private function.

With the freshest beer on tap, an Executive chef and fully equipped kitchen, we’re no strangers to corporate end of year functions, birthday parties, and weddings. Our ‘industrial chic’ styling makes for great understated décor, or the ideal base on which to build your event vision. As a regular live music venue we also offer various suggestions for music and entertainment.

For smaller groups just looking for somewhere low-key to wind down the year with a beer and some good food, feel free to book a table for lunch during our weekly opening hours: Wednesday to Friday 10am – 10pm, and Saturday 10am – 2pm. If you’re interested, we also offer brewery tours (bookings only).

Get in touch: taproom@jackblackbeer / 021 286 1220

We look forward to hosting you!
