Cheers to an adventure in craft beer and a warm welcome at the heart of Lyndoch!

Four / Ministry of Beer, Lyndoch

Glory to beer in the highest! Located within the heart of Lyndoch, the Ministry of Beer stands out with its aesthetically pleasing and contemporary building.


Especially so, when the vines out front are full and lush in spring/summer or a vibrant red in autumn – the photos of this place during those times look absolutely stunning!


It’s equally stylish with a great ambience once you step inside, and the staff are wonderful and friendly. It’s an awesome place for kicking back and enjoying a lovingly crafted beer or two.

Dog-friendly beer garden



For those of you visiting with your furry friend, they have dog-friendly outdoor seating at their beer garden. There’s huge sail shades overhead for sun protection but nothing in the way of heavy rain.


Even though the weather was cold and dismal on the day we went, we were lucky enough not to have rain.


Specialising in sour beers



If you consider yourself a craft beer enthusiast, you’ll be delighted with the Ministry of Beer’s large and interesting range.


They only brew small batches to keep things fresh and to allow them to experiment and serve more unusual flavours. Brett, the brewer and owner of the Ministry of Beer has a passion for sour beers, so you’ll find a large amount of this style on tap.

Flammekueche and grazing platters



In terms of food, the Ministry of Beer serves Flammekueche, which is a German style pizza with very thin bases. We didn’t have any but they did smell good!


You can also put together your own grazing platter as they offer local fine food products.


On the way out, I grabbed some locally made apricot rocky road which was yum.
