Smiling Samoyed Brewery

This brewery isn’t located in the Adelaide Hills. But it’s too good not to mention. Located down in the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula. This Brewery started out as a hobby and quickly got out of control. The husband and wife team have truly excelled in their approach to beer. They have some stunning options to choose from. One of the best is the 12 Paws Pale Ale, which is dangerously more-ish. But the IPA and the Australian Kolsch are equally delightful. The sharing menu that pairs well with the beers cannot be recommended enough. And if the beer or food doesn’t make you want to stick around their resident dogs’ will.
