Sawmill Brewery + Smoko Room

Sawmill Brewery + Smoko Room had a tragic fire October 2019.
13 different breweries stepped up to help them out and keep production going while they could not. In the rebuild they have changed a few things - including 4 grain silos, which helps keep 12,000 plastic sacks out of the system every year.  Sawmill are B-corp certified - using business as a force for good. We'd like to think we helped them out in a small way too with taking the first group in since the reopening!
What a day! Look here for the video - Sawmill Brewery group daytrip
