Housed withing the imposing Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel, the brewery is counted as one of the earliest pub breweries of Australia. Known for its delicious hand-made ales, it also remains famous as a grape lover's paradise offering an extensive selection of over 350 top-notch wines. The brewery churns out its hops only with water, yeast and malt, avoiding the use of synthetically-processed sugars and flavor enhancers. The hotel's large cellar is where the brewing begins, followed by fermentation of the brews and subsequently, being mellowed in the Bright Beer space, before guzzlers get to sip on the organic beers straight from the bar taps.
Sherlock Holmes would have been right at home in this very English pub, built in 1890 and virtually unchanged to this day. Locals of all ages who are after a pint, a yarn, and a game of darts frequent the Lord Dudley. Dark red carpeting, roaring log fires, and cosy tables make the Lord Dudley a haven on a dark, cold winter's night. English beers including Boddingtons, Bass and Newcastle Brown are big here, and the courtyard restaurant offers traditional pub meals for a reasonable amount. There is also a 130-strong wine list.
So food historians observed that the Aussie’s did not have any good beer until the late 1900 and that is when some people decided to take charge and took the onus on themselves to bring quality beer to Australia and that is how 4 Pines came in to existence.

Also, the beers are all natural and handcrafted!
