Beer is a Conversation: Smiling Samoyed

On a family road trip to Adelaide during the Easter break, Radio Brews News host, Pete Mitcham, reached out to a few local friends for some must-see recommendations.

One brewery visit was with Smiling Samoyed, which is located in Myponga on South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula. Pete was warmly welcomed by Kate Henning and brewing partner Simon Dunstone, along with Assistant Brewer Maddie who has risen from the ranks of hospitality staff to learn the ropes.

Smiling Samoyed is a reasonably small brewery in a large and well-run venue in a very small town with not much else to offer than great, locally-made beer. So how do you attract custom outside of your locals, how do you offer more than just beer and how do you adapt when a public access reservoir opens its gates to fun seekers?

Kate covers a wide variety of issues from packaging to growth strategy and beer awards. This conversation is sure to grab the attention of brewers and beer lovers alike.

Enjoy the conversation.
