Grünthal is home to Grünthal Beer and Cider which is proudly made in their onsite microbrewery, as well as Grünthal Gin, Udder Delights Cheese and Hesketh Wine. We house a casual, family-friendly eatery serving modern Australian food and delicious pizza; a dedicated greenhouse for private function use and tourism experiences, including cheesemaking classes; and a large landscaped backyard overlooking the Onkaparinga River, where children can roam while adults soak up the sun in a relaxed setting.
Drop in for a drink, try a tasting experience, linger for a long lunch or dinner, join a class or hold your next event with us. Any which way, we’d love to see you in our expansive venue enjoying Grunthal hospitality at your home away from home
Our onsite microbrewery houses an innovative “Braumeister” system that is ideal for extracting and maximising hop aromas. We brew small batches often, and once chilled for packaging it stays chilled.
Head brewer Kai Cook works closely with our founder Saul Sullivan - Udder Delights’ cheesemaker now turned brewer. Saul comes from a background of quality through excellence and entrepreneurship. He possesses an astute palate and knows what he likes and can quickly detect if something isn’t as it should be. His leadership forms the basis of our simple brewing philosophy - to produce beers where flavour and quality are king.
Our food is made for sharing and feasting with family and friends. Head chef Jon and sous chef Ricky have fun working within the seasons using local Hills and South Australian ingredients to create tasty morsels and flavour bombs.
Our small plates change throughout the year and can include Cheeseburger Spring Rolls, Kingfish Croquettes, Southern Rock Lobster Ribbon Sandwiches, Duck San Choy Bao and Truffle Cheddar Toasties. Our fries are top notch and served with the Grunthal Truffle Vegemite Aioli (think umami with umami). Our deep-dish pizzas are made with a 48-hour fermented dough and premium toppings that are generously scattered. Our kids’ meals are made in house to be devoured by the little ones.
