Block 'N Tackle Brewery
Central Coast, NSW

Est. 2015


Block ’n Tackle brewery took seed as a garage brewing project between Avoca Beach locals Michael Pepper (Pep) and Al Jones. Having teamed up with fellow locals Brett Brown and Greg Tobin, the brewery formally opened its doors at its current premises at Kincumber on the Central Coast of NSW amidst the cyclonic storm of April 2015.

In May 2019, a change in ownership saw Paul Wakelin take over the running of the brewery, along with the commitment to continue brewing the highest possible quality brewed product. He is equally passionate about developing the reputation of the Block ‘n Tackle brewery brand, enhancing the customer experience at the taproom and extending brewhouse output to meet demand while facilitating the development of packaged product. With extra taps added and the rolling out of many ‘pilot batch’ brews, the tap line up is ever changing and giving a new experience at the brewery every time.
