Innovatively housed in shipping containers and set in an outdoor garden space, Calamity's Rod provides a unique space to catch up with friends to sample their locally brewed Pale Ales, Lagers and Ales.
A highlight of Calamity's is the imposing mural by artist Finton Magee. The work is dedicated to six Irish Fenian Prisoners who escaped from the British penal colony in Western Australia. Escaping on a whaling boat in 1876, the Fenian's were able to reach the United States and live the rest of their lives as free men. You can read more about the mural on Calamity Rod's website.
Every Friday night Calamity's Rod gives you the opportunity to meet the Brewers, Dan and Geoff Goddard. They'll provide a tour of the brewery and take you deep into the chemistry of Calamity's boutique brewing operation. Contact the team to book a tour.
On Saturday evenings the bar livens up with their in-house DJ spinning a mix of country, popcorn, rhythm and tiki classics.
And if you feel like kicking on, then play and stay at their legendary accommodation hotel, The Hougoumont.
