Don’t let the name fool you, it’s not named after a large green monster but rather the town of Ogre in Latvia, from where the brewer Matthew Veide’s family originated. This family owned brewery and tap house is located in a heritage listed 1860s cottage which was for many years ‘The Barn’, a popular restaurant in McLaren Vale. Now as the home of Ogre Brewing Co, it’s open from 11am till late 7 days a week and visitors can try a range of beers with snacks, lunch or dinner.
Around an hour’s drive south of Adelaide on the Fleurieu Peninsula is the Myponga Reservoir which has recently been opened up for families to enjoy its scenic outlook and recreation options. A visit makes for an interesting day out in nature to go bushwalking, ride a bike, have a picnic, see plenty of kangaroos in the wild and get wide scenic views. After a healthy day out there’s also a way you can reward yourself at the end.
