About our BREWERY
Smiling Samoyed Brewery is a family-owned award winning brewery. Every single drop of Smiling Samoyed beer, in both kegs or in bottles, has been made and packaged on site at Myponga. Visitors can see the brewery through a window from the dining room and can even see the brewers in action on the brew-house on occasion.
Smiling Samoyed brewery was founded in 2012 by husband and wife team, Simon Dunstone and Kate Henning, after a home brewing hobby got out of control.
The brewery is named after Simon and Kate’s Samoyed dogs who have become much-loved mascots.
The brewery has quickly earned a reputation for excellent craft beers, delicious food and fantastic atmosphere. We have a range of beers sure to please every palate including ’12 Paws’ Pale Ale, a Dark Ale, an Australian Kolsch and an IPA. Our beers are available in a variety of good beer venues around South Australia.
The brewery is named after Simon and Kate’s Samoyed dogs who have become much-loved mascots at the brewery. Mia has been adored since she joined the family in 2009 as a puppy with her littermate Cooper (deceased 2017). Hoppy is the newest addition having been adopted from the RSPCA in September 2014 when she was just six months old. She has grown up at the brewery and takes her role as brewery bar ambassador very seriously.
