Zig Zag Brewery, NSW Brewery Lane Lithgow NSW 2790
The Old Zig Zag Brewery, built in 1888, was one of the largest and most famous breweries west of the Great Divide. It maintained its popularity until the late 1950's when the last brew was made. Now refurbished and given a new lease on life, the Zig Zag Brewery is back with tours of the property conducted almost every week for visitors from far and wide. The famous brewery is once again striving to make award-winning beers using pure spring water and regionally sourced grains.
