High hopes for Wallaroo microbrewery

After recording the second busiest Saturday ever on coming out of the lockdown period, Bond Store Wallaroo hopes the booming business will help them expand.

Derek Matthewman, who owns the formerly unloved warehouse with wife Nicole, spent nearly a million dollars on transforming the 150-year-old building into a three-storey microbrewery, distillery and restaurant, with accommodation on the top floor.
