    I was blown away! I was telling the owner how much I loved their current tap beer. Next thing we know, we were introduced to the brewers. How sensational! They had a DJ and allow you to bring take away food from local businesses! Support local! We will be back!

    We will be visiting the fat Goat with friends again for sure. It was delightful sitting outside sipping our drinks. The range of gin and the pairings were exceptional and the tap beers were a favorite of several friends. We love the concept of buying food locally and bringing it back to enjoy with another drink or two. Highly recommend you enjoy an afternoon there.

    The Fat Goat is a wonderful experience in Boutique beers and dining. The ability to order food from anywhere and consume it on premises is fantastic. The Upwey shops have a large variety of food establishments so the choice is large. Have been here many times and will continue to do so in the future.

    So good! Great selection of local beers and super yum cocktails. Great music and attentive staff. Ordered pizza from the place around the corner and had that with our drinks (Fat Goat has crisps but does t serve food— it’s in a great place though— heaps of restaurants just around the corner!!)

    There were only a couple of food options in the area yesterday. Tin Pan Alley was open but not much else! I wish the fat goat had some food. Chacuterie board/ trio of dips. I love the fat goat otherwise! It’s the best! Everyone who works there goes out if their way for customer service! I love this! Please please please add food to your menu.
