Beer can make you happy - but a Tarrawanna brewery aims to show it can keep you warm too.
To coincide with the winter solstice on June 21 Reub Goldberg Brewing Machine is holding a live brew event.
It means the punters can watch the brewers making beer; a job normally done during the day away from prying eyes.
Head brewer Billy Barnetson said they'd been thinking about the educational event for quite a while.

"We've brewed 36 brews now and we're fairly confident on the brew machine," Barnetson said.
"We've had a lot of interest from our regulars wanting to know more and more about the brewing process, asking if they can be here during the brewing process."
So, for one night only, Barnetson and the team will brew a beer later in the day, when their brewery bar is open.
And the brewing machine will save on heating costs too.
"We figured we'd time it with the winter solstice, being the darkest day, and possibly cold as well," he said.
"The brew machine generates so much heat we'd figured it'd be a pretty good time to put it on display."
There won't be the chance for punters to help out with the brew, due to OHS regulations but Barnetson said he'll certainly be expecting a lot of questions and he will be stopping to explain the brewing process at every stage.
The beer being brewed is a porter, which will go on tap at the brewery bar in about three weeks.
Long-range, the plan is to make the live brew event a more regular thing.
"We want it to become something that happens on the winter solstice and the summer solstice," Barnetson said.
"The plan is eventually for the summer solstice brew to be something like a big dark Belgian beer and then release that on the winter solstice for the next live brew event.
"This first one is just to get it out there to see what the response is like and then tweak it from there."
