Blood, sweat and beers

It’s been a while between drinks for the locals in Hall. After the closure of the much-loved Wood Duck in early 2017, it was definitely time to get things moving.

1882 is a labour of love for my sister and I – we’ve loved wine for a while…

Luckily, our lovely husbands also have a soft spot for good beer and spicey rum. That, and a whole lot of hard work, determination and creativity, have helped us through a reality-tv-worthy-renovation.

We’ve pulled down ceilings (and have a new appreciation for the bowel movements of local wildlife), pulled up carpet (glued down with a concrete-like substance), and built feature walls with a 10 year old (possibly with or without the use of a drop saw). It’s been a big few months.

That said, it’s absolutely been worth it.

There’s nothing better than being able to sit back and and look at tables you’ve built, stools you’ve made and walls you’ve put up.

We hope that you’ll love 1882 as much as we do. We hope it’s a place you’ll be comfortable enough to bring your family, meet your old friends and possibly even make new ones.

Cindy and Nikki xx
