Outstanding Beer & Pizza
Mornington Peninsula Brewery is a must visit for all craft beer lovers touring the Mornington Peninsula. An outstanding selection of beers ranging from their very sessionable Lager all the way through to their brilliant Imperial Stout which I rank as one of Australia's best. You will also find one or two of their specialty beers tapped at the brewery. Mornington Peninsula Brewery also makes what I consider to be the best thin crust Pizza on the Mornington Peninsula. 2pm-5pm Sundays gets very busy with Live Music featuring local artists so be sure to get in early to secure a table if you intend on eating.
FREE Bottle of HIX Beer
A treasure trove of Beer hidden down a tiny lane.
Bridge Road Brewers in the charming country town of Beechworth in North East Victoria is undoubtedly one of Australia's most recognisable craft breweries. If you are touring country Victoria and driving anywhere near Beechworth it is well worth the detour just to visit Bridge Road Brewers. Here you will find some of our countries finest craft beer on tap and available for takeaway in bottle. On offer in their pizzeria are some seriously delicious pizzas as well as burgers, sandwiches, nuts and sharing plates which all match perfectly with the beer on offer. If you're staying in Beechworth I can highly recommend walking to the brewery and spending a few hours sunning it up and drinking beer in the beer garden. The breweries Beer Garden is also child friendly with a playground provided. Bridge Road Brewers should be on every serious Craft Beer lovers list of breweries to visit.
Great Food and Beer in the Yarra Valley
I've been a fan of Hargreaves Hill ever since their Pale Ale first appeared in my local bottle shop and the Yering Station Farmers Market many years ago. It was very exciting when in 2007 they opened their restaurant in Yarra Glen and I would encourage anyone touring the Yarra Valley to drop in for a few beers and a meal. Spiced and Roasted Nuts or the Mt Zero Olives with Fruition Sourdough and Yarra Valley Dairy Persian Feta are always a good starter and the Roasted Pork Belly is always a favourite main of mine. Wash this down with some awesome Hargreaves Hill craft beer and you can't go wrong. If you have never tried their beers before it's best to start with a tasting paddle and if you are lucky enough to see their Imperial Red Ale, The Phoenix, on tap I encourage you to indulge and buy yourself a glass as it is a seriously great beer.
Brewery Accommodation Heaven!
If you're a lover of good beer and food and are on the look out for a place to base yourself in the Macedon Ranges then you can't go past the Holgate Brewhouse in the main street of Woodend. Located in a charming old country pub built in 1896 there is comfortable accommodation, a bar, a beer garden, working Brewery and a restaurant serving up very high-quality pub meals. If you love your Craft Beer and travelling country Victoria then this is the place for you.
A must visit for all Craft Beer lovers!
Bright Brewery is conveniently located in the heart of the Bright township in Victoria's Alpine Valleys on the way to Mount Hotham. An awesome range of Craft Beer ranging from easy drinking session beers all the way through to Barrel Aged Imperial Stouts makes this the only place worth drinking at in Bright. Add to the great range of beers some good food, Live music most Sunday's, a beautiful location and you have one very inviting venue indeed. For the kids there is an enormous playground in the park out the back of the brewery. A win, win all round!
