Enter a world of flavour in Victoria, home to a growing collection of independently owned boutique breweries. Often specialising in seasonal and small batch beers, brewery visitors can sample artisanal beer with a depth, complexity and variety of flavour that is unlike any commercially produced brews.
Explore the High Country Brewery Trail for an adventure through the region's breweries. Extending from the river to the mountains, the trail takes in the Bridge Road Brewers, Bright Brewery and Black Dog Brewery, with a final stop at the Sweetwater Brewing Company's beer hall.
Rolling hills and rugged coastlines
Discover the crop of craft breweries among Mornington's renowned wineries, sampling seasonal brews at Mornington Peninsula Brewery and Red Hill Brewery. Alternatively, take a break from your Great Ocean Road trip and order a pint at Geelong's Little Creatures Brewery or the Otway Estate Winery and Brewery. Pair your drinks with some delicious wood fired pizza or platters of seasonal local produce for the complete experience.
If you prefer a brew of the orchard-fruit kind, explore the boutique cideries around Victoria offering carefully crafted ciders made with local fruit. Visit cider capital Harcourt to discover not one but three cideries in town.
