Trace Victoria's booming craft brewing scene back to the Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges region, honing in on the imposing brick walls of the pioneering Holgate Brewhouse.
Stop in at the Woodend brewery, which blazed the trail for the scene's explosion, and choose your favourite from a tasting paddle of the traditionally brewed beers. Cranked out from the microbrewing plant at the Keatings Hotel, the beers use just four ingredients – malt, hops, yeast and pure Macedon Ranges water.
Beer to complement regional wines
Alternatively, enjoy the locally crafted beers at Tooborac Hotel and Brewery, perfectly complementing the wines of the Heathcote and Macedon Ranges wine regions.
