Craft breweries

Enjoy locally made beers at craft breweries in the High Country. Sample award-winning Mountain Crafted lagers at Bright Brewery, take in stunning views of Mount Bogong while sipping on a Summer Ale at the Sweetwater Brewing Company, or sit back and relax in the open beer garden at Bridge Road Brewery in Beechworth. Taste the wide selection of ales and buy a six-pack to take home.

Victoria's High Country Brewery Trail

Extending from the river to the mountains, Victoria's High Country Brewery Trail weaves a scenic path to some truly lipsmacking hand-crafted beers. Each of the four breweries exudes its own personality and style, just like each of their brews. Taste the difference in the local craft beers, made with passion, the best ingredients, and the pristine waters of Victoria's High Country.

See close up where the beers are brewed, and learn what goes into crafting a unique beer. You might even learn a secret or two from talking to the brewers themselves. Family friendly, the breweries have great outdoor areas for that beer in the sun.

The High Country has long been renowned for its outstanding natural beauty and fresh air, not to mention laying claim to some of Australia's finest gourmet producers, most acclaimed restaurateurs and internationally recognised winemakers.

Now there's another great way to round out a High Country day of savouring local fare, touring wineries, hitting the Rail Trail for a leisurely cycle or feeling the exhilaration of a downhill mountain bike track (as you'll find many of our thrill-seeking brewers do!) – and that's kicking back with a cool ale to drink it all in.
