One of the founding fathers was a publican, Victoria's first mayor was a brewer and the first council meeting happened in a pub.

Melbourne By Foot will take you on a Beer Lovers Guide to Melbourne. This fun and informal tour traces the history of beer consumption in the Victorian capital. Examine the early rogue settlers, the sly grog trade of gold rush era as well as the temperance movement and conservative war time drinking habits.

The tour also explores Melbourne more recent liberal liquor licensing laws, the birth of the city's laneway bars as well as the explosion of small batch, craft or microbreweries. Stop at four venues to assist in your own beer education. At each, try a delicious beer with a focus on Melbourne and Victorian microbreweries. The tour concludes with a burger supper.

A great orientation for first time travellers and a must for regular visitors and Melburnians with a thirst for local knowledge.
