Holgate Brewhouse at Keatings Hotel has been stylishly refurbished to house ten modern rooms with ensuites and queen size beds. Fantastic views across the village of Woodend and Mount Macedon.

Relax and kick-back in the friendly atmosphere of the cosy bar and lounge. Enjoy the eight Holgate beers, a superb local wine list and popular restaurant.

Holgate Brewhouse at Keatings Hotel is a family owned and 100 per cent independent craft-brewing company that is cranking out classic beer styles in their micro brewing plant in Woodend. The Holgate operations have been centred at the iconic Keatings Hotel which was built as the major stop-over to the Bendigo gold-fields.

The accommodation rates include breakfast and are fantastic value. Enquire about their packages! The hotel is centrally located to both Daylesford and Macedon Ranges attractions. The staff can advise you on what to do while in the area. Or just relax and kick-back in the wonderful village of Woodend; take in the shops, cafes, antiques and scenery.

Their beers are all traditionally brewed with pure Macedon Ranges water and no artificial colours, flavours, preservatives or process aids. Their Real Ales are served from Beer Engines fully imported from England - these babies pump up the ale from the cellar in the time honoured tradition.

Their bar, lounge and restaurant offer modern Australian menu including house-made breads, cakes and platters of local produce. Many of the dishes, including fish and chips, and beef and ale pie, are cooked using the Holgate beer and the menu includes beer matches with the dishes.

Holgate Brewhouse at Keatings Hotel also features a superb local wine list, Byron Bay grown coffee and live music on Friday nights. Cosy open fires or courtyard dining can be enjoyed.
