Breweries & distilleries

Discover a new breed of small batch ales, beers and spirits at Victoria's ever-growing stable of craft breweries, cideries and distilleries. Whatever your tipple, we've got a flight of something fancy for you.

Across Melbourne and Victoria, independent breweries and boutique cideries are crafting kegs of gold and amber with unique character. There's plenty of places (and excuses) to stop for a tasting, a cellar door tour, or a long, beer-matched lunch.

Fancy a road trip? The road's paved with liquid gold on the High Country Brewery Trail and the Yarra Valley Cider & Ale Trail. Closer to Melbourne, you'll find exciting things brewing in Spotswood, Footscray, and Brunswick, and on the city fringe, explore Richmond: home to Mountain Goat Beer.

Distilleries across Victoria also open their doors for tastings of small batch spirits like artisan gin. Try single malt whiskies crafted in Port Melbourne, on the Great Ocean Road and the Mornington Peninsula. Behold the botanicals of bespoke and small-batch gins in Healesville, Red Hill, Ballarat and Bright. Branching out? Try quinoa vodka and herbal liqueurs in Daylesford.
