Jump headfirst into Melbourne's boutique brewery scene. You'll find independent brewers all over town: from inner-city warehouses to neighbourhood garages.
Melbourne's passionate brewers experiment with flavours and combinations that you won't find in commercial beers.
Many of these hyper local breweries begin as a dream between friends or partners, brewing small-batch beers in basements, backyards and old workshops across the city.
This new breed of boutique brewers isn't afraid of a little experimentation, and they use their pint-sized scale to their advantage, to cook up seasonal ales and flights of fancy.
You'll find traditional European style beers, fruity IPAs and many unusual flavour combinations.Try Moon Dog's 'Chocolate Biscuit Milk Stout' or the Henry Street Brewhouse 'Monsieur Grey IPA' (with French Earl Grey tea).
