PLACES WE LIKE TO VISIT. EVERY TOUR IS DIFFERENT
Mount Duneed Estate is the home to “A Day on the Green” concerts and festivals so naturally the Mt Duneed Brewing Company produced their own craft beers to celebrate. In conjunction with ciders from the Pettavel Road Brewing Company a sampling paddle is a fantastic way to get the day started!
Odyssey Tavern and Brewery One of the first to embrace the craft beer scene in Geelong and surrounds is Odyssey Tavern and Brewery. With a relaxed vibe with amazing beer friendly food and eight taps pouring nothing but craft beer including their own range of spectacular beers it is easy to see why they pull in such a large crowd.
Blackman’s Brewery is located on the seaside surfer’s haven Torquay and their philosophy is simple- we love good beer. A locally owned brewery they’ve created a perfect venue for enjoying good beer, good food and enjoying a relaxing day at the pub. With beers called Ernie, Reginald, Arthur and Mervyn it’s time to meet some of the team!
Airey’s Pub When a brewery names one of their beers “Cranky Mrs” you know you’re going to have a good time. Having wrestled the pub away from developers and mainstream beers this pub embodies the local surfing spirit. With the help of a tasting paddle and a wide range of craft beers you’ll find something for every palate.
Designed to ignite your imagination and explore your curiosity White Rabbit Brewery is an experience in and of itself. The Barrel Hall is just the place to do this surrounded by the open fermenters and barrels filled with their range of craft beers. Leave all your preconceived ideas at the door as you explore their range of ales made with the perfect blend of tried and true techniques with new age thinking!
Little Creatures Brewing After their huge success in Fremantle, Little Creatures decided it was time for the east coast to experience all they had to offer. With the most efficient brewery in the Southern Hemisphere they’ve opened one of the most exciting and welcoming brewery bars you’ll find. Having built inside shipping containers and quirky landscaping and interior design, half the fun is getting to the bar! Whether you’re going on their brewery tour or enjoying Andy’s shout you’ll be putting this down as a place to visit again.

Geelong has long been the sleeping giant of the craft beer world. The giant that is the Craft Brewery Industry has finally awoken and the whole country is taking notice. With so many craft beer venues opening and producing award winning beer it can be overwhelming to choose where to go and how to get there.
Andy’s taken the guess work out of this and will take on the role of the designated driver and guide so you can truly immerse yourself in the incredible range of craft beers and breweries, each with their own story and unique personality. Yes – a lot of beer will be consumed on this tour…
