PLACES WE LIKE TO VISIT. EVERY TOUR IS DIFFERENT 

Pennyroyal Raspberry Farm is the oldest working berry farm in the South West of Victoria. During the peak berry season they have ‘pick your own’ raspberries, blackberries and many more! They’ve gone one step further with their berries and infused them with gin to produce their very special berry gins- Raspberry Gin, Brambleberry Gin, Boysenberry Gin, Marionberry Gin and Jostaberry Gin to name a few! In addition to this they also produce their own home grown crucible cider! Included on this tour: Gin & Cider Tastings with a platter of local foods

Gosling Creek Winery is a delightful winery located on the northern slopes of the Murroon vineyard in farming country on the way to the Otway Ranges National Park, making it ideal for cooler climate grapes. Sample their delicious wines in a relaxed atmosphere at their cellar door overlooking the rolling hills and true country atmosphere.  Included on this tour: Wine tastings 

Forrest Brewing Company promotes itself as equal parts microbrewery, eating place and mountain bike hangout. Located in the renovated general store in the country town of Forrest it neighbours the Otway Ranges rainforest and is famous for mountain biking. Enjoy local seasonal produce for lunch whilst pairing with Forrest’s very own brewing company beers. You can even peek through the window to see the brewing process happening. Nothing quite tastes like a craft beer coming straight from the tank to the tap. Enjoy local seasonal produce for our lunch whilst pairing with Forrest’s very own brewing company beers   Included on this tour: A paddle of local beers and locally sourced lunch 

Yeowarra Hill wines are produced from fruit grown solely from the Yeowarra Hill family-owned vineyard, nestled in the Otway Ranges hinterland near Colac. From vines planted in 1988, Yeowarra Hill began handpicking its first commercial crop in 2006 after meticulous pruning led to excellent fruit in low yields.  Included on this tour: A wine tasting session 

Otway Estate Winery and Brewery occupies a forest clearing in the northern foothills of the Otway ranges. Set amidst the backdrop of native eucalypts the estate is home to a winery and a craft brewery. The Prickly Moses brewery  offers over 20 varieties of Beer and Cider. Included on this tour: A paddle of craft beers and a platter of locally produced food

Andy delivered!

We had an elopement to the Otway Ranges and wanted to do something fun with the guests the day after. We contacted Andy to put together a craft beer/wine tasting tour for eight people, and he delivered big time! This was despite the fact that it was winter and many of the normal places were closed. And despite the fact that Otway Ranges doesn’t have a lot of wineries. We had a fantastic time and tasted a lot of great beer and wine. Thank you Andy

It was an excellent day – Andy has an awesome knowledge of the area, very flexible, great communicator and we definitely all got the most out of the day. There was something for everyone and it was great value for money with all our tastings and lunch included. Highly recommend!! As seen on Tripadvisor

Geelong Craft Beer Tour

Thanks Andy for organizing a great day, what a selection of breweries to choose from down in the Geelong/Torquay area! Details were all taken care of and you obviously have a great rapport with the owners and staff at the various venues – getting in, drinking beer and getting back out again with a big group all went smoothly as.
