  • Astoundingly good brewpub, one of the best in Victoria. Food a little expensive, but worth every cent. The beers are all great and reward the drinker that is willing to venture outside of lagers and pale ales. Perfect stop for lunch before further exploring western Victoria.
  • Holgates Brewhouse has some of the best craft beer you’ll ever have. There are so many quality varieties to try that you actually can’t get through all of them in a single day. From porter to ales, and one of the best wheat beers going, this is the place to visit if you like beer. It’s all made on premise, it’s local, it’s great, and the atmosphere is fantastic too. They also have a great restaurant that serves a wide range of beautiful local produce. And beer recommendations to go with most dishes.
