Indie Craft Beer

Do you enjoy stout, ale, larger or a hint of honey? No matter how you love your beer, we have the answer to discovering something different. Enjoy a nice cold beer on a hot afternoon, wander through our streets and discover hidden gems and some of the best handcrafted beer in the biggest island in the world.

Brewing and beer is just as important to the fabric of Melbourne as footy and live music is. So for those who like to enjoy a nice cold beer on a hot (or rainy) afternoon, we have the perfect walk for you!

Due to the sheer number of breweries that could be found in Melbourne during the 19th century, the city quickly became known as Australia’s beer capital. So great was Melbourne’s love for beer that the city’s first elected mayor was even a brewer (you can’t get much more Aussie than that!).

While only a few of the historical breweries remain, the number of small breweries that have sprung up over the last decade has once again made Melbourne a city dedicated to beer.

This has even led to some calling Melbourne one of the top destinations in the world for beer lovers. Thus proving Melbourne is not only Australia’s beer capital but also one of the worlds. Melbourne is a great city for many reasons: great sport games, great music gigs, great parks and gardens, great people, great artisan products made locally, great underground culture but also great craft beer!
