Aussie Brewery Tours specialises in small public tours and customizable private events with VIP access to the breweries and cideries on the Mornington Peninsula. Our public tours leave daily from Melbourne with hotel pick-ups available. We can also customise a tour for your next corporate event, bucks or hens party, birthday or sporting/social club event.
Our expert guides and emcees will entertain you with a unique take on beer history and culture, whilst you eat and drink the day away. From pilsners to pale ales, apple and pear ciders, through porters and stouts we will take you on a tour of the worlds best beer and cider styles, created locally by the passionate brewers, cider and winemakers of the Mornington Peninsula.
The Aussie Brewery Tours tour philosophy is to run a fun, relaxing tour, which allows us to go with the flow, stop off at each venue, hang out, meet staff, buy an extra drink (or two) and see where the day takes us. All of our public tours run with a maximum of 13 participants. This is a fantastic group size that allows a cracking day with new friends whilst also ensuring the agility required to navigate busy venues and receive a truly personal experience.
There is a great mix of craft beers and artisan cider (and even some wines) available throughout the day so everyone can get involved and enjoy the flavour experience.
Hix Beer: The Hickenbotham family have been involved in wine making for four generations! They delighted Aussie Brewery Tours by starting a craft brewery in 2006 and have expanded their range to four core beers plus a number of seasonal releases. We will stop in, grab a tasting paddle and stay around for a drink! (Wine drinkers can of course, taste some of their fabulous wines).
Red Hill Brewery: Red Hill Brewery is one of our favourites breweries in the country and was a regular stop on our the first ever tour we ran. Each week lunch will be provided by a local pop-up kitchen (Americna BBQ and Mexican have been some of our favourites). Combine this with a tasting paddle of beers and a complimentary drink and Red Hill is sure to be one of your favourite stops of the day.
Mock Red Hill Cider: Mock Red Hill produce a number of quality apple and pear ciders and juices. Meet the staff, taste the range and then sit back in the cider lounge or cider garden for a complimentary drink.
Mornington Peninsula Brewery: Brew some of our favourite beers, serving them up with pizza and live music. Conceived over a few beers when the Hawks crushed the Cats in the 2008 AFL Grand Final, Mornington Peninsula Brewery has a simple motto: “be true to the beer and those who drink it”. It is a philosophy that has seen them become a favourite amongst Australia’s beer lovers. Grab a tasting paddle and drink, order yourself a pizza and relax for an afternoon of fun times with new friends.
