After all, we think you've earned it...
In recent time's the craft beer industry on the Mornington Peninsula and neighbouring bayside ares has exploded and Brewery Bus Tours are excited to be able to take you to visit some of the pioneer breweries in the area and also some of the new comers on the scene!
With so many choices on hand in such close proximity we have had to break our saturday tours into either the Bayside Beers or Hillside Hops tour, so take your pick.
We would love to take you too them all but that would end up extremely messy and we don't like spew on our bus!
Our Hillside Hops tour will start with a visit to one of the original pioneers of brewing in the area, Hickinbotham Brewery.
Most likely, Andrew and Terryn the brewery and wine estate owners will be on hand to give us the tip on how to brew a good drop.
Speaking of good drops, have a crack at the Hix Brown Ale while yo'r there, it gives new meaning to chocolate that melts in your mouth!
From here we will head up to Red Hill Brewery, a long standing and iconic brewhouse on the Mornington Peninsula.
The setting for this Micro Brewery is truly unique and you will love tucking in to some mouth watering Slow Cooked BBQ and washing it down with a Red Hill Golden Ale or 3 if your thirsty..
Then its down the hill where we meet the blokes at Jetty road Brewery.
This is one of the newest breweries to open in recent times and their American style Pale ale is a must try.
Just like on thebrewbus.com.au the vibe at Jetty Road Brewery is pretty laid back, an easy going atmosphere with some style which keeps the locals and visitors that are lucky enough to find this place coming back for more!
Last stop on thebrewbus.com.au our final destination is the famous Mornington Peninsula Brewery, Matt and the team at Mornington Peninsula Brewery have an outstanding set up and will take you through the finer points of brewing a batch using the latest techniques and specialty ingredients.
The only thing left is to chill out in the beer garden with some tunes in the background and reflect on a great afternoon with friends or colleagues.
From there my beer loving buddies, it's your choice, continue on into the night or we can drop you off safe n sound, tuck you in bed where you can dream of liquid gold......
English Brown Ale is a style made with chocolate & dark crystal malted barley which gives the aroma & flavour of nuts & chocolate.
The hops lend a citrus character to the mix which complement the malt character & caramel overtones beautifully.
Jetty Road Brewery
The Jetty Road Pale, a spin on the American style pale ale. Designed to be a sessionable pale with a crisp and clean palate underpinned by a subtle satisfying bitterness.Tropical and citrus aromas come through from generous late hop additions of mosaic and simcoe.
Red Hill Brewery
Golden Ale, a pale and crisp light bodied ale, fruity with a restrained hoppy dryness created by our own Hallertauer & Tettnanger hop flowers. This beer is fermented at a cool temperature to create a crisp, clean finish and uses the best quality imported German Pilsner Malt. We also add a touch of Australian grown Wheat Malt to improve head retention on this beer.11 spots available
Mornington Peninsula Brewery
Although the MP Pale is a favourite and readily available, Mornington Peninsula Specialty beers are a short batch run and available at the brewery.
