We visited this brewery on 20.2.2015. This brewery is located in a terrific region on our planet, you can find breweries, wineries, great Golf courses and fantastic beaches, feels like paradise, have not been to much better places so far. Before you enter the brewery you can see their own hop garden, which is quite unique. The beers are ok. They had one hand pump beer: Scottish ale and some light beers on tap. Seems they just celebrated their 10 years anniversary. Beers not outstanding, but if you are here you should definitely come.

A great look and feel to the place, with very tasty food, with the added bonus of some good beers and some very good beers.

The selection was short when we visited (only 4 beers), but the food and the service were excellent. The atmosphere was great too, it was full, but we still had plenty of space.

All of the beer is good and some is excellent. The Wheat was outstanding this time. Previously, Iíve liked the Temptation and the Christmas Ale here. I was looking forward to trying their Bohemian Pilsener on tap, but it was all gone except in mixed 6 packs. Some other things (like the Imperial Stout) are available in bottles to take away. The beer is well-presented in good glasses at appropriate temperatures (not always easy - Iíve been here when it was 40C). Itís interesting to note that this is a place that makes a thing of growing its own hops but I havenít had a beer where bitterness per se is a feature of a beer. Food is good and in generous proportion. Itís around $A25 for a main. Thereís local things - soft cheeses and very good housemade pickles, including of cherries picked within a pitís throw. Mixed in are fine things from a lot further away - Iíve eaten Comtť here. Once you get in, itís a friendly place, but things can be a little frenetic at lunchtime in the Peninsula summer holiday rush and the staff can start off a bit tetchy - weíve come in at 3pm with toddlers before and been made welcome, but at 1 for lunch things were at bit frosty at first before settling down nicely. Iíd like to see this place expand and be able to buy its beers in more places, but according to a bloke at the bottleshop up the road, thereís a cap on water use. [Update 1/ 2013] Now open irregular hours - mainly holiday weekends. Focusing on making more beer apparently. No longer doing its own food: getting food vans in when theyíre open. That was a truck serving gumbo and poí boys when I was last there - good stuff and the food was on all day. Very fond of this place.

Lovely little brewpub in a beautiful spot. The beers arer fantastic, didnít eat the food but it looked great. Loved the hop bines which wind their way around the beer garden. Itís remote location is both a good point and a bad point I guess. One of the best beer venues in Victoria.

...well, I thought this was a pretty nice place, in an even better location. THe blonde who served me was pretty hot too, which is always a plus, ha. The only beer that I sampled there that I thought was exceptional was the wheat. I woulud have that it was brewed in Germany. The other three(scotch ale, golden ale, and belgian blonde) were less than empressive. But this is about the place. THe tomato soup was pretty damn good, and the roast duck with caramelized figs was spectacular. It was cool to see the hop vines growing there too. It is far from here, thatís for sure, but a good place to stop by if you are in the area. And the bar guy definitely knew his beers. Overall, a pretty sweet place.

Thereís no doubt abuot the quality of the beer (stateís best brewer?) but this place should be viewed as more of a nice cafe, in a very nice part of the world, that just happens to serve its own beer. Kinda like Brew Moon in NZ in this respect. Apparently now very busy with the wine tourists. Service from bar dude was very good but food wait staff was appalling (made it very clear that they werenít paid to serve desserts after 4.30pm despite closing at least after 5.00pm). I sell these beers in Melbourne and will take up the service (or lack of) with the owner.

I love this place. The beers are great (see my ratings,) the hops are all grown on the premises, food is excellent with a focus on local produce and itís a great place to have a beer. The only problem is that itís so freaking far from anything - designated driver required. Update: As the business has grown this place has started to get really packed in summer. Itís best to visit on a weekday outside of the summer holidays, if at all possible. Food becomes a set menu over summer and youíll struggle to get a table if you just want a beer. But itís busy because, you know, itís good.
