Craft Beers of the Yarra Valley

See & Do

The Yarra Valley, home to some of the best wines in Australia is also the heartland of craft beers.

With all the flair the Yarra Valley wine industry is renowned for, the craft beer breweries offer a stellar range of beers that feature a similar high regard for quality ingredients, with an eye for perfection, solid good taste and something a little bit unique.

With a beer for any time of the year, any time of the week and any time of the day, it’s worth devoting a couple of hours (weeks, days…lifetimes!) to some tasty testing.
