Watts River Brewing is a small, independent, family-owned brewery located in Healesville, Yarra Valley that is focused on producing high quality, simple but flavourful beers to suit a diverse range of palates.
After installing a custom-built 500L brewery, they opened the doors to their rustic Cellar Door Bar in Oct 2016 aiming to create a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere where visitors can experience their range right amongst the brewery operation.
With five core range beers always on tap, plus regularly rotating small-batch creations, they draw inspiration from old-world Belgian ales as well as new world craft techniques to create a range of interesting, but above all else drinkable beers. All beers have a strong ‘Farm to Table’ focus as they source approximately 80% of the brewing grain used directly from their brewer Ben’s family farm. This allows them to brew with the freshest grain each season.
Their Cellar Door Bar is open from Thursday to Monday for fresh beer on tap, tasting paddles, house-made pizzas, snacks as well as a small selection of local wine and gin.
Plus, within walking distance, you will find a host of other quality producers such as Jayden Ong Winery & Cellar Bar, Four Pillars Gin Distillery, No.7 and Payten & Jones Wine. There are so many good reasons to visit the Yarra Valley.
