Brew Your Own

We are very excited about the addition of our own on-site microbrewery at the Queenscliff Brewhouse. As well as brewing craft beer for our taps, the microbrewery provides the opportunity for customers to share in the experience of brewing and learn about the science of making great beer.

We have a range of packages from “Information & tasting experiences” to “working with a brewer experience” to hosting your bachelor or hens party at the Brewhouse, brewing a craft beer that you can serve at your wedding!

Perhaps you are an avid home brewer who would relish the opportunity to use our large scale and professional equipment to brew a full batch of your own recipe to share with friend or family. Our knowledgeable and experienced brewer is waiting to walk you through the adventure.

Please contact Deb Murray, Function & Event Coordinator, Queenscliff Brewhouse, for further information on any of the packages below.

During our “Brewer for a Day” experience you will brew a full commercial scale batch of beer, from mashing the grain through to transferring 300 litres of wort to a fermenter and inoculating it with yeast.

Working alongside our master brewer you will learn about the history of beer, the various styles of beer, the brewing process, the ingredients and recipe creation- -the science behind the art of Craft Beer.

The day includes Tasting Paddles from our” Prickly Moses” range as well as some guest taps and delicious food created in our Tasting Room Kitchen. At the end of the day choose your favourite beer and fill one of our “Growlers” to take away with you. The experience is limited to very small group sizes and tailored according to interest and ability.

We specialise in clubs, sports teams, business events and fuelling the passion of existing and aspiring home brewers.
