Beer Lovers Guide to Melbourne

From AUD $90.00
  • Duration: 3 Hours (approx.)
  • Location: Melbourne

The city’s fascination with beer and pub culture can be
traced right back to the settlement of Melbourne. One of the founding
fathers was a publican, our first mayor a brewer and the first council
meeting happened in a pub. This fun and informal tour traces the history
of beer consumption in the Victorian capital. We examine the early
rogue settlers, the sly grog trade of gold rush era as well as the
temperance movement and conservative war time drinking habits.

The tour also explores Melbourne more recent liberal liquor licensing laws,
the birth of the city’s laneway bars as well as the explosion of small
batch, craft or microbreweries. We stop at 4 venues to assist in our
education. At each, we will try a delicious beer with a focus on
Melbourne and Victorian microbreweries. The tour concludes with a burger
