Breweries and bars in the Macedon Ranges
We have a strong reputation for our wines and wineries in the Macedon Ranges but we are also the place to quench your beer cravings.
At Holgate Brewhouse in Woodend, you can taste a range of fresh and full-flavoured authentic craft beer or tour the microbrewery, located in a handsome 19th century red-brick hotel. Why not order a beer tasting paddle of 8 beer samples, enjoy a meal in their restaurant or stay a night in one of their guestrooms?
The Royal George Hotel in Kyneton, a charming bluestone-walled pub established in 1852, serves up a large selection of the best Australian and international craft beers and ciders. Big Little Baby in Macedon is a bar and bottleshop that celebrates regional and local food and drink, specialising exclusively in Victorian craft beer and ciders.
Wine lovers who’d prefer to avoid the legwork of winery visits can check in to the Woodend Wine Store and Lounge or Zarby’s Bar & Bistro. Or pop down to New Gisborne and be adorned by beautiful views of Mt Macedon and Barringo Valley at Baringo Food and Wine Co.
For a night on the tiles, Major Tom’s and Midnight Starling in Kyneton can whip you up a killer cocktail, and while you’re there, why not stay for dinner?
