Holgate Brewhouse is a family owned, 100 per cent independent craft-brewing company, cranking out classic beer styles in their microbrewing plant in Woodend, 45 minutes north of Melbourne in the central highlands of Victoria.
A visit to Holgate Brewhouse at Keatings Hotel is the best way to get intimate with the eight Holgate draught beers or even better stay the night upstairs in the fully refurbished stylish accommodation and enjoy a fabulous restaurant meal, beers and local wines.
The beers are all traditionally brewed, with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. They just use four ingredients, malt, hops, yeast and pure Macedon Ranges water. Their Real Ales are served from Beer Engines fully imported from England, these babies pump up the ale from the cellar in the time honoured tradition.
They have a 'Tasting Paddle' available where you get a 90 millilitres sample of all the Holgate beers to try before deciding on your favourite! Or arrange a brewery tour in conjunction with an accommodation package.
Relax and kick-back in the friendly atmosphere of the cosy bar and lounge and enjoy the eight Holgate draught beers, a superb local wine list, Byron Bay grown coffee, newspapers and great views across the village of Woodend and a friendly and warm atmosphere. Live music most Friday nights.
Check out the restaurant and outdoor dining courtyard that offers a modern Australian menu including house-made breads, cakes and platters of local produce. Many of the dishes, including their popular Beef and Ale pie, are cooked using the Holgate beer.Visit Website
