BEER TOUR YARRA VALLEY

Between 10,000 and 15,000 years ago, some humans discontinued their nomadic hunting and gathering and settled down to farm. Grain was the first domesticated crop that started that farming process. The oldest proven records of brewing are about 6,000 years old and refer to the Sumerians. They had discovered a "divine drink" which certainly was a gift from the Gods.

With this tour we take you to the Major Watering Holes ( Of The God Oden ) in the Yarra Valley.

We start this tour by travelling the winding roads of Warrandyte to Healesville where we visit Buckleys Brewery named after William Buckley the famous escaped convict. The beers are traditionally brewed, non-filtered and full flavoured. This is Yarra Valleys First Traditional Brewery with Solar Heated Brew. There are 4 beers to choose from. This is where you will be taken through the brewery and shown the step by step production method of making Beer.

There is also a personal selection of some of the worlds other great beers.

Next we travel the rolling hills across to Yarra Glen to visit Hargreaves Hill Brewery this is a family owned mico-brewery that brews with rainwater, they make the ales the old fashioned way no preservatives, no chemicals or sugars.
