Red Hill Brewery

Dave and Karen Golding abandoned their former lives in the city to set up the Mornington Peninsula's first brewery. Just five minutes spent there and you'll be hurriedly scrawling 'Dear boss, I've had a revelation...� on the nearest napkin.

Nestled among trees on the slopes of Red Hill South with the Goldings' pets roaming the neighbouring fields, Red Hill Brewery has been knocking out traditional British and European-influenced ales since 2005, enhanced by a growing number of seasonal and one-off specials.

Many of the beers have become regarded as modern Aussie classics, in particular the much sought after Imperial Stout, one of the very first beers of its style to be brewed locally. Their beers are made with hops grown onsite including, of course, the British Golding variety. Visit at different times throughout the year to watch the plans shoot from roots to 16 foot climbers.

These days, the brewery bar is open every Friday to Sunday plus public holidays with extended hours during the summer. On special occasions, you'll find the Goldings inviting local restaurants and food trucks to supply the dishes to pair with their beers. It's a range that continues to grow with the aforementioned classics joined by new one-offs – often accompanied by barrel aged versions too; for their tenth birthday in 2015, they created ten red beers. Weekends such as their Secret Stash see a wide range of vintage and rare beers pulled from the cellar too.

You can also now book to stay at the brewery, with the Golding's former home available to rent as the Brewer's Cottage complete, of course, with a well stocked fridge. Book via the Red Hill website.

Red Hill Pilsner

The Pilsner is dead! Long live the Pilsner! Yes, the first move by Red Hill on the beer front since pulling down the shutters of their onsite bar and restaurant to focus on making more beers is to add a new one to their permanent range. So, joining the Golden Ale, Scotch Ale and Wheat Beer comes the Pilsner. Not the Bohemian Pilsner that was one of their summer seasonals, but a newbie that's changed in more ways than losing its prefix.

Wheat Beer

This recreation of the German wheat beer style boasts big fruit aromas - banana to the fore but suggestions of peach and nectarine too - caused by the special yeast and higher fermentation temperatures. Highly carbonated, it pours with a large, white head with the fruitiness of the yeast balanced by a tartness on the palate from the use of a large amount of wheat.
