Beer Travel: The Beer Lovers Guide To Melbourne

Beer Travel: The Beer Lovers Guide To Melbourne
Wed Aug 22 2012 by Crafty Pint

A few weeks' back, The Crafty Pint joined Dave Carswell, founder of the Melbourne By Foot tour company, on his latest venture. The Beer Lovers Guide To Melbourne is a nighttime walking tour of the CBD focusing on the history of Melbourne since its founding and, in particular, its beer and pub culture.

It takes in the first inns, Six O'Clock Swill, the rise of craft beer, laneways and plenty more. It also takes in stops at four Melbourne venues for beers: the Mitre Tavern, Penny Blue, Beer DeLuxe and Young & Jackson’s. You can read our story on the tour here.

Joining us on the trip was Chip Henriss, a professional journalist and communicator for 20 years, who shot and edited this short film. Chip describes himself as “Passionate about beer and brewing” and is looking “to help small breweries find affordable ways to promote their products.”

If you like what you see and are interested in finding out more about his services, you can email him at or call him on 0408 039 711.
