Lace up your boots and hit the cobblestones! The Collingwood Beer Trail is here to showcase all that this glorious ‘hood has to offer and celebrate the revival of Collingwood’s long lost brewing industry.

In the late 1800’s, Collingwood was the epicentre of Australian brewing with many breweries operating in the area. By the early 1900’s however, as a result of mergers, almagations and closures, all the breweries were gone.

More than a century later, Collingwood has once again become a mecca for indie craft breweries with the likes of Stomping Ground, Bodriggy, Fixation, Molly Rose and The Mill all opening within the past five years. We have now decided to join forces in a bid to support our community and highlight not only the local breweries, but the many galleries, cafes and venues in the flourishing area.

The free Collingwood Beer Trail map is available at all breweries, or by download, and you can explore the Trail in your own time during the breweries’ tap rooms trading hours. A ‘Trail Pass’ is also available for just $30 which includes delicious beer samples at all breweries and a Beer Trail tote bag once you visit all five!

EASY AS ONE-TWO-THREE um FOUR!

  1. Download the Trail Map HERE, or grab one from a participating brewery.

  2. If you like, buy the Trail Pass either online by clicking on one of the breweries below and have it delivered to your door - or gift it to a beer loving mate in your life - or buy one at a participating brewery.

  3. Embark on a self guided tour in your own time, and from whichever brewery you wish to start at. Share photos too with #collingwoodbrewerytrail.

  4. If you bought a Trail Pass, make sure you claim your beer samples and tote bag at the last brewery you visit!
