BREWERY TOUR...


Have an easy day out exploring the back roads and high roads of the High Country.  River Tribe Adventures visit as many or as few as you choose on this brewery tour of the High Country.


Victoria’s High Country Brewery trail extends from the rivers to the mountains. It is a scenic drive and you will experience very tasty hand-crafted beers. There are plenty of taste differences in beers and breweries, all made with passion, the best ingredients and the pristine waters of Victoria's High Country.

See close up where the beers are brewed, maybe learn what goes into crafting a unique beer. Family friendly, the breweries have great outdoor areas for that beer in the High Country sun.


Example itinerary: 

  • Travel toward Wangaratta and either head to Hurdle Creek for Gin and a few wineries, mustards, cheeses or head straight to Wangaratta for Beer tasting at the Malt Shed Brewery. The Malt Shed is an independent Craft Brewery that combine their knowledge and passion for ‘all things malt’ to create amazing beer.
  • If you manage to pull yourself away in time you could head for King Valley Brewery or Buffalo or Black Dog, all great options for a true taste of the Australian country brewery.
  • Head up the hill in time for lunch at the Bridge Road Brewery in Beechworth for a gourmet Pizza throw down with salad and salted potatoe chats. Beechworths Bridge Brewery has a great range of tasting paddles, pints and half pints all homemade and on tap!
  • After your gourmet pizza and beer you can head to Bright and try the brewery tour* (3pm if you make it?) or try a few casual tastings, the "Bright Brewery" has plenty to choose from. Here you can taste your way through the menu and say goodbye to your tour guide or ask your guide to give you a lift back home.


The above itinerary is a suggested tour with some great ideas to help you choose your own adventure. River Tribe can talk you through the many options to help you build your own adventure or you could make it up on the day.
