All geared up for an afternoon at the Hanging Rock races, we checked into the Holgate Brewhouse accommodation.... After a day (with a small win) at the races it was back to the Holgate for a Tasting Paddle then dinner. Really fun, a very "local" and "real" thing to do! The accommodation is basic and you can hear some of... More

Visiting the area with friends who were running late and I popped in for a pot of the Mt Macedon Ale. It was delicious and once friends turned up, we decided to stay for lunch. A good menu with a variety of different sized dishes. I had the burger which was fantastic. Juicy, a little sloppy (this is a good... More

We visited here as I'd been told great things about it, we definitely weren't disappointed! Deciding on a tasting paddle.. We settled into the beer garden in the gorgeous afternoon sun. Make sure you order the housemade potato wedges... They are yummy!! The only negative thing I'd have to say is that smoking is still allowed in the beer garden...... More

Hi Sarah, Thanks for visiting. I believe new smoking laws are coming in soon to separate smokers from outdoor dining. Once these laws are in place, it will be easier for us to keep the courtyard smoke free. Hope you visit again soon! More

Table booked for lunch due to Melbourne Cup day. Staff were bubbly &friendly. Great ambiance to the building with good food also. Generous food portions certainly went away feeling full. Terrific selection of beers with a sampler slab to try different types. Plus wine and ciders to please anyone.

I've been waiting for years to visit this place on the back of my love of Holgate Beers. I was not disappointed. All your favourites are on tap and the food is excellent. I just wish I caught the train up here instead of driving! I will be back!

Came here one day with my parents for Lunch. Cosy little place to eat, staff are really friendly. There's a great selection of food and the meals are massive for good price. I'm not a beer drinker but there is a lot of beer sampling. They brew some beer out the back where you can go and have a look... More

Sunday 27/09/15 saw 32 of us travelling by VLine train to Woodend for lunch at the Holgate Brewhouse. Sampling Holgate's extensive range of beers whilst seated in the glorious sunshine was a very popular choice. Lunch in the dining room was excellent! Beautifully cooked & presented meals served by professional staff. My steak was perfect. Then back to enjoy the... More

Good food - but GREAT beer. In the IPA tradition, these craft beers are a delight. (And yes, if you want a nice wine, there is a good range of those too)
