Beer to get off the freeway for.

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)

Great ambience, strolling around, wine in hand, enjoying art work - Holgate Brewhouse is part of Woodend Art Group's art walk program

This has become a regular Friday night drink and dinner location. Menu changes regularly and never disappoints. We usually sit in the bar area but have also sat in the restaurant when we invite friends. Brews are great and always try the specials. As IPA lovers, Road Trip is consistent and hits the spot. Staff are friendly and chatty. Great... More

This has become a regular favourite of ours. Located in a gorgeous area, the brewhouse has friendly staff, a fine selection of onsite brewed beers plus wines etc and a great menu with specials also. Outdoor seating is small but nice depending on time of year. Inside they cater well for families and other groups too plus a bar area... More

We called on the Saturday night the Eagles were playing at Hanging Rock. It was busy! This did not phase the staff, of which there were plenty to cater for the needs of all the customers. We had the pie and chips, it was delicious, we would recommend a visit to the pub where Holgates beer is still brewed on... More

We went with friends for a Saturday lunch. The choice of local beers was very good each time we go my husband tries different ones. The meals are good value and quiet tasty although we did laugh that we all ordered different meals and they all came out with the same coloured gravy on them . Even though they tasted... More

Never ventured to this pub when it was keatings but it has definitely transformed from its old days. Holgates brewery is worth a visit. The locally made beer is very nice and my husband was quite impressed. The food is equally as good. My husbands steak was large and cooked to his liking and the veggie burger with crispy chips...

Had a nice lunch at the Holgate Brewhouse with another couple on a Saturday. The place was quite busy and the service, while a tad cavilier, was ok. We all ordered the Beef in Stout pie and the waitress duly informed us we had to go to the bar to order. Quite an amusing system although she might have had... More

My boyfriend and I came down to Holgate for my birthday weekend. We indulged in the spa and facial overnight package and I cannot lie... It was probably one of the best times we've ever had. The spa treatment was heavenly and we were treated like royalty. Then over at hogate the staff were so friendly, helpful and just joyous... More

I stopped their for a break with my family. Their own beer is very tasty and the food was well loved my kids. They also served salads as an alternative to the traditional pub food. We will be back.
