Billson’s Brewery is a fantastic place to visit, even for the kids! You can taste test there whole range from vodka, beer and cordials! No charge to taste test and it’s fun for the kids - we loved the cordials and came home with 8bottles ranging from $8.50 - $12 each, they are delicious mixed with lemonade or mineral water. The new owners have kept true to the history of Billsons and have done an amazing job re-opening this iconic brewery. The owners and staff are super lovey and accommodating. There is so much to explore around the brewery including old brewing/bottling equipment, carriages and an old school barber room. The food is sensational and there is a cool Speak Easy Gin Room downstairs with some board games and big comfy chairs. You can easily spend a few hours there - taste testing, exploring, having lunch & a drink or 2! We had a wonderful time and would definitely go back.

We popped in to the brewery as we headed home to Melbourne and we didn’t regret it! Nathan was so informative, kind and helpful! You are able to taste absolutely everything they make and I can say you won’t walk out empty handed. By far the beat tonic water I’ve ever had in my life (this from a non tonic drinker) all cordials and spirits were delish. Can walk through the carriage museum and even watch how the drinks are bottled! And after all that if your feeling hungry then they have you covered with a cafe, or speakeasy for a cool quiet drink! Don’t leave Beechworth without stopping in!

We went there on Friday the 3 rd ,there were 9 of us and the staff were brilliant , nothing was too much trouble. You are able to sample as many of there products as you like . We sat in the speakeasy bar and enjoyed a lovely lunch and plenty of drinks, later as we were leaving we purchased a few bottles of cordials and plenty of cans of mixed drinks . We all agreed it was a great place to visit and would definitely be back again

Stopped here to try the cordial and ended up with a car full of lovely drinks.
We toured the facility and it was all well set out and interesting.
The carriage museum was very well kitted out with some very well preserved examples.
We ended up spending a good hour in the Speak Easy Bar having some cocktails and Ginger Beer with a game of chess in some lovely leather lounge chairs.
The service at all of the counters was exceptional and we will certainly be buying more of Billsons products when we get home.
Thank you!

Loved this place - although we just dropped in for a quick sample of wares, we would have stayed longer to explore this place. Not only were all the sample offerings great, the staff were happy and a pleasure to deal with.
