St Andrews Beach Brewery – Contemporary crafted beers and facility
Address: 160 Sandy rd, Fingal, VIC 3939
Entranceway at St Andrews Brewery.
Once a fully functioning race-horse training facility which saw up to 80 thoroughbred horses, many of which went on to win the Melbourne Cup, is now home to one of the Peninsula’s finest craft breweries.
The atmosphere is very relaxed as you wonder through the lush beer garden, which hosts training boxes that can be reserved for groups to enjoy a meal and a few brews. Once inside, you can settle in by the fire and catch a game up on one of the screens, or simply relax with a cold beer by the bar and spy the inner-workings of the brewery behind you.

All beers are made and bottled on-site at the 25HL brewery. All four beers in the range are named with reference to the unique racing history of the property. The 6 Furlongs Pale Ale being the signature brew, The Strapper Australian Lager, Box 54 Golden Ale and the Race Day Cloudy Pilsner. All carefully crafted by a specialised team of brewers with a dedicated history in the Australian brewing industry.

The history of this site is ever-present, with horse stables framing a relaxed beer garden and outdoor dining pavilion, a unique feature that really sets this brewery aside from any other establishment on the Peninsula. The vision for the owners of St Andrews Beach Brewery is to sustainably support the facility by making use of the 92-acre property, currently home to over 8000 apple and pear cider trees and enormous race-track vegetable patch.

What we like
This is a great place to end a tour, groups get the opportunity to have some time to themselves in a laid-back environment and catch-up over a few beers.
What we don’t like
Not too keen to take bigger group bookings, it can be difficult to secure a spot on busy afternoons.
