Prickly Moses Brewery
Great beer comes from good water, and at the Prickly Moses brewery we source the best. But we believe it takes something more... We call it Otway magic, but you might know her as Mother Nature.
Our handcrafted, natural brewing process begins in the Otways, where we use pure rainwater from the lush rainforests. We believe that leaving a sustainable, responsible footprint on our environment is as essential to what we do as providing you with beers that you can enjoy in any situation. That’s why we’ve implemented even more green initiative at the brewery to lessen our footprint. We use solar electricity to supplement the use of grid electricity and we donate our spent grain to local farmers who use it as animal fodder. To that, we add in responsibly sourced, high quality ingredients to create flavour profiles and aromas that invigorate the senses and leave your taste buds begging for more. Prickly Moses is proudly independent, proudly Australian made, and proud to continue exploring and creating the most delicious beers around from the finest ingredients with the best environmental practices in the industry.
Because that’s what you deserve. And it’s what Mother Nature deserves too.

Queenscliff Distillery is a small boutique distillery, situated on the sea swept entrance to Port Phillip bay. We distill all our spirits in a traditional method using a copper pot still built in Griffith, NSW. Located underground in an old beer and spirit cellar at the Queenscliff Brewhouse, you can see our still working away from day to day. We use juniper from Macedonia and a unique blend of self foraged and organic botanicals that set our gins apart. We hand zest our fruit and botanicals, hand bottle & label, making sure only the best product is put to market.

Apollo Bay Distillery
At the Apollo Bay Distillery we produce Apollo Bay gin and Nitro Vodka. We aim to preserve the tales of the town and embody the spirit of Apollo Bay.
Our gins are linked to the ships that sailed off this treacherous coast many years ago and serve as a strong reminder of Apollo Bay’s nautical history. Located in the old Apollo Bay Post Office, built in 1970, we also house the anchor of the historic SS Casino who came to a fateful end off one of the local beaches. A visit to Apollo Bay Distillery would not be complete without trying a gin flight consisting of our handcrafted gins, distilled onsite, using local botanicals. Our beautiful copper column still is not to be missed! These unique and artisan gins can be enjoyed alongside a freshly made wood fired pizzas, using only the finest flour and ingredients.
