It’s the home of the Apollo Bay gins, linked to the ships that sailed off this treacherous coast many years ago. The Apollo Bay Distillery is located in the old Post Office, built in 1970, and also houses the anchor of the historic SS Casino who came to a fateful end off one of the local beaches. A visit to ABD 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 pizza, using only the finest flour and ingredients. They collaborate with local businesses including Hello Coffee who supply delicious locally roasted coffee beans.

Prickly Moses Brewery

10 Hoveys Rd
Barongarook West VIC 3249
(03) 5233 8400

The Prickly Moses brewery is located in the pristine natural environment of the Otways in southwestern Victoria, where they are blessed with the purest of rainwater. The Otways inspire us to produce beer in an environmentally responsible way, so we’ve implemented a number of green initiatives at the brewery to lessen our footprint. We harvest rainwater for use at the brewery and produce solar electricity to supplement the use of grid electricity. We also donate our spent grain to local farmers who use it as animal fodder.
The Otway Estate Bar & Cafe provides visitors with a true taste of the Otways from a selection of the wonderful beers and ciders, produced on site, and local wines. Hungry? They also offer a cafe menu and mouth-watering Woodfire Pizzas. The Prickly Moses Beers and Forbidden Fruit ciders are produced by Otway Brewing – our on-site brewery and have flavours and tastes to suit the seasons. You can relax on the decking area, or cuddle up in front of the fire. The cafe is open Thursday from 10am to 10pm, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 11pm and Sunday from 10am to 5pm.
