Few Australian beers are as world famous as Carlton and there’s no better place to sample the classic Aussie brew than Melbourne’s Carlton Brewhouse. The iconic brewhouse is only one of Australia’s largest breweries, producing more than 420 million liters of beer each year, including top beers like Carlton Draught, Fosters, Victoria Bitter and Pure Blonde.
As well as being a working brewery, the BrewHouse also has a dedicated visitor facility, where visitors can go behind-the-scenes and see the production rooms and bottling plant. As well as discovering the brewery’s 100-year history, visitors can also shop for souvenirs at the Beer Gear shop, enjoy expert-led tastings or pair food and beer at the BrewHouse Café.
The Carlton BrewHouse is located in Abbotsford, around 4km east of downtown Melbourne and is open Monday- Saturday from 10am to 4pm. Entrance is by guided tour only.
