  • Food, Wine and Breweries
    Billson's Brewery and Tasting Room

    The historic brewery in Last Street was built in 1865 while Beechworth was at the height of the Gold Rush. The site was chosen because a natural spring occurred here and the pure water has been used in all of the beverages to this day. In the 1920's, beer production ceased and a soft drink and cordial factory was started. Billson's are now under new owners and have made huge changes to this old brewery, including reintroduction of craft beers and spirits, plus a retro cafe setting and bar.

    Bridge Road Brewers

    Conceived by Ben Kraus in 2004/2005 in his Dad's back shed, this Beechworth brewery and pizza kitchen is more than worth a visit. Bridge Road Brewers has countless awards and a beer list to quench even the most avid beer hunter's thirst a five minutes walk from the Armour Motor Inn.
