The new urban beer bar situated on the bank of the Yarra River in Southbank.  30 beers on tap, a microbrewery scheduled to arrive on site shortly, cocktails if that’s your vibe and a great menu of quick, quality hand full of fun food so you can focus on your beers.   And as Hopscotch say themselves they are a ‘downbeat gathering place with a beer for every occasion’.


Described as a destination that celebrates nature, the back drop to the ‘2 hats’ awarded by The Age Good Food Guide 2015-2016 hotel is the majestic Grampians National Park.  Along with an award winning dining experience comes an impressive wine collection (also award winning), beautiful accommodation, wedding and conferencing facilities, all within a three hour drive from Melbourne.


Described by TimeOut as the prettiest live music pub going around with the most excellently ridiculous name.  The Spotted Mallard has an all star craft beer line up, the menu features some great burgers and for dessert the ‘beer float of the day’ (two scoops of vanilla ice cream in a schooner of ale).  Live music in Melbourne need more Spotted Mallards.


In Mt Eliza Village on the Mornington Peninsula the Canadian Bay Hotel offers bistro and bar casual dining and function areas.  The menu is great and the wine list extensive all in a relaxed welcome venue with superior customer service.
