Further details

Melbourne’s fascination with beer and pub culture can be traced right back to the settlement of Melbourne. One of the founding fathers was a publican, our first mayor a brewer, and the first council meeting happened in a pub.

This fun and informal tour traces the history of beer consumption in the Victorian capital. We examine the early rogue settlers, the sly grog trade of gold rush era, as well as the temperance movement and conservative war time drinking habits.

The tour also explores Melbourne’s more recent liberal liquor licensing laws, the birth of the city’s laneway bars, and the explosion of small batch, craft and microbreweries.

We stop at four venues to assist on the tour. At each, we will try a delicious beer with a focus on Melbourne and Victorian microbreweries. The tour concludes with a burger supper. Check out photo’s on Facebook from the last beer lovers' walk.

Cost is $15 per student and includes:

  • beer walk with an informative guide
  • samples of beer at all four venues
  • dinner (burger, chips and beer).
