Took some clients here for a casual lunch. Was not disappointed! The beers they brew are great, get the tasting paddle then take a 6 pack home. Worth a day trip from Melbourne, drive is about 2 hours. Twice cooked octopus was a hit!

This place is really a gem: super friendly staff, great beer (try the Silver Top if you’re into pale ale... it was recommended to me and really good!) and above all delicious food. The ocean trout tataki is star-worthy, the fish & chips great and...More

Visited fairly early after a Platypus Paddle. Quite a varied breakfast menu at reasonable prices! Very helpful service and pleasant staff. Would have loved to try some of the beers, but an ambitious road trip schedule beckoned. Maybe next time. Thanks

Forrest Brewing Co. Is a small sibling owned microbrewery combined with a relaxed dining hall. Equal parts microbrewery, eating place and mountain biking hang-out. This 4 year old business has established a reputation for good food & great beer in the tiny Otways village - Forrest. Our brew house door and restaurant are housed within the former Forrest general store. The space is designed with a warm rustic feel and touches of reclaimed timber. Outside the sawn log tables look out across the valley and catch the sunshine and sunsets. Our kitchen serves fresh, informal, locally sourced food, paired with craft beer, local wines and freshly roasted coffee.
