The food is wonderful, the drinks are amazing (especially Alfred’s Peculiar Gin), and the staff are awesome! So friendly and helpful- nothing was too much trouble. And the atmosphere of this delightful old building really made the visit special.

Fabulous burgers (we tried a few), great beers and gins (we had their ‘paddles’ - selection thereof), friendly service. Beautifully restored historic site.

Can't wait to return!
Nov 2021 • Couples
We were headed to Bright and decided to book Billson's Brewery for a late lunch at a friend's recommendation. We arrived a little early to do some tastings. Although not gin drinkers, the tastings were quite nice. The coffee liqueur was lovely and we were also given a few tastings of it mixed with different cordials. Then we moved on to the premixed Vodka drinks. These are delicious! My favourite was the newly released Fruit Tangle. Tastes just like fruit tingles! With a bit of a buzz happening, we moved on to lunch and drinks. Hubby had a beer tasting paddle and I continued with Fruit Tangles. We shared a charcuterie board which was also delicious. On our way out we stocked up on coffee liqueur, cordials and premix cans. All the staff we interacted with were really friendly. Looking forward to returning with friends another time!

Drinks with a side of food
Nov 2021 • Friends
Popped in for a quick bite to eat for dinner. We were squeezed in last minute due to a cancellation. Food was good and drinks were amazing, staff were very helpful and insightful. If you love childhood drinks with a dash of vodka I couldn’t recommend this place more

A quick day visit to Beechworth
Nov 2021
The entire atmosphere from the moment you walk into the tasting area. The staff are brilliant. There was not one staff member that I would rate 10/10. I tasted a number of flavours I would never have thought I’d like and thoroughly enjoyed it. We even ended up having dinner here and that experience was just as good as the tasting area. Great staff great food.
Not that we had any (young kids) but this is a great family friendly place or somewhere even non drinkers can enjoy with cordial and alcohol tasting.
Thank you for a great experience. I had a fantastic time.
I didn’t get all their names but thanks to all the staff in both the tasting and restaurant. You guys rock!

Such a great place to visit ! A must do
Oct 2021 • Couples
Billsons brewery was the best part of our Beechworth getaway.

We loved the venue,
The variance of food/ drinks and cocktails available was great.

We both did a tasting paddle of gin and beer.
Safe to safe the Billsons best ale was the best beer I have ever had!

The colour changing gin was mesmerising and we both could not stop smiling and laughing it was such a fun time.

My partner ordered the bourbon beef burger and fell absolutely in love. Apparently was to die for.
I had the pork koftas and some shoestring friends, both came out as very generous servings and I could not stop eating!

We were greeted at the tasting bar by the friendliest young man who made us feel very welcome , he mixed up a few different flavours together that we wouldn't have thought of putting together and were incredible. Unfortunately we didn't catch his name, he does have ginger hair and a bright cheery attitude if that helps identify him , he just knew what to try out on us. We did make purchases and we will be back , most definately. The cordials are devine and have such a beautiful scent to them too

Best Brewery Experience
Jul 2021
Our whole experience was fantastic. Beautifully restored and a lovely set up inside. The staff were very helpful and extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Extremely tasty food and terrific drinks selection. The Gin samples at $12 for three flavours is a must try. Had the beer samples as well, which was also great value. Would definately return with no hesitations. Be sure to book as extremely busy.
