Melbourne's Microbreweries

Microbreweries in Melbourne started to grow when I was young and unappreciative of a good lager. Since then I have grown but I am not beer connoisseurr but some of the golden liquid produced by Melbourne's finest is had to resist. Here are the ones I love:

Mountain Goat started out as a hobby in a backyard and now produces four hand-crafted, all natural ales – Hightail Ale, Pale Ale, India Pale Ale and Surefoot Stout. Open Fridays 5pm–midnightCorner North and Clark streets, RichmondPh 03 9428 1180

St Arnou is named after the patron saint of brewers and you can enjoy the award winning Pale Ale and Pilsner at their Beer Bistro in the city and Beer Café in Preston. Open daily. 582 Little Collins Street, MelbournePh 03 9620 9720197 Plenty Road, PrestonPh 03 9495 1444

While we are on the subject of beer, I must mention Lucky Beer. It is the most beautiful bottle of a beer that I have ever seen, and the company website is fantastic as well. I bought a 6 pack from David Jones for a laksa party I was having, and even the box was beautiful embossed with Asian prints. This lager is an Asian style lager, brewed from natural integredients, brewed in Rutherglen. Available in the CMB & other fun places at:
