#1 Craft Beer Destination on the Great Ocean Road

Beer Garden. Craft Beer. Local Wine. Local Produce. Live Music. Family-Friendly. Live Sports. TAB.

Situated on the Great Ocean Road where the hills meet the ocean. The Great Ocean Road Brewhouse is a restaurant in Apollo Bay and a craft beer haven with over 100 craft beers on offer. Warm yourself by the fire or enjoy our dog-friendly beer garden with ocean views.

On Tap we only pour the best Craft Beers, including our sister company, Otway Brewing’s Delicious line up of Prickly Moses Handcrafted Beers. Visitors to Apollo Bay will love dropping into the dog-friendly tasting room & bottle shop located behind the Brewhouse, known as Tastes of the Region. Here, people can sample local beer and wine and enjoy a produce platter showcasing locally produced cheeses, dips, bread, olive oil and more.

Stay in one of our eight Heritage Rooms upstairs! We offer budget-friendly accommodation options to suit single travellers, families and groups.

Thirteen local beers and two local ciders on tap: We support Australian Independent breweries and cider makers

The BAR opens at 11 am every day. The award-winning BISTRO opens every day for lunch and dinner. Check out our menus!
Free WIFI available!

If the dining area is full, there are still plenty of tables in the bar or beer garden

5 star ratingAwesome They brew their own beer (not surprisingly), and it is pretty good. Great pub, and great place to stop off for a really nice beer.

5 star ratingGreat beer lovers find We decided to visit after seeing the reviews on this site. Well worth a visit, their brown ale was fantastic and along with the other beers were great tasting. The staff were happy to pass on their wisdom. The pork tacos were lovely along with the prawns were great and both went well with the beers. Don’t miss this place... read more
