Welcome to the
Great Ocean Road Brewhouse

Home to Prickly Moses Handcrafted Beer

The iconic Great Ocean Road Brewhouse is a cornerstone of Apollo Bay’s coastal town. It has welcomed tourists and locals since 1887. This magnificent grand old lady, the former Ballarat Hotel, is a must-see on the Great Ocean Road, and home to Prickly Moses Handcrafted Beer.

You’ll love the vibrant atmosphere, spacious beer gardens, and roaring fires at the Brewhouse. After soaking up the relaxed environment that surrounds Apollo Bay, you can pass by the Brewhouse to make your day complete. 

The dining menu includes classic pub favorites as well as a variety of modern dishes that will appeal to everyone in your group. Try our Prickly Moses XPA, Pale Ale, Light, and more. As well as a variety of seasonal beers.

Our tasting room and bottle shop, Tastes of the Region, offers various tasting experiences, and a selection of local produce and local, national, and international craft beers, ciders, wines, gins, and more. 

The hotel is also a great spot to enjoy live entertainment. There are acoustic shows every weekend, and other special events, trivia nights, and a happy hour to keep you amused.

We offer accommodation as well and have some spaces available to host special events, from cocktail parties to sit-down dinners, corporate seminars, weddings, or special celebrations.
