    What to Expect
    Visit the Carlton Brewhouse, located at Australia’s largest brewery and home of some of Australia’s favorite beers including Carlton Draught and Victoria Bitter. Here you can go on a beer expedition, following the River of Beer through which 150,000 liters of fresh beer flows each day. You’ll be guided through 150 years of brewing history & knowledge as you experience the sheer scale of this iconic facility on the banks of the Yarra.

    Return to the Brewhouse to sample your favorite brewery fresh beers, savor some lunch, play in the Brewer’s Yard or enjoy some fun and games on the new touch screen display.

    The BrewHouse Cafe is open 11.30am - 3.30pm, Tuesday to Sunday and some Thursday evenings. Join them for a delicious meal before or after your tour matching perfectly with one of their fresh, cold beers!

    The Carlton and United Brewery, Abbotsford Plant, is a genuine working brewery and production numbers vary week to week, as such, it cannot be guaranteed that all areas of the plant will be fully operational on the day you visit. Please call directly for an up-to-date production schedule.
