Forrest Brewing Co. Is a small sibling owned microbrewery combined with a relaxed dining hall. Equal parts microbrewery, eating place and mountain biking hang-out. This 4 year old business has established a reputation for good food & great beer in the tiny Otways village - Forrest. Our brew house door and restaurant are housed within the former Forrest general store. The space is designed with a warm rustic feel and touches of reclaimed timber. Outside the sawn log tables look out across the valley and catch the sunshine and sunsets. Our kitchen serves fresh, informal, locally sourced food, paired with craft beer, local wines and freshly roasted coffee.
