First judges comments in 2018

The Great Ocean Road Brewhouse  is a destination dining landmark in Apollo Bay. Its  much more than your local country pub. The Brewhouse offers quality pub meals, with generous portions at reasonable prices. You certainly won’t leave hungry! Enjoy your lunch then linger on and sample the extensive range of local craft beers and wines and enjoy the live bands. The lunch menu features traditional pub food while at dinner the menu offers a wider range of choices. There are also evenings throughout the week where special deals are offered and customer service was to a good professional standard.  But the Brewhouse in Apollo Bay really shines in the wines, beers and ciders department. It should be on your bucket list of “great pubs to try before your die”. You won’t be disappointed!

What the judges said in 2017

Edgy beachfront pub with a difference

This 1887 red-brick pub with fabulous beachfront location has been remodelled and re-invigorated by its new owners into an edgy pub with a difference.  It still has the charm of wood fires and original details but the Brewhouse now features exceptional beers and ciders and local produce that give this  pub an exciting new vibe.

Staff were great, foods, drinks and value for money good, and the Brewhouse is well worth visiting just for marvellous range of rare beers, ciders and wines.

Special strengths

Exception range of regional beers, ciders and wines, good choices of foods, bar-service, smart décor, alfresco dining areas, family friendly and good value for money.
