Bridge Road Brewers
This award-winning brewery is worth the road trip to Beechworth — for both its beer and its pretzels.
Bridge Road Brewers is located in the historic gold mining town of Beechworth, which is a town stuck in the 19th century in the most picturesque of ways (and a reason for a visit in itself). But the biggest draw for us is the beer, and Bridge Road is constantly turning out something new. While visiting, seek out the Chevalier series and the Mayday Hills collection — this line of barrel-aged and wild-fermented farmhouse beers are the best to come out of the brewery yet.
Another reason to visit the brewery is the menu. The kitchen — under co-owner Maria Kraus — churns out Austrian–Italian-inspired pizzas and chewy pretzels that are baked daily.
