2 Beer Regions, 23 Breweries, 6 distilleries...

Explore, Discover and Experience the Bayside Beer Belt AND the Eastside Beer Belt on fun, immersive and educational Hop On Hop Off Tours full of exBEERiences for both locals and travellers.


Eastside Map

Southeast Melbourne is set to become the go-to ‘beercation’ destination for enthusiasts and casual beer & spirit drinkers alike.

Explore the amazing regions of Bayside or Eastside by joining us on either a ‘choose your own adventure’ Hop On Hop Off Brewery & Distillery Tour or Private Tour. On these tours you will get to taste amazing beer or spirits produced locally by independently owned and run microbreweries, meet and chat with either the brewers themselves or chief beer pourers, learn about the origins, styles, ingredients and techniques of the drinks, meet like minded people and most importantly – have a ripper of a time!

our tours

The Bayside Beer Belt is run by ‘locals’ who have lived in the bayside area their whole lives and who are proud of this unique craft ‘belt’ in Melbourne’s Southeast.

Our Hop On Hop Off Brewery & Distillery Tours are the best way for you to explore these two incredible regions. They include transport and venue reservation bookings on a ‘choose your own adventure’ schedule PLUS a busload of fun!

We also run private tours and offer both a Pay As You Go option as well as an All-Inclusive option.

For corporate tours/ events, we can include games and team bonding activities to make it the best corporate event EVER! 

wish you were beer…

Thanks for organising and hosting the fabulous ‘Craft Beer Tour of the South’, it was a thoroughly enjoyable day.  All the brewers were ready on our arrival and so willing to tell us the stories behind their breweries and beers. It all ran like clockwork but without ever feeling rushed.  Looking forward to another one… after I recover from this one. Congratulations. 5 stars plus!

If you’re looking for a way to enjoy one of the best craft beer locations in Australia then Bayside Beer Belt have you covered. A fun and knowledgeable team will share some amazing breweries and distilleries with you with bespoke tastings at each venue. Super organised, professional and well run. It’s an absolute must for any craft beer fan. Thanks for a brilliant day!

where it beer-gan

In late 2020, Nat Wilson (founder of the Bayside Beer Belt & Kingston Collective) started exploring her local bayside area and was surprised to discover how many breweries there were in such close proximity to one another.
