Introducing Victoria’s Newest Craft Beer & Spirit Region: Cityside Beer Belt

Victoria’s vibrant beer scene just got even better with the unveiling of the Cityside Beer Belt, the state’s third designated beer region. Comprising 14 exceptional craft breweries and distilleries nestled in the heart of Inner Melbourne, this new belt promises a unique and immersive experience for beer enthusiasts and casual drinkers alike.

Spanning two distinctive areas – Port Melbourne & South Melbourne, as well as Richmond up to Clifton Hills, the Cityside Beer Belt is set to redefine Victoria’s status as a premier destination for craft beer and spirits.
