MELBOURNE | St Andrews Beach Brewery is located in Fingal on the Mornington Peninsula and is one of the most unique breweries we’ve visited in a while. Unlike the usual former warehouse spaces that most breweries occupy, St Andrews is set on a 92-acre property which was once home to the Freedman brothers horse training facilities. Subzero, Doriemus, Makybe Diva, and Mummify were all trained here.

The old stables houses the main part of the brewery, with 16 of the former horse boxes converted into booths named after some of the most famous horses to be trained here. Between the booths is a large open space full of tables and seats, and this leads into the brewpub, a large space with a long bar and glass windows that look onto the brewing equipment. All up the venue can hold 180 people

The kitchen is headed up by Jeff Young (ex-The Pantry in Brighton) and the food is the kind of stuff you want to eat when enjoying a few beers at a brewery – pizzas, burgers, salads and sides. The old 1,200 metre racetrack is currently being used to grow fruit and vegetables, and to raise chickens, pigs and sheep, all of which are used by the kitchen. The racetrack is also used to grow some hops, and will eventually grow the pears and apples (8,000 trees have been planted) that St Andrews will use to make their own ciders. The aim is for half of everything used by the brewery and kitchen to come from the property within five years.

Head Brewer Dermot O’Donnell (ex Tooheys, CUB, Asahi) is the man who created the Cricketer’s Arms range of beers and like those beers, the selection on offer at St Andrews is aimed at those looking for something sessionable to drink. It’s about providing people with a gateway into craft beer without alienating them. To that end the beers are styles like lagers, pilsners, golden and pale ales. This isn’t the place to find lacto soured brettanomyces concoctions, however once the brewery has settled into a rhythm you can expect to see some hoppier beers and experimental one-off releases.

For those who aren’t into beer, a small but quality selection of local sparkling, red and white wines and cider are available along with soft drink, juice, coffee and tea.
