Robe Town Brewery

Limestone Coast

Riding the crest of Australia's craft beer wave, Robe Town uses old-fangled methods to produce its hearty Shipwreck Stout and an excellent amber ale (among other creative brews). The brewery occupies a low-key shed in the eastern outskirts of town. Heavily involved in the annual Robe Beer Fest in October. Open daily during school holidays.
