Overview

Visit the Carlton Brewhouse, located at Australia's largest brewery & home of some of Australia's favourite beers including Carlton Draught & Victoria Bitter. Here you can go on a beer expedition, following the River of Beer through which 150,000 litres of fresh beer flows each day. You'll be guided through 150 years of brewing history & knowledge as you experience the sheer scale of this iconic facility on the banks of the Yarra. Return to the Brewhouse to sample your favourite brewery fresh beers, enjoy a delicious meal, play in the Brewer's Yard or have some fun with our new touch screen TV's. The Carlton & United Brewery, Abbotsford Plant, is a genuine working brewery and production numbers vary week to week, as such, we cannot guarantee that all areas of the plant will be fully operational on the day you visit. Please call for an up-to-date production schedule. Don't have time for a tour? The Carlton BrewHouse Cafe is open Monday-Friday 9am - 4pm & Saturday 11am - 4pm and Sunday 12pm - 4pm, offering great pub meals and the freshest beer in town! Looking for a unique venue? The Carlton Brewhouse is also offered for private hire on weeknights and weekends for social or corporate events and for large group tours.

Came here on a Saturday and got a large glass of Carlton Draught. It tasted just like I was at the footy. AFL is the best! Carlton is the best!
