Helicopter Brewery Tour from Melbourne to St Andrews Beach Brewery in Mornington Peninsula

Experience the ultimate helicopter brewery tour from Melbourne to St Andrew's Beach Brewery in Mornington Peninsula. This helicopter tour is the perfect alternative to traditional venues like Red Hill Brewery and offers an exciting, year-round adventure for groups of friends looking for a relaxed atmosphere, mouthwatering lunch menu and outstanding craft beer.

St Andrews Beach Brewery is a must-visit brewery that calls Mornington Peninsula home and is housed in an existing racehorse training facility that’s had a significant facelift and been transformed into the most unique beer garden outside Melbourne.

The Ultimate Mornington Peninsula Brewery Tour with thoroughbred racehorse DNA

The brewery pays homage to the property and location's storied racing past by naming each of its signature brews after aspects of horse racing, such as the 6 Furlongs Pale Ale, The Strapper Australian Lager, Box 54 Golden Ale, and The Apprentice Session Ale.

The former racehorse training facility was once the training ground for some of Australia's most famous thoroughbred racehorses including Group 1 winner Makybe Diva, Mummify and Doriemus.

The former horse stables have now morphed into a private lunch booth, and the existing 1200-metre training track has been transformed into a giant apple orchard to make way for their home track apple cider. 

This unique transformation has allowed St Andrew's Beach Brewery to protect the location's horse racing heritage while creating a unique brewery, bar and restaurant atmosphere in the heart of St Andrew's Beach, unlike any other winery venue or craft brewery on the Mornington Peninsula. It's a venue that's now famous among locals and international tourists visiting Mornington all year round.
