Mt Macedon dominates the landscape overlooking the Holgate brewery. It’s massive, moody and magnificent – not to mention insanely popular with tourists and locals alike. No wonder they named it after our beer!

The perfect Holgate family holiday? A US Pacific North-West beer tour, of course. Result? Our 2009 odyssey to hop heaven lives on in this tribute to the spiritual home of craft beer.

Your new best friend. A long-standing favourite among beer enthusiasts and our most awarded beer. A classic earthy English bitter you meet in the pub and invite home for a round of snooker and darts.

Some beers just won't take no for an answer. A sultry seducer, this luscious winter warmer infused with Dutch cocoa and whole vanilla beans takes an old story somewhere new and bewitching.

19th century Bohemian brewers of Plzn invented the world’s most drinkable beer. In true craft style, the 21st century Holgate brewers have re-created this classic lager, a light bodied and delicately balanced beer with serious flavour.

Big, bold and bitter, this independent American thumbs its nose at tradition and challenges true beer lovers to "hop up." Let your taste buds know who's the boss.

Five courses... Eight beers.. One night only. Contact Colenso directly to book or for enquiries.
