After a big day of bike riding and gallivanting around town, we’ve found the perfect way to wind down. 

While you might be used to city queues and cramped, over-crowded bars, here in Wangaratta we’ve got you covered when it comes to great places to enjoy a quiet beer or a lazy, afternoon session.

Acclaimed for our spectacular mountainous scenery, award winning cool climate wines and fresh seasonal produce, the Rural City of Wangaratta is also home to a great range of breweries and bars to help put a little excitement into your weekend.

Offering a premium range of beers on tap, all hand crafted from premium malted barley, hops and yeast strains with pure Warby Range water, there’s something to suit everyone. Housed in a spectacular 100-year-old cellar door, the rich antique and structure of the building almost rivals the great tasting beers!
