Freddie Wimpoles

Melbourne – South Of The Yarra

Showcasing some of the best breweries and beers found south of the Yarra!

There's great beer to be found all over Melbourne these days, and for Pint of Origin 2024 Freddie Wimpoles is heading south of the Yarra, with a particular focus on the southeast, where you'll find some of the best and innovative breweries in Victoria.

We are lucky enough to be showcasing multiple beers from 14 of these breweries. 

Our brewery line up includes the following: CBCo, Boatrocker, Bad Shepherd, Banks, Deeds, BoJaK, 2 Brothers, KAIJU!, Dainton, Westside Ale Works, Stomping Ground Moorabbin, Wolf of the Willows, Brick Lane and Ocean Reach. 

Each brewery is bringing a different rotational tap for the ten-day event with froths ranging from barrel-aged imperial stouts and cracking pale ales to American amber ales and even a couple of top secret brews!! 

We are bringing you a range of events throughout the week starting with a hospitality boilermaker masterclass on Monday, May 13, craft beer trivia on Tuesday May 14, and rep & brewer Q&A and tasting on Wednesday May 15.

We've got beer and boilermaker tasting paddles available all week, live music and so much more! 

Check out our social media or the listings below for details on how to book/register for the events, and we'll see you at the bar!
