Holgate Brewhouse

79 High Street, Woodend, Victoria, 3442, Australia

Brewpubs serving hand-pumped real ale are rare in Australia, and Holgate is well worth seeking out. Paul and Natasha Holgate took over the lease of the stately Keatings Hotel in 2002, relocating their microbrewery there four years later (it had previously been in a large shed beside their home). They produce English-inspired ales.
