St Andrews Beach Brewery

The story of St Andrews Beach Brewery dates back to the early 2000’s, when our Co-founder Andrew Purchase built the racetrack on the property for the royal family of Australian horse racing – the Freedman Brothers. When the property became available in 2015, Andrew and Michael Freedman saw an opportunity that was too good to miss. With the infrastructure in place and with a story like no other, Andrew, Michael and their passionate team of co-owners set about turning the former stables into a truly unique brewery.
Our brewery is underpinned by the philosophy to brew the finest beer on the Mornington Peninsula. Every drop of beer is brewed and packaged on-site in our state-of-the-art brewhouse and canning line using the finest hops, malt and local artesian water. Next time you’re at the stables, you’ll see our beautiful Italian brewhouse and passionate team of brewers on display for you all to see. It doesn’t get any fresher than that.
Brewing beer requires a lot of energy, so we are always looking at ways to utilise natural resources and reduce our footprint on the environment. The brewery is powered by a large solar panel farm, positioned on the north facing roofs of the stables.
On the brewing side of things, we source every drop of water from our very own artesian spring, located directly below our Mornington Peninsula property. To minimise waste, all of the spent grain from the brewhouse is donated to local farms to feed cattle, pigs and sheep.
