The regionally inspired menu is available across three unique dining spaces. The Taproom restaurant, boasting 16 taps, cushioned booths and expansive dining tables provides plenty of space for the whole family to enjoy. While downstairs in the brewery cellar the Speakeasy bar will transport you back to the roaring 20’s. This moody, charismatic space offers intimate seating with classic leather chesterfield sofas and high-top tables, decadent glassware and antique charm. Or, make your way outside to the dog friendly Beer Garden, decked out with misters and heaters providing the perfect climate control all year round.

    We enjoyed our lunch at Billsons brewery, with a lovely environment, really good staff though they were a little inexperienced. We are door to the Aaron Cheney balls but were a little disappointed with the hamburgers.

    This is the second time we have been here. The renovations that have been done are outstanding. The meals are great value for money. We had the ginger beer with our meals and a coffee after. Would highly recommend the Gin tasting paddle.

    Billsons Brewery is quite the little gem in beautiful Beechworth. We have visited Billsons many times before to pickup much loved libations but on this occasion we stopped in for a hearty lunch on our way to Bright with our fur baby in tow. Delicious food, welcoming and attentive staff definitely made for a lovely afternoon, and is one of the reasons why we will always come back … oh and the Pumpkin Arancini I must say is always a good idea. Compliments to the chef on this very flavoursome dish that was so moreish I could’ve easily eaten another serving. Delicious!

    The pizza was easily the best in town. Great range of beers. Staff seemed to be rushing and the "jokes" came off a bit snarky. Would definitely recommend going just avoid the lunch rush

    Thanks for visiting Beechworth. Just wondering if this review was for another venue in town? We don't have pizza on our menu (but there is another brewery with great pizza!).
