Creative collaboration keeping local beer industry alive

Six breweries, all part of Mornington Peninsula’s Beer, Cider + Spirits Trail, closed their Taproom doors in March, adhering to Government restrictions for Covid19.

Channelling their creativity, this brewing community have put their heads together to get the freshest mix of locally-brewed beers into the hands of Victorians – launching the Beach Box.

The Mornington Peninsula Brewers’ Beach Box is a mixed 12-pack, with two styles  of beer from each of six independent breweries in the region. The Beach Box showcases some of the finest beers from this craft liquor hotbed  – all brewed within a 25-kilometre radius. It contains brews from the Peninsula’s oldest craft brewery (Red Hill Brewery), to one of its newest (TWØBAYS Brewing Co), and everything in between, including Jetty Road Brewery, St Andrews Beach Brewery, Mornington Peninsula Brewery and Dainton Brewery.

Grant Rodgers, Jetty Road Brewery Managing Director, says: “this is exactly the  kind of project the Peninsula needs right now. It’s an amazing community we have  here – and we’re fortunate to have some of Australia’s finest producers on our  doorstep. In a time when Victorians can’t enjoy the Peninsula in its full glory, we  hope everyone can sample great local craft beer to remind them of great times  – and to look forward to the better times!”

Richard Jeffares, CEO and Founder at TWØBAYS Brewing Co, says: “Beach boxes are an iconic symbol of everything the Mornington Peninsula  stands for – a simple outdoor life where everyone can enjoy the variety of this  beautiful region, and what it has to offer. Craft liquor is a large driver of tourism  down here and the Beach Box is collaboration at its best.” 

A limited run of the mixed 12-pack will be available from all good bottle shops and  liquor outlets on the Mornington Peninsula, including Jetty Road Brewery and Red Hill Brewery also online at ​​ and ​​.
