The key update to this tour is the addition of the new Willie the Boatman brewery to the tour.
Recently opened to the public in an old paint factory on Mary Street in St. Peters, Willie the Boatman is a very home grown brewery.
At the front of the building is the tasting room which retains a lot of the old features and character of the building with some tasteful additions, such as the bar.
Set up by Pat and Nick using as much recycled material as possible, the brewery includes part of an old dairy, a piece of equipment rescued from a Holden factory, and some old Tooborac fermenting vessels.
