Worth a detour The Mornington Peninsula brewing and distilling scene offers a range of choice from craft brews to cider made from apples grown in the hinterland and distilleries that handcraft gin, brandy, rum and whisky from secret recipes. The Beer, Cider and Spirits Trail creates a path to these boutique operations so you can plan the ultimate itinerary. Being an hour out of Melbourne means most of your time can be spent enjoying the trail rather than getting to it and there is nothing quite like the experience of visiting the place where the tipple or amber ale is distilled or brewed. Not to mention access to new limited edition batches made exclusively for tap house release. visitmp .org/BCStrail Whatever your reason for visiting the Mornington Peninsula put the Beer, Cider and Spirits Trail on the list.
