Red Duck Brewery
The Red Duck brewery is near Lake Purrumbete, just east of Camperdown, on the Princess Highway.
The first micro brewery in the south west, Red Duck make a delicious range of beers with lots of seasonal specialties.
You can get Red Duck in Melbourne at the Vic Market and other places, but it is lovely to come to the source and experience the beautiful natural beauty of Lake Purrumbete. They also, occasionally, have 'Live like a brewer' days. You can go in and do all the work of producing a batch of ale. At the end of this unique experience you take home a mixed case of Red Duck beers.
This winery began brewing its own beer in early 2007 and now offers five varieties on tap. Their label is Prickly Moses and you can choose from the Otway Plisner, Otway wheat beer, Otway Ale, Otway Moses Red Ale and Otway Farmhouse ale.
It is open 7 days from 10am to 5pm. To get there from the Princes Highway, you head south from Colac on the C155 (Lavers Hill Road). Their website recommends you look for the sign to the Otway Fly treetop walk. Otway Estate is at 10-30 Hoveys Road, Barongarook 3249.
