"Putting the Ale back into Daylesford" are the guiding words that Daylesford Brewing Co.'s founders Dave Gill and Jessica Holmes aim to follow.

Established in 2014 by the pair and driven by their individual passions, they sought a lifestyle change back to Jessica's home town of Daylesford in the heart of the Macedon Ranges infamous spa country to do exactly that. With their backgrounds in environmental science and design, a brand of craft beer has been created that reflects upon and remembers the rich era of beer drinking and brewing during the 1800's gold rush period.

With plans to re-establish a full scale production brewery and cellar door in Daylesford underway, Daylesford Brewing Co. beer is currently available in and around Daylesford venues with further regional and metropolitan expansion in the pipeline too. Check out our stockists page for where you can currently find us available on tap and in bottles. 


Established during Victoria's gold rush period in the 1850's, Daylesford is a vibrant country town about an hour fifteen north west of Melbourne and is famous for it's natural mineral springs, it's cosmopolitan lifestyle attractions of day spas and wellness, producer driven wine and dining, artisan crafts and galleries, boutique accommodation and much, much more. 

Any sensible miner back in the 19th century demanded a beer at the end of a long days work searching for gold, and there were a number breweries that existed in and around Daylesford and Hepburn Springs from this period, along with countless pubs and drinking holes.

Sadly, the known breweries of this era are long gone but the Daylesford Brewing Company are today in the process of reinstating the tradition and heritage of local beer from this captivating town and region.
