The Story

We reckon that most people spend too much time doing what they have to do, not what they want to do.

Well that was us a few years back, until we met the Shivering Man. Inspired by his bare all attitude we joined him in taking the plunge to do what we really wanted – to run a brewery with mates.

And that’s what Coldstream Brewery is all about, taking the time to do what you want to do.

Come out for a visit, you might even hear a little about the infamous Shivering Man…


The Pub

Visit the home of the Shivering Man at Coldstream in the Yarra Valley. Taste through a paddle in the Brewery Bar, catch up with mates over a pint in the Pub, enjoy lunch or dinner packed full of Yarra Valley produce or book out the whole lot for your next big night. You might even learn a little about the infamous Shivering Man.. Open from 11am , every day excluding Christmas Day.

The Beer

The boys started out brewing in what is now The Brewery Bar.

A lots changed since 2007 – they’ve added three new beers to their line-up along with a cider and they’re now available nationwide.

Brewing no longer happens onsite but the beers are true to the original recipes; high quality hops, malt and yeast that were trialled, tested and tasted many a time out at the Pub.

There’s no better way to honour a former Brewery than to turn it into a pub so come pay your respects and have a brew or two.

Groups of 10+ please call in advance.

The Cider

Made from 100% Victorian apples, our cider is pure goodness, no concentrates or powders here.

Our apples are crushed and then cold fermented – essentially the magical turning apples into alcohol process happens in the cold  – giving our cider its delightful fizz.

We finish with a filter to leave our Coldstream Cider crystal clear and that’s it.

Coldstream Cider – clean, crisp and ready to drink.

The Store

A light, hoppy European style lager. We keep things fairly traditional using Saaz hops straight from the Czech Republic with just a dash from the UK.
A cool ferment followed by long cool conditioning gives you our Pilsner – one thirst quenching lager.


Our Gold Ale both Munich & Crystal malts for sweet bready flavour.We then add Galaxy & Citra hops to the whirpool, and finally dry hopped with Galaxy & Enigma to give a floral finish. This style of beer bridges the gap between lagers and ales.

Our expression of an Australian style pale ale is a light & floral one with a balanced bitterness throughout.Using Maris Otter & Joe White Munich malts to create a rich & slightly nutty base. We reckon it’s our best expression we have created yet!

Chocolate and Golden Naked – always a good combination, particularly when they’re two of the six malts used in our Grand Porter.

Smooth and dark with caramel and burnt toffee flavours this Ale came from 18th Century London – there’s a good reason it’s alive and well today.

Just like drinking crisp Victorian apples.

We could tell you it’s medium dry and the colour of pale straw with a subtle touch of spice but really, what’s better than crisp apples in a glass?

Headed to a festival with a no glass policy? Worried about bottles rolling around in the back of the caravan? Prefer the press of cold metal against your lips?

Never fear we’ve taken our delicious Apple Cider and popped it in a can.

Our pear cider is a medium sweet style loaded with real pear character, light in the mouth, sparkling with a clean moreish finish.

Made from 100% Victorian grown pears and fermented in the Yarra Valley.
