Tar Barrel is a well known 'local's corner' on the Mornington Peninsula and named by road builders storing tar barrels during road building through the area.
TAR BARREL Brewery & Distillery has seen Matt Bebe and Andrew Gow reunite to continue producing award winning craft beers at 72 Watt Road Mornington. And now with the introduction of a whiskey and gin distillery it has widened their ability to offer more crafted taste experiences.
The venue will also maintain their belief in 'The Spirit of Local' - a commitment to supporting and sourcing from the Mornington Peninsula community.
Core and specialty beers, produced onsite, are available on tap to enjoy alongside their smoked BBQ and famous wood-fired pizzas. You can also try their crafted spirits - Australian Whiskey, Gin & Vodka, as well as local wines.
Sit back and relax in the beer garden. Dogs on leads always welcomed.
A true Mornington Peninsula experience.
A destination not to be missed.

    Called in to Tar Brewery yesterday for the first time. We saw Matt Bradshaw was playing and we love his music. What we found was a great brewery staff were very friendly and obliging special mention to the young guy behind the bar. Ordered 2 x pizzas Both were delicious especially the roast pizza with gravy. Def a different flavour Will definitely be back again Robyn and Peter

    The place has a good vibe, however, keeping the entrance door closed on a cold day would keep the place less drafty and add to the general comfort of patrons. The addition of offering coffee would be most welcome.
