Billson's Brewery

29 Last Street, Beechworth

Founded in 1865, Billson's is one of Australia's oldest breweries, quietly tucked in one of Beechworth leafy side streets.

The landmark red brick facade was the home of award-winning ales, porters and stouts well into the 1950’s. From the 1920’s, the brewery slowly increased their small-batch production of sodas and traditional non-alcoholic cordials under the 'Murray Breweries' label. These beverages were and still are produced following hand-written original recipes and methods, with unique flavours including Sarsaparilla, Portello and Raspberry Vinegar.

Today, the story of Billson's is the one of a comeback, a return to quality. About the revival of craftsmanship and a commitment to local. About the truth that sometimes we don't need to reinvent when we can simply restore.

Billson’s beverage offering has expanded to include a range of 'all natural' small-batch cordials, traditional and natural sodas as well as craft beers, premium spirits and mixers.
