Beginning with an easy drinking wheat beer you sample a range of specialty beers culminating in a rich chocolate porter. Includes light snacks and a gourmet lunch.  For those who are not quite such beer enthusiasts we do offer alternatives; local wines, ciders and soft drinks.  On July 29, 2017 11:30am – 16:30pm  info@vgr.com.au 03 5470 6658 http://www.vgr.com.au
