EAT & DRINK

On Point Brewery

Situated in the charming but vibrant town of Alexandra, nestled between Lake Eildon and the picturesque Goulburn river, On Point Brewery provides a spot for locals and tourists alike to get together and share a beer.

A long-time dream of co-founders Chris Turner and James Smith, On Point Brewery calls the old Alexandra Butter Factory home, a beautiful and striking building in which some of Australia’s best beers are lovingly brewed.

Their approach to brewing is simple; make great craft beer inspired by the beauty of the local landscape.

Each of their beers are made with an emphasis on quality. And no matter whether you’re taking a dip in Lake Eildon on a summer afternoon, chasing that elusive trout on the mighty Goulburn river, or simply relaxing in front of the campfire as the sun goes down, we have a beer for you!

The taproom and dog friendly beer garden are open Friday through to Sunday with a great selection of on-site brewed beers, as well as pizzas and kransky sausages available all day.
