The Mornington Peninsula is a wonderful if not expensive wine region. But sometimes you just want a beer. We were there to taste stouts at the Red Hill Brewery. First though a steak & kidney pudding swimming in a sea of gravy and vegetables matched with a good bitter beer. The best thing about this place is that the beers actual taste of something unlike the biggest selling Australian brews like VB. The only thing missing? A log fire.
