Geelong's beer scene just got a major upgrade, thanks to the opening of Valhalla Brewhall in the iconic Federal Mills location in North Geelong. 

The Federal Mills site, known for its creative hub and hospitality, is now home to Valhalla’s impressive 1500-litre brewhouse, capable of producing up to 500,000 litres of beer annually.

This is a game-changer for the local brewing scene, with Valhalla Brewhall positioned to become a prominent destination for beer enthusiasts and locals alike.

For those planning a visit, the brewery offers a unique experience. The taproom boasts a 200-person capacity and with 16 taps pouring a variety of fresh and local beers made right there on-site. From crisp and refreshing lagers to hoppy IPAs and rich stouts, there’s a beer to suit every palate. And if you’re feeling peckish, opt for a delicious, cheesy freshly baked pizza from local pop-up Tillage Pizza – the perfect snack to accompany your pint. 

While a prominent destination for beer lovers with the vast brewing tanks on show, the brewhouse is complemented by a range of ciders, wines, and spirits, ensuring that no one goes thirsty. Plus, the free pool table and jukebox guarantee entertainment from noon until closing time, Tuesday through Sunday.

But Valhalla Brewhall is not just a brewery; it’s a haven for music lovers too. Local legends from rock, blues, soul, and folk roots will grace the stage inside, providing the perfect backdrop to a night out with friends or a casual evening with a pint and a slice.

The original venue, Valhalla Brewing & Taproom in Union Street, will continue its operations in Geelong’s CBD, maintaining its established presence in the city, having just celebrated its fifth birthday. 

The new Brewhall is set to add another layer of vibrancy to the area, offering a unique space for functions, work gatherings, or casual meet-ups with friends. So whether you’re planning a midweek pint, a Friday night out, or a lazy Sunday afternoon, Valhalla Brewhall has you covered. Skål!
