With Victoria open for summer, there’s a whole lot of possibility out there. And the beers will be plentiful.

If you’re heading to summer hot spot Lorne this summer, you’re in for a treat, as Mornington Peninsula brewery, Jetty Road Brewery is setting up shop there this summer.

Jetty Road Brewery has taken over the Cuda Bar site on Mountjoy Parade and will feature a 70s-inspired outdoor beer garden with room for 150 people.

“Since we were teenagers, we have visited Lorne as holiday-makers and are so stoked to be announcing that we will be setting up camp for our pop up bar this summer,” says Jetty Road co-founder Blake Bowden.

“I have always loved heading to Lorne and this venue always stood out to me as an incredible space. To imagine 15 years later we would be opening the doors to expand our own brewery in this exact spot is a dream come true,” added Jetty Road’s other co-founder, Grant Rogers.

Jetty Road Brewery’s Summer Tap Room opens at 82 Mountjoy Parade, Lorne on Friday 4 December.



About Lorne:

Lorne is a seaside town on Louttit Bay in VictoriaAustralia. It is situated about the Erskine River and is a popular destination on the Great Ocean Road tourist route. Lorne is in the Surf Coast Shire and at the 2016 census had a population of 1,114 but this figure grows during the holiday season.

Lorne is situated on a bay named after Captain Louttit, who sought shelter there in 1841 while supervising the retrieval of cargo from a nearby shipwreck. The coast was surveyed five years later in 1846. The first European settler was William Lindsay, a timber-cutter who began felling the area in 1849. The first telegraph arrived in 1859. Subdivision began in 1869 and in 1871 the town was named after the Marquess of Lorne from Argyleshire in Scotland on the occasion of his marriage to Princess Louise, one of Queen Victoria‘s daughters. The Post Office opened on 29 April 1874.
