Whether you are looking to sample a mouth-watering pub lunch with a group of friends, check out a great band with your tribe of music lovers, or hide quietly in a nook with your phone and a pint of your choice, you know a great pub when you find it – it is the one you never want to leave. In this book travel writer Paul Chai hits the road to check out some of the best pubs in Victoria, from the Victorian high country to the wine regions, and a pub you can pull up to by boat.
A great pub fits its location like a glove: it attracts local people, reflects local producers on the menu and taps into, and feels part of, the fabric of the neighbourhood. A great pub will have warmth, intimacy and be welcoming to all, including kids. There are quirky locals, sprawling country beer barns and the odd craft brewery. Some you stay at, some you drink at and some you catch a band at, but all of them are embedded in their local communities, so Paul celebrates the alpine hikes, the winery tours and the wildlife treks that surround them.
Hit the road for the perfect pint, the longest lunches and the comfiest couches at the best pubs in Victoria.
