Our Story

Our Story

The history runs deep in all that we do.

The story of St Andrews Beach Brewery dates back to the early 2000’s, when our Co-founder Andrew Purchase built the racetrack on the property for the royal family of Australian horse racing – the Freedman Brothers.

When the property became available in 2015, Andrew and Michael Freedman saw an opportunity that was too good to miss. With the infrastructure in place and with a story like no other, Andrew, Michael and their passionate team of co-owners set about turning the former stables into a truly unique brewery.

After 12 months of construction, the stable doors opened to the public in December 2017 and the beers have not stop pouring since.

Our Home

St Andrews Beach Brewery is situated on a 92-acre property formally known as ‘Markdel’. In the mid-2000’s, the property housed up to 80 thoroughbred horses and boasted its very own grassed race track. Over 100 group one winners called the stables home, including multiple Melbourne Cup, Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate and Golden Slipper champions – Makybe Diva, Mummify and Alinghi.

Our Brewery

Our brewery is underpinned by the philosophy to brew the finest beer on the Mornington Peninsula. Every drop of beer is brewed and packaged on-site in our state-of-the-art brewhouse and canning line using the finest hops, malt and local artesian water. Next time you’re at the stables, you’ll see our beautiful Italian brewhouse and passionate team of brewers on display for you all to see. It doesn’t get any fresher than that.
