    Escape to Hickinbotham of Dromana

    Hickinbotham of Dromana was established in 1988 by Andrew and Terryn Hickinbotham. They set up on Manna Gum woodland overlooking the Dromana plains and the blue waters of Martha Bay. Andrew represents the 3rd, & Cal (behind the bar) and Jake the 4th generation (and now current brewer) of the family famous for winemaking and wine education in Australia.

    Our Wines

    Wines are grown, made and bottled onsite under the watchful eye of winemaker James Janda who strongly believes that wine is made in the vineyard. As a result, Hickinbotham is about great wine and beer, fresh local food and a relaxed atmosphere. Relaxation comes easily with our cobbled brick floor, warm, open fireplace, live music, rustic surroundings, and stunning views.

    The Hix Microbrewery was established in 2006 with our brewer Jake Hickinbotham brewing award-winning beers, including a Pilsner, Pale ale, Brown ale and Irish stout year-round. In addition, seasonally, we produce various ales and special experimental beers for beer lovers.

    Gluten-Free Beer

    Whether you miss heading to the pub with friends or cracking a tinnie with family, we're brewing great gluten-free beer that's safe for all to enjoy – without compromise. In order to journey through a new world of beer that everyone can explore, we built a dedicated gluten-free brewery. And it's not just about accessing quality beer; it's about the whole experience; from the flavour to the look, feel and smell – and not forgetting great company to share it in.

    We believe that nobody over the age of 18 in Australia should miss out on tasting this experience, which is why we have two gluten-free beer brands; our TWØBAYS craft beer range launched in December 2018 and our GFB easy-drinking range launched in September 2021. Both offer great gluten-free beer for everyone. 

    We are proudly situated in Dromana amongst Victoria's great Mornington Peninsula breweries, and we are Australia's first dedicated gluten-free Brewery and Taproom. 

    Mornington Peninsula Brewery and Taproom

    In December 2018, we opened Australia's first dedicated gluten-free brewery and craft beer Taproom in Dromana, on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula. Our proximity to Melbourne’s CBD makes for only a short trip to experience the best gluten-free craft beers that Mornington Peninsula’s breweries offer.

    Pouring up to nine gluten-free beers – brewed metres from the taps – we're proud to offer everyone a new world of flavour to explore in paddles, pots or schooners at our Mornington Peninsula Brewery and Taproom.

    We also serve wood-fired gluten-free pizzas, local cider and wine, and soft drinks – and the fridge is always stocked for you to explore our cans and cartons at home.

    We were thrilled to get the Bronze Medal for Best New Tourism Business in the 2019 RACV Victorian Tourism Awards. We look forward to having you for a beer!
