White Rabbit Brewery
Opened in early 2009, the White Rabbit Brewery is located in the main street of Healesville in the Yarra Valley, and is an off-shoot of the successful WA-based Little Creatures Brewing. Utilising a pair of impressive-looking 100-hectolitre German-made open fermenters, together with Little Creatures’ former hop-back and bottling line, White Rabbit Dark Ale was, initially, their sole brand. A complex, flavoursome and hoppy dark brew, it was joined later by White Ale. The latter is in the style of an easy-drinking Belgian witbier and – in an inspired touch – is primed with local orange blossom honey at the bottle-conditioning stage.
