White Rabbit Brewery has hopped from its original home in Healesville to the Little Creatures Brewery Village in Geelong South, a sprawling site that once housed the Valley Worsted woollen mill.

White Rabbit's new HQ features a beer tasting room, a store showcasing regional produce such as charcuterie, olives, cheese and preserves to eat on-site or take home, and a barrel hall, where the brewery will experiment with barrel-ageing and blending.

The village already offers tours of the Little Creatures brewery, a fortnightly artisan market and the Canteen dining hall, serving beer-friendly dishes such as pizzas, lamb ribs and ploughman's lunch-style brewers' boards. Little Creatures will close its Fitzroy dining hall in February.
