our story

Back in 2015, a Barista, a Photographer, and an Arborist walked into a bar. Over a cold beer they discussed how it was a crying shame that our beautiful region didn’t have a Craft Brewery of its own like many of the other holiday regions across Victoria. The craft beer scene in Australia was booming and the Grampians was missing out.

Fast forward three and a half years of planning, jumping through hoops, and hard work, and Halls Gap in the Grampians had its first fair dinkum Craft Beer Brewery in April 2019. Paper Scissors Rock Brew Co was born out of a want to provide a fun meeting place for the community; a social hub in the town centre. A social hub with Fresh Beer, Great Food and Live Music.

In a light-hearted twist only months before opening, the brewery still hadn’t settled on the best name. So ‘Paper Scissors Rock’ was suggested to decide the outcome. And decide the outcome it did. But rather than play the hand-over-fist game to decide, the fun and memorable name of Paper Scissors Rock was chosen instead.

Paper Scissors Rock Brew Co is easily found in the town centre of Halls Gap, in the Grampians region of Western Victoria. It’s the place to visit to unwind after a bushwalk, to relax after visiting waterfalls and lookouts, and to chill out with your mates and family. Enjoy the choice of 8 taps of craft beer made fresh on site, whilst you savour a chef prepared meal, and listen to regular live music events in the courtyard. Don’t miss visiting the brewery on your next visit to Halls Gap.
