At an altitude of 1550 meters, Blizzard Brewing Company is Australia's highest brewery. We brew with fresh snow-melt fed spring water sourced from underground aquifers. Located in the Victorian Alps at Dinner Plain Alpine Village, it is 10km from the ski lifts at Mt Hotham, and 50 meters from the Cobungra ski lift.
Blizzard Brewing Company founder Mark Hubbard hails from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, where there is a strong craft beer tradition and a long history of breweries being located at altitude in ski resorts. As a passionate skier, hiker and cyclist, Mark was drawn to the High Country of North East Victoria, where the only thing needed to make the Alpine experience complete was a brewery above the snowline. So Blizzard Brewing was born to bring that particular aspect of the Rocky Mountain Alpine experience to the Victorian Alps.
There is another reason for situating a craft brewery in Victoria's High Country - The Water. At Blizzard, Today's Powder is Tomorrow's Beer. Basically, we brew with snow-melt. Fresh, pure Victorian Alps spring water. It is sourced from the high altitude aquifers of Dinner Plain, which are fed by snow melt. Water is the main ingredient in beer, and ours is the purest available. No other brewer in Australia can source their water as we do, to enable us to bring you Beer Above All.
