Our Story

The Aireys Pub (1904) is a Great Ocean Road icon. In 1983 the Ash Wednesday fires burned it to the ground and the pub ran out of a tin shed until it was rebuilt. In 2011 the business closed, developers circled, and a town with no pub seemed imminent. In a last minute coup, a group of locals pitched in and saved it. We’ve renovated and reinstated it as one of Australia's greatest coastal pubs.

The beer garden is epic, there’s live music every Saturday night, an open fire warms the bar on cool winter nights, the sunsets turn up right on cue every day, the food is fresh and local, and even better... We brew our own beer!

Located on site, Salt Brewing Co. creates a variety of premium beers, from clean crisp lagers, wheat beers and pale ales to funky unfiltered IPA’s. We use no artificial ingredients or additives. Just pure, fresh, local, Australian made beer.

We’re the luckiest people on the planet. We don’t dream of living somewhere else, or working some other job, we love it here.

Welcome to our town and our pub, we hope you love it as much as we do.
