The classically built Steam Packet Hotel has been a part of the Williamstown community since 1863, replacing the 1839 building, The Ship Inn. Located on the corner of Cole Street, the Packet is renowned for its range of craft beers such as Holgate, West City, 4 Pines, Coopers and Two Birds. The wine and cocktail menu is also worth the read with labels like Rockford, Rusden, Kooyong Estate, Shut the Gate and Jim Barry. There is also gin, single malts, cognac, and Armagnac. The Packet also serves lunch and dinner, and there is live music every Friday.
