Check out the full itinerary:

After your pick up, we will begin the day with beer tasting at Newstead Brewing Co where you’re encouraged to sample all the core range of beers on tap – plus maybe a few seasonal or one-off beers. Your guides will take you through beer ingredients, including some witty, historical commentary, and enlist a brilliant Newstead team member to walk you through the brewery and explain the complete brewing process.

Like what you’ve tasted? Grab a couple six-packs or purchase a growler to fill and refill with your favourite beers from Newstead Brewing Co.

We head around the corner to Green Beacon Brewing Co, where their nautical theme continues through the various craft beers on offer. With seasonal releases throughout the year and a refreshing core range, Green Beacon encompasses the community spirit brought back to Australia after worldly travels.
Archer Brewery is located in Spring Hill underneath the International Hotel. Maybe you’ve passed it, but unless you take the time to explore, it’s easy to miss this on-site brewery. The system has been around longer than most of the others in Brisbane, however the brewery is now under new ownership and focuses on fresh, all-Australian ingredients in their beers.

We ensure you get to sample the lot as you enjoy a delicious pub meal – think pizzas, burgers, steak, salad – in Archer’s Bunker: a unique, underground space!

We end our day with a visit to All Inn Brewing Co. They’ve not only got a core range to taste, but are constantly creating some new and exciting flavours that we may find on tap. Sometimes they haven’t even updated their printed tap list, so ask the brewer on hand or the bartenders for their suggestions.
Alternatively, we may end our day by visiting Bacchus Brewing where you have the chance to sample a variety of beers from a wide range of ever-changing options. Bacchus is known for their creative beers: some feature local produce, others pay homage to pop culture, and a handful satisfy the sweet tooth (one of our favourites is their Snickers-inspired chocolate ale), so you’re sure to find a few that tickle your tastebuds.

With a fully operational brewery that’s almost always in action, this is a great place to continue to learn about the brewing process and ask any last-minute questions you may have thought up.

Where a location is indicated, we will pick up you outside the venue so please keep an eye out for our van – you can’t miss it!

Pick Ups:

  • The Gresham (308 Queen Street, Brisbane) is an historic pub in central Brisbane. From Central Station, exit toward Ann Street. Past the ANZAC Memorial and through Post Office Square, next to the NAB bank, you’ll find The Gresham tucked away. Alternatively you can exit toward Edward Street, head down the hill and turn left onto Queen Street. Walk about 1/2 block and The Gresham will be next to the NAB on your left. Please note The Gresham does not open until 4pm on Saturdays and is closed on Sundays; we will still pick up here and there are plenty of places in Post Office Square to get a coffee and/or breakfast.
  • Daily Planet Cafe (228 Wickham St, Fortitude Valley) is a very short wallk from the Fortitude Valley Station – come out, hang a left and turn right at the Elephant Hotel (Wickham St) and DPC is on your right. If you hit the Night Owl, you’ve gone too far. Daily Planet Cafe is a comic-book-inspired cafe that serves scenestr coffee and offers guests a 10% discount on their drink purchases when they show their tour confirmation for that day’s tour. Bonus!

We are flexible with our drop-off locations within the city based on guests’ needs and requests.

Included in the price: transportation in our private, air-conditioned van, guided brewery tour with explanation of the brewing process, all beer samples at the breweries we visit, lunch, beer education and history, water & snacks, and witty commentary (well, we think it is).

Please note: itinerary subject to change based on traffic, closures, new openings, events or spur-of-the-moment decisions, however we will ensure you receive everything listed above.

Not finding the tour you want on the date you need? Give us a call – we might have created a special tour for the day that we can get you on, or we may be sold out. But you’ll never know unless you ask. We’re always happy to help and check availability for you.
