Check out the full itinerary:

10:45am: Meet at Newstead Brewing Co (Doggett Street) for an 11:00am departure. Make sure you’ve eaten a decent brekky before we hit the road and head south!

12-1:30pm: We’ll start with some lunch at a classic Gold Coast craft beer bar, Bine, each meal paired with a paddle of cold frothies, where we can all get to know each other and discuss what some of our favourite Aussie beers are! (Lunch and tasters included in price)

1:30-2:30pm: After some lunch, we’ll duck into a residential neighbourhood to be surprised and delighted with what Black Hops has on tap; here we will have the chance to check out their brewery and taste their fresh brews. (Tasters included in price)

3:30-4:30pm: From here, we will move on to an original and iconic Gold Coast brewery: Burleigh Brewing, where we will walk through the brewery and learn about their history as the longest-operating brewery on the Gold Coast. (Tasters included in price)

5-6pm: Of course no trip would be complete without the so-hot-it’s-cool Balter (maybe we’ll even spot a surfer or two!), where beach meets beer. Award-winning brewer Scotty Hargreave creates some delicious beers to keep you refreshed, and we’ll have a tasting paddle here. (Tasters included in price)

6pm-ish: Once everyone has had their thirst quenched, we’ll hop on the bus back to Brisbane.

Throughout the day we keep you well-fed and full of delicious beer, with plenty of samples accompanied by tasting notes and witty commentary. The brewers are happy to show you the ropes, help you understand the brewing process and answer any questions you may have. Whether it’s a hot day and you need a cool drink or it’s a cool day and you want to warm up, our Coldie on the Goldie tour is perfect for all occasions.

Don’t forget to bring a photo ID with you.


Please note that we are visiting working breweries and it’s suggested you wear closed-toe shoes so you don’t miss out on any of the fun. Also, since they don’t always run on a set schedule, we will try and catch the brewers in action but that can’t always be guaranteed; keep an open mind on the day because no matter what or who we see, the beers are always epic. Sometimes the itineraries will change at a whim; this may be because of traffic, a last-minute decision from the brewery or any number of things, so we ask for your patience and flexibility.

Pick up and drop off will be at Newstead Brewing Co, Doggett Street Brisbane
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.
