Check out the full itinerary:

These neighbouring breweries, situated in the Newstead and Teneriffe areas of Brisbane, are staples in the Queensland craft beer repertoire and an ideal place to start your tour. Sample their core ranges – plus maybe a few seasonal brews if the timing is right.

We will visit both of these Queensland brewing icons, learning about the history of each and discovering differences of flavour across their ranges.

Guests have the chance to check out one of Brisbane’s newest breweries, where you will receive a warm welcome and cold beers. Their taps are always changing, serving anything from an IPA to a sour, so come along to see what’s on today!
Settle in at the bar or relax in the outdoor garden, where we can see how magic is made. Catchment produces lean, simple, fresh flavours in their namesake beers, and also offer a wide variety of Australian taps and bottles for enjoying.

Across the road is the renowned Archive Bar, recognized as one of the places in Brisbane to taste a variety of local and national craft beer.

Our third and final venue may be one listed above, or we may switch it up and visit Archer Brewery, Brisbane Brewing Co., All Inn Brewing Co. or one of the other outstanding craft breweries in the area!
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 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.
  • Foundry Records is currently undergoing a few changes, so keep your eyes peeled! In the mean time, we will still be picking up here – you can grab a coffee at the Elephant Hotel next door or the Night Owl if you’re looking for a caffeine boost.

Drop Offs:

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, 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.
