Check out the full itinerary:

We start with an introduction to beer’s main ingredients and a few tasters to experience the unique flavours in each beer and understand the differences in what you’re drinking, whether it’s a lager or a stout. Once we’ve had a chat about the history of beer and a solid basic understanding of how everything fits together, we will get you behind the scenes to see where the action takes place.

With fresh and funky Miami vibes, Lost Palms is all about embracing the Gold Coast lifestyle! Take some time to kick back and relax, check out the brewing equipment and try some of their delicious, cold beers.

Gold Coast’s first brewpub, Precinct Brewing, offers guests a range of beer styles fresh from the tank, as well as delicious pizzas and – most evenings – live music that invites you to kick back and chill out.

The Gold Coast’s first Belgian brewery, Madocke Brewing has swung open the doors to their brand new, full-scale brewery! A welcoming venue with an authentic outdoor beer garden, the charm here makes it hard to tear yourself away. Guests relax with true-blue Belgian beer made right here on the Gold Coast and can hear the story of their humble beginnings. A core-range of beers plus guest taps ensure there is something for everyone to enjoy.

The crew at Black Hops Brewing have created a welcoming venue with a tasting room perfectly structured to sample their range of delicious, award-winning beers. Speak to the brewers, learn about the brewing process and see how everything functions by getting up close and personal.

Burleigh Brewing is a pioneer in bringing craft beer to the masses, with the longest-running craft brewery in Queensland. Their tantalising tasting paddles filled with well-known beers and special releases will keep you well hydrated – and you might even be tempted take some home with you! Offering a VIP experience to our guests, we are treated to a walk-through of the brewery to understand the brewing process.

After taking out the top spot in Australian beer’s biggest popularity contest, Balter Brewing always offers guests something new and different – as well as their tried and true favourites. Take the opportunity to overlook the stainless steel tanks or sit in the sun on comfy cushions while beer is bubbling away in the background.

At your request, we will drop you off at one of our partner pubs, where you can keep drinking delicious beer to your hearts’ content.

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:

  • Loose Moose (Oasis Centre, 75 Surf Parade, Broadbeach) is on the ground floor of the Oasis Centre in the heart of Broadbeach. Easy to reach by G:Link, the Loose Moose is near the main entrance to the centre.
  • Helensvale Station is a central stop for anyone on the train coming from either direction. We’ll be waiting on the heavy rail side near where the taxis are so you can’t miss us.
  • Sandbar (52 Esplanade, Surfers Paradise) overlooks the lapping waves of Surfers Paradise. Start your day here with a delicious breakfast and coffee. The beer options aren’t great (they used to be!). Sandbar is one block north of Cavill Mall.

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, snacks, and witty commentary (well, we think it is).
