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 take you to a local brewery to see where the action takes place.

The gents at Black Hops Brewing have built an intimate venue with a tasting room perfectly structured to sample their core range of delicious beers. Speak to the brewers, learn about the brewing process and see how everything functions by getting up close and personal.

Having recently reopened in a larger, shinier, airier space, Burleigh Brewing was a pioneer in bringing craft beer to the masses. Sample their well-known beers and try some of their special releases – maybe even take some home with you! If we time it right, we may get to indulge in a tour of their new brewery.
Balter Brewing, allows guests to overlook the stainless steel tanks or sit in the sun on comfy cushions. Witness beer production on a larger scale as we sample their newly tapped brews and learn about what’s still to come.

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.

With fresh and funky Miami vibes, Lost Palms is all about embracing the Gold Coast lifestyle! Here we have the chance to kick back and relax, try some of their delicious cold brews and indulge in some Gold Coast sun.
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 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 taxi rank at the main entrance to the centre.
  • Sandbar overlooks the lapping waves of Surfers Paradise. Start your day here with a delicious breakfast or sample beers from around the globe (mainly Australia, New Zealand and the US) by the bottle or on tap. A great way to start or end your day, Sandbar is one block north of Cavill Mall.
  • Helensvale Station is a central stop for anyone on the train coming from either direction. We’ll be waiting out where the taxis are so you can’t miss us.

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.
