Frequently Asked Questions2018-04-06T12:41:06+00:00
You must be 18 years or older. Our venues may ask for ID so make sure you bring some, preferably a driver’s license. If you can’t legally drink, you won’t have much fun anyway.
We suggest wearing closed-toe shoes as we will be visiting working breweries which may have that as a requirement – and we would hate for you to miss out on something cool due to footwear (or possibly step in something you’d rather not). If your toes are showing you may be asked to wear a pair of the brewer’s gumboots for safety. Not a sexy look. The choice is yours.

Aside from that, wear something comfortable and that you are happy to pose for photos in.

Each tour has a specific pick up point listed, as these differ for our Brisbane and Gold Coast tours. Drop off points also vary, but you’ll either end where you began or at a beer bar of your choice from our list of partners.
If you are part of a group of 4+ guests all departing from the same location that is not one of our designated pick-up points, please contact us directly and we may be able to arrange private pick up.
We absolutely suggest you do – you never know where you might next get it – but ONLY for takeaway! While you will receive plenty of delicious beer samples during our visits, our venues offer takeaway cans, bottles and/or growlers.
Sure do. You can call or email us to let us know what you’re looking for and we are happy to work something out. Please note we prefer a minimum of 6 people to make a tour private; all of our public tours require a minimum of 2 guests to operate.
Of course! Is there a brewery or bar you’re keen to visit but it’s not included in the tour you most want to go on? Let us know and we are happy to work with you and create a tailored itinerary for you/your group. We need a bit of advance warning, though, so please ensure you give us a heads up. Private bookings only.
What if I have to cancel my booking?
We’ll be awfully sad to see you go, but check our cancellation policy to see what applies to you:

  • between 0 (day of tour) and 7 days before the tour: no refund
  • 8 -14 days before the tour: 50% of the tour price paid per person
  • 15 days or more before the tour: 100% of the tour price paid per person less non-refundable processing fee of 5%
It’s possible you may get tipsy on one of our tours – we’re plying you with delicious, easy-drinking brews, many of which have a higher alcohol content than you may be used to!

Please note that Hop On Brewery Tours reserve the right to ask you to stop drinking (trust us, we’re looking out for you). We will also take any action we deem reasonable, including removing you from the tour (with no refund and no way home), to ensure the tour remains safe and enjoyable for all guests. See T&Cs for further legalese should this situation arise.

Each venue has the right under the Responsible Service of Alcohol laws to stop serving you. You may also be asked to leave the venue.

Please remember, it’s about better beer – not more beer.

Reservations are required. Book on our website by selecting your preferred tour and going through the steps until you receive your email confirmation. We accept payment by Visa, MasterCard, American Express and direct deposit. We can’t take cash on the day, unfortunately, because the ATO doesn’t particularly like that.
No problem. Let us know what they are when you book so we can make the necessary arrangements with our partners. You get to order the day of the tour and our menus have something for everyone.
NO. By law there can be no drinking on the bus. You really won’t need to anyway. Trust us, there is going to be plenty of beer at each venue.
That’s great! We love helping introduce “non-beer-drinkers” to the wacky world of microbreweries! From refreshing lagers to biting IPAs and sweet ambers, we are here to educate and help you find a beer that you will appreciate and enjoy. It doesn’t matter if you think you’ve tried them all or if you normally drink shandys – come with us for an unforgettable experience.
Yes, we absolutely do! We have a few rules around them, though, including the fact that there is strictly no drinking on the vehicle(s) and we don’t encourage additional purchases at the venues we visit. We want you to have a great time, and with our focus on beer education and appreciation, you get plenty of beer tasters included. Our tours are a perfect warm up for what may turn into a big night out!

Please note that certain breweries do not allow bucks parties. We comply with their wishes, therefore some itineraries may be altered from what is listed online to ensure we maintain an awesome relationship with everyone in the industry. If you have a specific request or concern, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly.
